Here are some pictures for everyone to enjoy. So many times I wonder what people look like and what not so heres my story. Im 22 years old and have had my business for 3 years now (1 part time, 2 full time).I got into the car business right out of high school which I absolutely loved. However, after 9/11 the business slowly went down hill. I had already slowly acculmuated mowing clients since that previous spring and knew eventually I wanted to go full time. I now service 30 year round clients (80% res. 20% comr) and would like to max out this year with about 45 customers to keep me and my "helper" busy full time. I enjoy being out on the river in the summer and spending time with my dog "Gunner" (hes a 1 yr old great dane) and my girlfreind of 2 years Lindsay. Lindsay is a cosmotologist and enjoy's driving me crazy in here free time. ;)

Did you add the newer style chrome wheels on the 2000 sierra or was it like that when you bought it? Also, do the centercaps have a bowtie on em instead of GMC? Can't even tell it's a gmc without the grille:)

Ryan, yes I put the new style chrome wheels on and yes the are bowties ;). i love you're aluminum ones but for me chrome is so much easier to keep clean, not so much upkeep. How do you like youre MT/R's. my buddy has them and they are sooo soft. how hav they worked plowing? scott

The MT/Rs are not bad, but I should have gone with a different tire for my truck.

They seem to be wearing fine. They have excellent off road traction and they arn't too noisy.

But, they are not good for plowing my hilly driveways. I have 5 steep accounts that I just barely am able to do. I am thinking about putting some snow tires like cooper m&s on my old stock rims just for plowing.

I think my next tires will be bridgestone dueler at revo 265/75/16 load range E.


Here's a pic of one of the steeper driveways I do. It gets steeper at the top. They never look as steep in pictures:)

No I actually sold it when I bought my 3/4 ton. Would of love to have kept it but I really didnt want to plow with a SnowBear! :D LOL. I new that If I wanted to really grow I would need a V. ;)

TreffertLawnWrx

20 footers are about $30k with trailer out the door.

My buddy bought it ($25K), Im getting a 25' now that I can insure it.

I like the PJ you got there. Nice trailers.

Thanks!, I really like the trailer especially with the diamond plate fenders. I called everywhere when buying it and Ingli Auto in Ellsworth WI had the best deal. $1,595 for 16' with dual brakes.

I got a line a 2002 for $48,000. 1 owner, freshwater boat.
New they go for about $80,000. Hate to take that kind of hit.

Ive had to wait 3 years for the 25'. I can barely get truck insurance let alone boat ins, and I still pay $400/month. I have a R6 and a R1 that I got over 20 tickets on. Yes that is really stupid, yes I learned my lesson, and yes jail sucks.
