Bare with me, this is my first time posting pictures on here.
I finally got a chance to get some pictures yesterday while I had some free time. This is of a new trailer and some equipment I bought back in Janurary for a second crew.

One of our Honda walkbehinds.... it's 4 or 5 years old but we just put it in service this year.

This is a picture of one of the Toro's I bought back in December. I have really grown to like it!

Here is the back of that same trailer, had a sign made not to long ago. Hammon's was nice enough to let me use his format with the green and white.

Here is a picture of one of the trimmer racks with 2 echo's and a new stihl that I bought a month or so ago. The stihl changes from a hedge trimmer to a trimmer.

Picture of a Little Wonder blower, it really helps on the bigger properties and in the fall with the leaves!

Here is another trailer that I really don't use all that much. It is a 16ft that I've had for a while. We use it mostly for hauling away debri and other junk.

This is a picture of our shop where we keep everything. My father own's the building so he gives me a deal on the rent.

This is a field across from the shop where another landscaper and I dump stuff. (technically we aren't supposed to dump there anymore though).

Here is a picture of a aerator that I bought a couple of months back from Sunbelt rentals. I've bought several used ones for them. I only paid $300 for this one and it runs great with that Honda engine (needs some cosmetic work though).

Thats all I could get at the time. I will try to get some more pictures of our other truck and trailer with equipment later, they were out working when I took these.

I like your shirts. Did you get them done online or local?

I got them done local but she may do online orders also. I only paid like $9 each for them I think. Can't remember exactly though, it was a while ago.

Eric 1, Haha, im not very original.... ECM is my initials. I was going to change it last year but it was going to cost too much to do it right. Also, this is the name that all of our customers know us by and it would be stupid to change it I think.

About the equipment, as far as the mowers go, itís basically 2 of the 52" Hondaís and 2 of the Toroís you see, and another Honda that is 60Ē. I used to have a Scag wb but sold it last fall. I have 3 16Ē dual axle open trailers. I also used to pull around a 20Ē foot enclosed trailer but it wasnít mine, it was my dads that they use for his business (not landscaping) and because of insurance reasons I canít use it anymore. Thatís the main stuff, I also have miscellaneous trimmers (mostly Echo) and that one Stihl, several edgerís, couple of back pack blowers, that one Little Wonder, and 2 Ryan aerators. I think thatís about everything. --- I also can share or borrow some equipment from a really good friend that is also in the business... actually did that last week because I had that new Stihl brake on me!

Mkwl- I love the Little Wonder blower, I bought 1 last year to test it out and will prob. buy another one later this year for the fall.

How have the honda mowers worked out for you?

SSLC, I love the Honda mowers. They haven't caused me any big problems and are easy to maintain. The only thing is it's hard to get parts for them now that they don't make them anymore.

Got a number for that tshirt place. Are they soft, and do the graphics stick to you?

Jwingfield2k, the tshirt place is called PKD Screen Printing. They are here in Raleigh NC. Their number is 919-772-9040. The tshirts I had made up were 50/50 weight ash color. The price will depend on how many you have made up. They are awesome quality, and don't stick at all.

How big is the trailer in the first picture?

You stole my idea. I keep my little wonder blower on my trailer the same way. Just pull the front tire over the tail light and strap it down with a bungee cord.

Both of the trailers are 16 feet that I posted.
