And we don't cut corners. Both trucks run diesel (Ford 7.3 & 6.0), so gas mileage is "decent". And having a son who loves to do updates is a huge plus!
If that works for you. Myself I like to make money or what is the point in doing the work.
I have two dodge diesel 5.9 cummins both get good milage and have two dodge 1/2 tons with 318`s they get ok gas mileage
when I send a guy out the most I can get 7 maybe 8 yard ,due the distance between propertys. If I give them too many they either damage the properties or my mowers(I`m sure most of you can relate too this one)
