You have a real nice operation!
You should be proud!

Yeah the Chevy is actually very clean for the year and miles. Only rust it has is on the bottom of the doors. I love driving that little thing.
For buying, depends on the truck, the 01s were all bought new when we phaised out some of the 1990's. Cabovers were new. Dump and chevy were used. Really depends on what we are using it for.
The Isuzus are 550/150 gallon tank fert trucks. Expensive as hell but BY FAR the most efficient setup for fert/herbicide. One of the guys broke a company record last week for jobs done in a week with them.
We've been in business since 1978. Before that my grandpa owned a different business but went with the volume/cheap price attempt. That didn't work out well. Started this company with the complete opposite mindframe and have been at it since.
We offer everything except irrigation. Bread and butter is fert/herbicide.
TBH I may start a daughter company for Landscape Installs. Our name is well known but NOT for landscaping.
