Pictures of Equipment

Hi. Ive been doing my own landscaping thing on the side for the last year. I work a full time job and do this on the side. I am 26 yrs old. I have been doing this since I was a kid by myselg. As I got older and went away to college i did landscaping here and there for friends. I drove city trucks in the winter for years and finally bought my own plow truck last Junuary 2010. When the spring came I decided to try the landscaping and see how it went. Figured I have the truck why not work it year round.....So I went out and bought some equipment. It turned out really good for me. I have 1 person with me usually part time and am thinking of hiring a full timer to run the truck during the day while im at work.

I have been on this site for a year learning and looking at al the pictures....so hear are some of mine. The scag 36', billy goat leaf loader and honda push mowers are still in hibernation. Just brought in the smaller equipment to tune it up for the spring!!!!!!

Thanks guys I am going to go out in the shed tomorrow and I will get some more pictures of the bigger equipment.

--I love the SRM225. It has plenty of power for me and I have no complaints. The PB413h i bought three 4 years ago when i bought my house. It was good for residential use and day to day maintenance. But come to the fall cleanups the redmax is a BEAST. It was well worth the money. It cut my time and efficiency in half. I am a one man show with a helper so efficiency is key for me. The addition of the Redmax and the billy goat leaf loader made a world of difference.

All in all a good starter backup or secondary blower

So it can stay warm and dry at night so that it's willing to fire up and make him money in the morning!

You guys don't sleep with your 2 cycle stuff at the foot of your bed?

Defiantly a nice looking rig!

I'm looking to set-up my residential trailer similar to what you have. (sadly not enclosed unless I make it one with some wood.) Looks like a money producing set-up! How much do you find yourself using your push mowers?

A dump bed is something I would like to get in the future... sadly not this year because I've got to invest in a big ZTR for my commercial properties. Doing only one or the other (res. or com.) sounds like a good idea... but alas those $200 a pop commercials sure are nice.
