Few pictures of truck, condo complex, broken glass, and fall flier pdf

Havent been on much but a lot of great things and not so great things have happened this season. We have been busy as ever and i havent had my camera with me much so here are some cell phone pictures.

Also, i will keep this thread updated with the fall pictures. Right now i am getting a swing away mount for my leaf loader fabricated for the back of my dump truck so i can have the trailer still behind the truck when the loader is working. And also i will get some pictures of the leaf box up here as well as soon as we get it built.

The first picture of the broken doorwall is something my employee failed to tell me about until the client called blowing up my phone. Second is my back truck window shattered. The idiot on the hi low loading my tthp in the back of my bed, loaded it in handles first and didnt realize how short my bed was and pushed the glass right inside of the cab and shattered the window.

Here is a picture of my dump truck right now. Put the diamond plate tool boxes on finally and got the airbags installed as well. Sandblasted the bed and repaired some deep rust then bed lined the entire thing. Held up great throwing cement on it for two days straight, not even a chip . Its about 1/4" thick.

I will slowly add pictures as i take them from the remainder of the year. We picked up some great accounts and dropped a lot of PITA accounts. Also had both baggers for the tthp's stolen out of the truck last week. Anyone know a good bagger thats not gonna break the bank like the accelerators?

Enjoy

Microsoft Word.

I have been using it my entire life and it still has its horrible points of moving the format around as you go. I know word like the back of my hand and it works very well until you want to design a logo or swooshes or lines like my other advertisments. Then i have to go to my logo design software.

The dump truck has turned out quite well since you've got it. What bedliner did you put in the back?

i actually got it on ebay. Its the most durable product i have ever used and i swear by it, i put it on the underside of my dodge and dump truck chassis as well. Completely undercoated the whole entire trucks and wheel wells also.

I got this kit and the another 2 gallons of everything(the stuff goes fast and is very thick) One small kit would cover my dump truck with about 1/16" of product.
