The Home & Lawn Service, Official Picture Thread

Well, i will try to make one thread for pics, it seems to be pretty trendy around here.

Well, my name is Russell, i am 17 years old, and "co own a business" with my older brother Ryan. My brother started his business about 10 years ago, he used our moms John Deere 420, and a weed wacker he got from his grandpa to mow our lawn, and he would mow a few rentals we had down the road (that was like 12-13 years ago). But anywho, when he started his business, he had a 92 or 93 GMC Sierra.

I dont remember what was first, but he bought a John Deere rider (used) that fit in the bed of his truck. And he mowed our rentals i think, and my moms office. Later on he went to Sears, and bought a 32" or 36" Craftsmen WB, and got a free or cheap Craftsmen pushmower, and leaf blower . After that he bought a snowmobile trailer from our neighbors, and used that for a while.

A few years later, he purchased a 16 or 18 ft car hauler, with sides. He painted that up and hauled his stuff with that and was growing along the way..... He sold his JD rider too.

In 06, he bought a 95 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4, and put a Western Plow on it. He also bought a 12ft landscape trailer, with high sides. (which we just sold.) A few months later he bought his Exmark Metro on Ebay, from a guy in Cincinati. I started working with him more.

07, we bought our Exmark Lazer Z 60" cut from some guy down in like Kentucky. We had acumulated some hand helds along the way too. He also bought another 95 Dodge Ram 2500, whick had a big rusty Fisher with it. We got a Dodge Ram 2500 with V10, but never used it for work, it just sat at our moms.

08, We sold all Dodges, and the GMC, and bought a 99 Chevy 2500, and put a Western plow on it.

09, We bought our 2009 Chevy 3500HD, and Boss V plow. We bought our 16ft traliler.

This year my brother is leaving the company, well kinda, its still his. But he is tired of grass, so me and my brother in law will do the mowing. In the winter he will use a plow truck, and we will use the other. Well, heres where the pics start.....

1,2, the John Deere 420, that helped him start it all. It has a 60" cut.
3, the 3500, and the Lazer Z.
