Pro-Lawn Outdoor Services Thread

Hi guys,
Well here is my picture thread that I have been meaning to start for a while now. Figured I'd start my own thread instead of clogging up other people's threads(sry Austin) Just a little info on me. My name is Peter, I'm 16 years old and have my own business. My business name is Pro-Lawn Outdoor services. I service about 20 accts and do other work as well such as landscaping, tree/brush work, spring and fall clean-ups, snow removal, just the usual green industry biz. Here is some pics to start off, I will get better ones tommorrow including my equipment and full set-up.

The first two are of my new truck I just bought 2 weeks ago, its and 2002 Chevy 2500hd. It's got the 6.0 vortec and the base package for the interior. Came with a blizzard 810 power plow. It has 145k on it and a brand new tranny and t-case, Paid 7k for it, I think I got a decent deal. So far I love it, just have to fix a few minor problems.

Last pic is my buddy. His name is Ike, he is a pure bred Golden Retriever.

Questions, comments, suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for reading my thread, tell me what you think.
-Peter

I think he meant golden as in golden retriever. Anyways just a quick update, bought a leaf loader tonight. It's an 8hp billy goat. Runs great, just needs a little bit of elbow grease
(New Hose, oil change, air filter, recoil work) $100 on CL, seemed like a good deal to me. I figured by the time I get it fixed up I'll have b/w 150 and 200 into it, which is still pretty good money wise. I'll post pics when I get it mounted and get the leaf box on this weekend. Sorry for no pics recently, the camera needs new batteries.

I was taking some pics today as a visual aid for my speech I am giving tommorrow about operationg a lawn biz. Let me know if anyone cares to read it, I could post a link or something. Anyways here is just some rig pics and truck pics. I have been busy doing clean-ups and getting ready for snow. I will get some work pics next weekend. You can kind of see in the pics my new back-up lights for plowing. I finally had a minute to put them on, they work great so far. Any questions, coments concerns, constructive criticism, feel free to post. Thanks for looking.

Looking good there! Post that speech, I'd like to read it. I'm doing a presentation at my old high school next week on operating a business at a young age, which should be a blast
