Thanks man, sucks your parents won't let you get a bigger truck, I love mine. My parents didn't mind. That F150 sounds good, but I don't know about the plow. That is alot of weight for a half ton. I believe the 810 weighs like 1100 lbs, my 2500hd squats a decent amount, I can't imagine a half ton. I would keep looking, a heavy plow like the 810 would destroy a half-ton. I don't know about another mower. I will definately be adding one next year, not sure which one. I really need something with a good collection system. I am considering a walker. Or I might add a stander(grantstand or wright) and get a trac vac for my wb. Not sure, i'll have to demo some machines in the spring. I would definately demo a few machines if I were you though.

Thanks man, I like your set-up too. I'm loving this nice weather, been getting a lot done. Have you finished leaves, I'm close to done. I'll post a link to the speech. Good luck on your presentation, I would love to do that.

Thanks, I like the echo's, but I might add some stihls to the set-up. As far as blowers go, I like the stihls, but for trimmers/edgers, I like the echos. My dealer carries both, which is nice. You should post some pics of your truck and rig some time.

Here is the speech for anyone who wants to read it. I only have five mintues so I was limited with what I could cover. I actually took a lot of info from this site, especially Pro Cut's thread on how to fail in the lawn business. Don't worry, I cited sources so I won't get into any trouble for plagiarism. Let me know what you think. THanks.

Nice, how many accts?? What mileage do you get towing, I'm thinking of a 16 foot tandem, I am wondering how bad my mileage will be affected, I'm guessing not very much but I'm not sure.

Well yea,
i think it's blizzards half ton plow on there, the guy that's selling it(dfdsuperduty on plowsite) looks like a good deal he's also throwing in a pallet of ice melt and a buyers tailgate spreader.
