i had a whole post on that titled "scag vs bobcat my take". short end of it, it comes down to money, love them both, bobcat is much cheaper.

were you the one who put the offer in it contingent on the home business permit? we got it for 430 and put more than we thought into it. roof, windows, painted outside/insinde, floors, carpets, countertops, appliances. still need doors, garage doors, landscaping....and bathrooms done. if it snows we're doing a bath soon. what did you think of the place?

No we never put in a offer, with its location and town its in, I wonder who would worry about a home biz permit.. I loved the location and getting rid of my shop rent would have been great!!! But the #'s for doing the inside did not work for us considering it was already at the top of our budget.. I know nothing at all when it come to houses and have no intrest in learning.. My old lady knew i would hide in the shop for the next 20 years...lol.... Congrats on the new place it sure is a sweet set up!!!

I've looked at this thread before and really like your set up there. What are your plans with the OBS 350? I've got a 96 powerstroke with a 10' dump that carries my salter, getting a plow this winter hopefully if the money is there, great old trucks.

we unoffically had 2 crews going this year, the 2nd wasnt really full bore. im hoping next year ill be closer to that and i really dont want my 08' superduty to get all beat up from mowing, you know with like big dents in the bed and bumper and stuff.......damn, that already happened. as we grow the obs f350 truck will serve the 2nd mowing crew, ill have the f550 for mulch, hedges, cleanups, tractor work, the other p/u will work the first mowing crew, and the 08' can look like crap in the driveway with rusting dents. it is really my personal truck and i dont want grass and crap in it every weekend when im using it.

im also planning on using it as a 3rd plow truck, since we're booked up with 100 driveways now and need it to take on more work. it needs to be converted. it an original mm1 with a slow hydrolic pump off the engine. i want to convert it to electric/hydrolic. it also has an exaughst manifold leak, need to bleed the new brakes, and clean the connections on the dump. it sat around for the last 5 years. it was cheap and it was white so i was all over it. its heading into the shop soon so i can start fixing her up
