Evins,

Sounds like you've got a pretty nice setup to get yourself started with over there. Just save your money & keep working hard. Read this thread and all the other good ones on lawnsite & you'll learn much more than I can type out in a paragraph or two. Good luck!

I'd actually look at the picture threads by ETWman and Eagle Landscape, theres a couple other guys that have impressive setups that you can learn a lot from.

Hey there...every once in a while I need a little kick in the butt to get back on here! Not too much has been going on here...the snow has been quiet...we had one decent storm so far this year. We've been getting alot of stuff done in the shop for next year. Actively trying to sell our hydroseeder, and actively looking for a bigger machine. Making some changes in our office, trying some new software this year, designing some new websites, working on some marketing ideas/plans we've had for a while. I don't have any great pictures to post right now so here are a few random bark blowing pics from last season...



What's new with you guys? Any new year's resolutions for your businesses...?
