take the GVWR of your truck and add the GVWR of your trailer to it, the total is your GCWR. that is what the sticker on your truck needs to be. They start at 6000# and go up by 4000# for each sticker. you must be stickeed forno less than the GCWR.

example: truck GVWR(from on door jam) 8800# trailer GVWR of 12,000 GVWR
GCWR= 20,800 sticker on your truck plate would be for 22K.

Hey, I'm new to the board. Operating out of Avon, Lorain County. I'm not a landscaper, I just make mulch and topsoil. Was wondering where you guys get your mulch from and for how much per yd...?

Single shred is $13, double $18, died (red black brown) $24 per yard. They give me I think a dollar off per yard if I get 20 in a day too. This is a local supplier.

Huh. I have a real nice triple shred dyed black or brown. I generally charge a landscaper $25 a yd. But, I think I lose a lot of guys b/c of the price...I'm considering doing a double and charging less. You guys all ready for the spring? I'm sick of all this snow.

Well, got out amongst them today. I am very sore right now and can't wait till the morning when I can't move. Started working on trimming some hedges way back. I underestimated how far out they were over the side walk. When I am done you can walk three wide on it. lol Looks like rain on Tuesday then be back out on Wednesday to hopefully finish them up.
