saw this guy today....and thought it was a little funny, seeing his trimmer, laying there upside down and his cone on it's side, and his toro mower, especially since his name is a cut above. lol

also went to inquire about a 2012 big tex 70pi and the nearest one is in PA, so it looks like I might be waiting about 5-6 weeks for one to be built. I should find out tomorrow.

no trailer for me this year, but with snow coming up on us shortly, I am considering buying another 97 f350 7.3 diesel 4x4. The truck was a cab and chassis dually, one owner, well maintained, includes fisher 9ft minute mount plow which has been sand blasted and repainted, it has 160,000 on it, fair condition, it has a 9ft dumping flat bed that currently doesn't dump due to needing a new motor, which is relatively cheap. (3-400) and 2 new front tires and the truck has the xl package, and needs to have the glowplugs cycled twice to start normally otherwise it cranks for an extra 5 or 6 seconds
anyways I can get the truck for 3600 which I figure is like getting the plow for 2,000 and the truck for 1600, and I can put the plow on my other f350 if something happens to my other truck, and If few things go my way, I should have 5-8 smaller commercial lots for plowing like around $150-300 per push per lot plus another 10-15 driveways, so I figured a back up truck wouldn't be a bad idea....especially at this price. what do you guys think?

can't wait to pick up the other truck, and have it painted white, and get it all lettered up, so I can start my fleet!

I really like the lettering on the truck. Simple, legible and to the point, nothing extra.

If you do not buy that other truck please PM me the guys info....

What is your plans for your business? Run it full time or just a part time thing? Sorry if you already said it.
