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.
I'm deffinetly buying that other truck, I need a back up for plowing, and next year I plan to buy a leaf vac. and make it my leaf truck since it dumps. I'd like to have 30-40 lawns and few apartment complexes so im at 4 days of mowing for next season, and 20-30 driveways for this winter and 5-6 smaller commercial lots for plowing. so far I'm at 15 and I get a call or two a day for plowing and get 99%. I have 2 people who needed a few days to talk to their spouse about having me do snow removal, and they will be getting calls shortly.

New to me trailer 2005 big Tex 16ft. I paid 1500 for it and its in excellent condition, then I sold my old trailer for 800. And there's a picture of my leaf loader i picked up for 1600 with a new motor and new impeller.

Here's my leaf setup for this year, I just throw a large tarp over the top and secure it with 4 bungee cords per side, not the best cover but it's quick on and off

looks like that truck will hold alot of leaves. I would take the toolbox off and mount the leaf loader behind the cab and have the hose coming out to the passenger side. That way you dont always have to put the trailer on that truck.

Ya it does, I haven't loaded it with a leaf Vac yet, but loading by hand it holds a lot. And as far as the toolbox goes its perfect, holds chain saws all my gas cans, small rakes its worth it to keep it and just tow a trailer

I like that truck lettering, the green on white looks good. Did you find that trailer on craigslist? It seems that most used trailers are either really beat up or overpriced, it seems like you got a nice one. I'm down in Mystic-- not too far from you.

Just bought a 1987 Morbark 290 chipper with a 12" chipping capacity. And a 88hp cummins diesel non turbo. Used it today for a little and don't see how I could have gone without one for so long.

Oh forget to add I will be getting my number on the chute asap. It starts in a less than a full crank. And flat out runs awesome.
The number will be huge. It will cover both sides of the chute top to bottom. Not sure how much chipping is left around me from this storm but there will be more storms and more trees will drop. Now here's the fun part guess how much I paid for this chipper? And yes it was on craigslist. This one was right in Tolland only a few towns over
