How do you have time to do all that maintenance BS?

Do you still have anybody helping you or did you lay them off?

I am done with work etc so its that time now. Spent alot and made nothing the past 2 weeks lol.
Guy that worked for me the last 4 months quit 2 weeks before we were done, so I dunno what happened to him he didn't show up one day it was a bit before thanksgiving. So I finished off the season and my dad will plow Don't think I will need much there I haven't really picked up any snow accounts this year compared to last season, besides its not even going to snow this year haha we have had nothing and there is really nothing in the 15day forecast

I know, I'm going stir crazy waiting for snow. I'm tired of doing shop maintenance and erosion control...I want to plow...or at least salt. Well, maybe not because my work truck sucks, but hey, it'll teach me to plow well really fast.

Doing a lot of silt-fence and silt-sox at new home sites. Well, we do it every week, but I haven't done it until recently.

I'll have an F250...truck's not too bad, but the plow is a little toy Meyer 7.5.' Not having the right plow can really slow you down.

Brad more questions.... what model hedge trimmer do you have and some specs on it if it wouldn't be much trouble. As much as i would like to stay all stihl i looked at a lower end redmax. I also checked out the huskies which have better power ratios.


I feel you guys on winter maintenance, i'm painting about 80% of my lesco, fixed the kill switch, having my friend weld the deck. Probably throwing some parts at the exmark, (caster bearings are smoked, fixing the big rubber flap between the wheels, crease fittings all over the place). I quit target and got a job at Tom Henry Chervolet so the more it snows the more cars i have to clean haha.
