The mower picture reminders me of a Drill Intsructor screaming "Dress right, Dress"

You must have a high turn over of material to need that many different bins or do you seperate your wastes ie. Branches, lawn clippings, fill, etc, etc.

Landscraper,
Nice set up and machines. Do you use the 3 different type (Brands) of mowers for distinctly different mowing or lawn types?

I like to have all the materials needed for jobs, at the shop. It cuts down on time wasted going to another material yard and I also get the material at a better price, getting it in bulk. I also can dump back into the bins any material left over.

All of my waste goes into a compost pile. The branches are chipped and thrown into the pile as well.

Here is the compost generated in one year:

A 16hp Lesco leaf loader, mounted on each truck used for each cutting crew.

Each property is different. Each trailer will carry 1 Hustler 60" SuperZ, 1 Hustler 54" Z4, 1 Stander 52", 1 Stander 32", and a 21" mower. Each crew also has an Encore walk on reserve, to switch out when they are doing any steep hills , on a given day.

I have been in the business for many years and have tried just about every mower out there. I have found the Hustler to have the best riders, Wright has the best standers, and Encores the best hydro walk behinds(for the money).
