As for hand-helds whoever makes the dollars make sense is who's making it on my trailer. I have a fsx110 & fs250 weedeaters and a br350 blower that are 9 years old and haven't had to have them in the shop for any reason. Changed the air filter as needed, replaced a primer bulb and keep shafts greased. Figured that was $250 - $350 each that I have made back and then some with that long of a life. Now have a fc95 edger, br600 blower that make the trek out with us and love them too.



Thanks! Boxes were like $210 a piece. 36" long boxes. Was all I could fit with the crossover already there.



Did you ever send a PM? I can't find where I can send PM. Didn't know if I can receive them or not.
You do have a point on the 4' sides, that didn't even cross my mind.
I bring that up about stihl cause I just had to chunk a little over one year old 600 mag cause it dropped a valve, actually I traded it to someone for some other equip, but still highly disappointing.
I will send a PM, just haven't had time.
How many lawns do you have?

That's crazy with th 600. Didn't know stihl made something that could be totaled. With it being just a year old, wasn't it in warranty? Who was your dealer?

We currently maintain 10 (quarter to 2 acre yards) and 1 - 10 unit Townhome development. And 1 - 10 acre church campus. That mixed with an average of a $5,000 - $8,000sprinkler system or landscape install per week, I am really pleased with where we are as a brand new company. And really tired. Myself, one full time employee and 2 part time employees. We stay very busy.

I might add that I have very good help, but these first few systems have been tough, just having to teach my help as we go. However, my full time is an electrician so that is very handy when it comes to troubleshooting, wiring and dropping plugs for controllers.

Drainage Ditch. Repair Wash.

Whipped through this one last friday. Myself and 1 hand. After pictures were taken Tuesday on our maintenance route. Had to stop back by and check over where the pile was where I drove the tractor for any stray rocks. Didn't want a hay-cutter finding them. Before and After. Filled and compacted washes, laid fabric and placed rock on top of that.

Few more pictures

1. A yard we perform the mowing maintenance soon to be weed, feed & pest as well. 2 Plan for an upcoming job (was going to post landscape sheet as well, but didn't have luck getting the picture to upload.) 3 & 4. A job we will be starting monday (unless we get delayed by rain tomorrow and Friday). This was installed this past spring. No compost and topsoil. Customer was bid weed barrier. No weed barrier. Also she was bid azaleas. No azaleas and only about 1/2 the amount of plants originally discussed. (Drawings are great. No confusion on plant material etc.)The guys stone work looks pretty good though. 5. St. Augustine decline. Green grass in the middle of the damage is zoysia. (Decline is some "not fun" news to deliver to a homeowner.
