you have come a long way buddy! Looks like your doing great! I hope everything with your family has settled down. Just curious, what are you doing to overseed the lawns? Do you have a splice seeder, or are you aerating? Throwing seed ontop of the lawn wont do much, so i doubt thats what your doing.

Lastly, do you have requirements for lights on your trailer in kansas? Ive never seen a set of lights on one of your trailers. I would get a ticket every day if i have a marker light out on my trailer.

What are your plans for winter? How many accounts (com/res) and percentage of each do you have.

On overseeds, I verticut the seed in typically, unless of course the dirt is already turned over and loose. I do have an aerator as well though that gets run sometimes depending on circumstances.

On the trailer, I've got lights on the trailer, they're LED strips on the gate of the trailer. About 1ft long and pretty low profile. But they're there, the local DOT has done nothing but hassle me ever since I got my diesel.

For this winter I'll be working on equipment maintenance, DOT compliance. I do plan to be going to class to get Kansas state certified as a backflow tester as well, so that'll really help the business. The irrigation side of the business is getting bigger by the day it seems. Local guy was getting out of the business, so I ended up taking on his 20 accounts, and have since sold them on much more work. For snow, I got quite a few secured accounts and quite a few more new ones for this season. I'd say I'm probably about 80 percent commercial and 20 residential. When it snow I'm extremely busy for sure.



Got the cab lights on today and finally got my strobes wired up, cab lights are not stock ford lights, very pleased with the way they look on the truck!

Some progress pictures of the install this week. Started it at 7 this morning, and should be done tomorrow about afternoon time. Going pretty smooth, except for the vibratory plow breaking. The rental company is bringing a new one to us first thing in the morning. Which is fine, still things to do without a plow being there. Anyways, hope to have some finished pics up tomorrow or saturday....

yeah me either but theres the fine line between making it your own tastefully and being gaudy. Thats why I try to use OEM parts whenever possible with my trucks like rims, foglights, switches, mirrors, etc. Your truck looks good though I like the blacked out look.
