Woops - Yeah I meant to say deflectors.

I never have done much for mulching on the properties, I like the vacuumed look - at least in regards to the spring and fall cleanups.

It sounds like you have a good system set up tho for mulching.


More pics, the last pic is my garage just after storing the equipment for winter.

I sure could use another garage during the season for working/storing some extra equipment.

Yeah I need to get on finishing the insulation- and then I was thinking about sheetrocking all of it.

Thanks Green-Man..... It looks big when it's mostly empty. I think it is about 24' x 28'.

In the near future I hope to add on - or build a seperate shop. Alot of people say they wish they would of built there shop bigger, after some time, and use.


Here's a pic of it a little more full of equipment :

One thing to keep in mind when and if you add on of you put a cab on your 1445 you'll need an 8ft or taller door. I have boxer cab on mine and its 87" tall. If it was a 1545 it would be even taller.

Just picked up a new Duramax. My salesman said this is his busiest month of the year -

Because alot of self employed guys are looking for a last minute write-off before Jan 1st.

Crew cab, LTZ, snow plow prep package, 20" wheels, Duramax Diesel/ Alison tranny. :
