Ok what's the cost per load in a pickup truck. I pretty sure it's a yard at least.

After looking at how bad the graphics on my enclosed trailer are starting to look, i called my graphic guy see about doing either a full wrap or 3/4 wrap on it. I believe it may be a better investment than some project boxtruck right now. My 18' enclosed is a huge rolling billboard and i want to take advantage of the space.

Krayz,

Do you have any contacts on the Northshore - Hammond/Slidell area? I have a couple landscaping jobs and need about 5 yards of top soil delivered? Reliable soil doesn't go that far out. Maybe some nurseries too, so I don't have to buy flowers etc here and truck them up to Hammond myself.

Thanks,

Ross

One of my bushhogging contracts starts back up this week. Decided to take the loader off my mahindra to see if it makes a difference in time, being i wont have to move the loader up/down and slow up going around utility boxes/poles. Plus wont have the stress on the loader bouncing up/down.
