A couple of F-150 super crew cabs filled with good employees and a trailer of equipment and remote control in one of my hands and a ice cold bud light in the other.

Yep, that would be about my dream setup!

Don't laugh, but my dream setup would be a chev"astro" van with trimmer racks and a 21" Snapper mower. My overhead would be nice and LOW!

My current set up is a chev 18' box truck, bop duelly , toro grandstand snapper 21 and sthil kombi with backup power head and a lot of attachments, its all nice but expensive as heck to keep it on the road.
