did 6 clean ups this weekend and I absolutely killed it this week, the jrco tine rake is awesome, excellent way to really increase profits, especially for the little investment. if I can keep this pace up until the end of the month things will be looking better then ever.

should be putting a deposit on a 7x14 dump trailer tomorrow as long as its in stock at bri mar, then its off to get stripped of their lettering and have my own company lettering on it, then its off to powder coating to have the wheels done gloss black to match the trailer. picked up 2 new lawn accounts over the weekend, and im still healing from the shock wave therapy for the kidney stone i've had for 2 weeks which really slowed me down. got a 20 yard mulch job im doing tuesday i'll try to grab pictures of that, i have a tree job i'm waiting to hear back on and that's about it....i usually get busy in may and june, hopefully july will be a busy month this year too. and i have to go back to the doctors for more x-rays and then back to hospital to have them remove the stint from my kidney, not looking forward to that.

here's my spring clean up setup



i just took the sides off because they were only useful during spring clean ups, and those are done now, plus i should have a dump trailer in about a week if things go my way once again, not too mention 0% for 6 months is pretty attractive, plus why spend my money if someone else will let me use there's for next to nothing.

dump trailer.





all stock....literally picked it up today around 3:30 tomorrow it will be loaded about 6 ft high with brush and logs. thankfully i don't have to unload it or even watch anyone helping me unload it. all decals are getting removed thursday, and my company name and number and website are going on the trailer in 3 spots name and number on left and right side, and the website on left and right side, and name on one of the doors then this weekend some 4 foot high sides will be built, out of pressure treated lumber of course, then later down the road i will have large sheets of aluminum riveted to the sides and use that for advertising as well...

some tree's i cut down today.









there's two tie down underneath the last 3-4' of brush and there's two bigger tie downs on top, one up front and one towards the back. that's the 1st and 2nd tree on there. 3 hours into it so far, and i have a second trip to make to load up the rest of the brush, which i'll do on my own....not bad for about a half day of work.

dump trailer lettered up....



after i loaded the second load of brush from the back 2 trees, the customer asked what it would cost to clean out the woods line, so i gave her a price, it worked for her, and this is the load i took out from that.



tomorrow, i have to look at wood removal job, the guy thinks its about a tri axle of logs all cut down to 16" but i'll see tomorrow morning

If your putting sides on it use 2x12 for sides. First time I used mine I had plywood and it lasted for one job before I went to the heavier sides. They have been on the trailer for 3 years. And still looking good

If you can stack some of these tree jobs I would look at a weekly or monthly chipper rental.

Trailer looks great, classy. I need one soon. Baby steps to the roll off truck
