I bought an older shindy backpack blower for 50 bucks off my neighbor. Its one of the best blowers I have ever owned. So much power for what it is.

well things are going good for me. i just filed for an llc through the state and the papers are in processing, i got business cards made, and got a bunch of insurance quotes. i'm going to start setting up my accounts for spring because that will be my first year legally. i'm working for an auto parts store, and another lawn company currently plowing. both of them just go to fund my business haha. but my dilemma is that i still need a bigger trailer, blower, trimmers, and i would like to get a bigger truck, reg cab, w/ a plow. should i sell mine and get a work truck, or do i use mine then buy one? im also working on getting an office together, getting quickbooks, and getting invoices together.

Any way you can afford to keep the F150 as a backup if you get a 3/4 or 1 ton?

If not then get an extended/supercab with a long bed. I'm glad I didn't go with a regular cab because it's nice to have extra room in the cab to store things.

it depends on what i get if i could afford to keep the f150.. i've been looking for something older. but i don't want to get something so old that it looks like a junker and gives my company a bad name from the get go.
