Love the business and love the equipment and good luck to you, but I would avoid rolling lawns by all means if you want healthy lawns.

Lawn rolling is very popular here. I get asked every year, and 3 calls already this week and the weather hasn't even broke yet. Every Johnny homeowner in town with a riding mower has a lawn roller behind it in spring. My neighbor rolls his for weeks, he is nuts though, and also cuts his lawn 3-4 times a week whether it needs it or not.

I met a guy who does rolling and said his phone rings off the hook and all he does is have a sign in his front yard that advertises it. Ive explained to people that I don't roll cause Id need not only the roller but the aerater and their response is, we just want it rolled nevermind the aerating. Most don't know or care about soil compaction or aerating. They want their damn lawn rolled

I do not know anything about lawn rolling but I would say that his properties look pretty awesome so he must be doing something right.

I found the Wright neon sign on ebay a few years ago. A dealer in Indiana was selling some stuff.

Tell me more about your CAM trailer. My trailer dealer sells them and I was just in there, last week, inquiring. I know they can do custom work. Is that trailer custom or are the sideboards and ramp something you did? Is the ramp hinged at the top of the sideboards, to allow debris to pass under when dumping? What length is that?
CAM Dump Trailer is 16ft long. It has the extended sides on it from the dealer. The gate has pins on the top and bottom. This way we can undo the top pins to use it as a ramp, or undo the bottom pins and have it dump. I'll get some more pictures of it up once we get it out for the year. We ordered it like that, I think our dealer actually executes the options, such as the gate and sides.
