My favorite part about the trailer setup is that it's all self contained...just hook up & go. No need to build a leaf box on a truck, or mount a vac etc.

Did you buy that leaf trailer already fabricated that way or was that modified at your shop? Never seen anything like that sold at trailer dealers.

Allison Automatic
15k miles
8 yard dump body

We went out to Nebraska to get it. It's a big step up from our old truck.

I'll have to get some more pictures together of it.


Here's a picture of us hydroseeding last week (Different truck than I'm describing above)...
What kind of truck is that with the hydroseeder? Is it a flatbed with the seeder mounted on it? Any pics of the hydroseeder and truck setup? How is the durastar dump doing?

Wow. I've been on the forums for a while, just reading people's posts. I rarely post, but after taking hours to read this thread, I'm beyond impressed.

Amazzzzzzzing company Equipment growth and your education by fire. Thank you from a little guy for all the information you have assisted with. It took me almost a week reading it before bed and it is a wealth of knowledge. I stopped this year and only mowed 3 lawns by my house as I work full time and only cut one day a week 22-25 lawns that one day. The expenses got to much with breakdowns, renting parking spots, ins, truck the list goes on. You inspired me to try again next year smaller and more controlled this time to try a tighter route. Hope you had a great year and a better 2015!!!
Again thanks for the advice and motivation!

Liberty...glad to hear you were able to find some value in this thread. I need to work on updating this more often.

Definitely give it another shot next year! Take it slow & easy and you'll get there.

Best of luck!
