No offense brother! I understand your concern like you have no idea my friend...As I said earlier, I will provide pics of trailer/bucket truck and gear in a couple days. The trailer is a tandem axel 6.5'(I think) x 12 or 15'. It is a loaner until I get some $$$ under my belt. The bucket is a white 1 ton bucket van. I am going out to install the pintle hitch to it now because I have a restoration to do tomorrow and I will need to take Becky (the big tractor) the dozer blade, roller and dump cart plus a load of dirt to the job.

keep it up

I love to see people like this. It reminds me of when I started. I had a 6x10 trailer, an echo weedeater, a four cylinder sonoma, and a agway tractor that i paid 50 buck for. Now I am running two three man mowing crews and a four man landscaping crew four years later. Sure you have a headache for the first couple of years but at least you didnt start in debt or have someone else buy it for you. Keep it up!!!!!!!!!!! This is what america was built on. People that busted there a@@es for something that they really believed in and truly wanted to work.
