Good to hear, I just can't take seeing these guys out pulling broke down trailers with no lights or plates, with a minivan and no shirt on. How do they get work?

I like the equipment racks, everything has it's own spot.

Someday I'll have to post pictures of my equipment. My "barn is 50 x 75 and I have to step over equipment to move around. I also have a line of equipment outside that is sitting side by side and is over 400' long. This doesn't include my trailers, 16 at last count. We buy and sell so we have a little more than the average guy. Whenever anyone comes to our place to buy something from our ads the first thing they say is either " are you having an auction sale" or " are you a dealer" I guess we should call ourselves dealers instead of lawn cutters. We make two or three sales every week and make some good numbers from it. It's also easier than cutting.

Still working on it. I'm still in the process of moving in and getting comfortable.

That's a very nice shop!!! I wish I had one that was that clean and tidy.

Our shop is quite a bit larger but it's just an old barn. Big barn doors. Big dirty old benches. No sheetrock, just wood frame and tin barn walls. We got power, plenty of room for our equipment and trailers, parking for all our trucks, etc. But the shop is just old and dirty and greasy. I wish it was as nice and new and clean like yours!

Well done!
