How many trucks do you guys run?

Do they all have plows?

We are running 14 at this time. All but 2 of them have plows. The 1 ton dump with the chipper box and the spray truck do not have plows.

Very Impressive!

If I may ask, how many crews are strictly for maintenance or installs?

In terms of mowing, how many accounts are you guys knocking out each week.

Last thing, what is your staff like number wise (this could be anything from office secretaries to crew members)

Thanks a lot! Feel free to PM me if you would rather.

Thanks. Here is the next one for paint. I picked this one up on eBay back in December for $750. It is an 86 with no rust and original paint.

Dude, HOW THE HELL DO YOU GET THESE DEALS?!?! I'm looking into a 1 or 1 1/2-ton dump over the winter.
