Hey guys, Young Pup from plowsite here. What a wonderful day today. Nice, warm and sunny. I even think I got a sunburn on my face. lol Got the mowers, backpacks, and rolling blower fired up today. Need to work on the handheld and try to start the trimmers. Had the trimmers out of sight so I forgot about them All blades are sharp. Still need to do oil changes and general maintenance on them though.

Even went ahead and cleanup up the yard. I have 6 spring cleanups lined up as of right now. Going to do those at the end of the month unless the phone starts ringing for them then I will start asap. Maybe snow flurries on the weekend here.

On my letters that I sent out I had April 2nd as the start date. It all depends on how fast everything turns. I believe last year we did about half of the yards the first week of April and the second week was full bore on everything.

Whats up everybody??? Got my trailer and all my goodies today!!!! Painted the trailer up real nice black, picked up my new Scag belt wb with that new fenangled Velocity deck. And got an Echo PB 620 backpack. I am happier than Rosie O'Donnel at the Ricky Martin concert!!! So of course with me getting new toys, I had to use them. Went to my dad's house and cleaned his yard up. The mower sucked the leaves up with no problem at all. I gotta get some pics soon of the truck and trailer!! Felt so nice to be able to wear a t-shirt and shorts outside today. I dont even want to think about the snow they are talking about this weekend As far as me starting to go out and get spring clean-ups going, end of March begining of April??? We shall see!!

Hey guys.

I put out some doorhangers today, think its too early with the weekend coming up? I only put out 100 or so to highend customers.

I made that bid today. I felt very confident with my bid and I feel that they might accept it too. Which then would be my first customer. Excited!

Anybody know where I can look into getting a 12" trailer? Smith trailers and equipment. Anybody ever dealt with them? What price do you think I can figure on paying. I went to a dealer few weeks ago and he said about $1200 I believe.
