yea i somehow messed that all up. I went way high and figured 5 hours to broadcast 2 acres, then 13.5 man hours using a straw blower, which again I think is way high. Which comes out to about 8 bales of straw an hour, I can do 4 an hour by hand. Plus a fee for rounding up that much material and I'd be making a good amount off the savings from the seed/straw.

Theres no grade work at all, just spread the seed, I have a drag chain that i'll be using an atv to pull and rake in the seed, then blow in the straw and cash the check.

Well, a quick note here. I have only cut about 1/4 of my properties here this week. Doing some hedge trimming and brush cleanup and that is it. Time to go to a Ox Roast that I help out at. Send some rain this way anybody that gets it will ya.


Thanks,

JP

We got a lil bit of rain here this morning. I hope it starts again. Everything is so dry, I had to skip 8 places last week, thats the most all year. And going by a few places, it looks like nothing really needs it this week. I have a pretty big mulch job to finish and picked up a patio install though.

Today looks like an easy maintenance day though

Pull behind or walk behind? I might have an hydraulic pull behind for sale. I need to get it back from a friend that borrowed it first though.
