I am working 6 days a week right now. I have been lucking into extra jobs every friday/saturday for the past month or more.

I spread 12 yards of river rock mulch today and a couple of hours yesterday. The HO had it delivered and got about 4 cubic feet spread and called for back up.

I got it done in 7 hours total with spraying round up in the other beds (yes I am licensed) and blowing everything down.

I will rearrange my schedule to make a lunch if it is a place I can get to.

Brian

Hey guys, does anybody run the 6.4 powerstroke? I have the oppritunity to get a deal on an 08 F-350. I'm mainly concerned about the fuel economy towing a 16ft landscape trailer.

My wife is the director of an ambulance service here in Tampa. They have a fleet of Ford 6.4's. They have a lot of turbo and egr problems, spend more time at Bill Currie than on the road.

I havent had many problems. It was a new engine in 08 though. The fuel economy isnt as great as other deisels, but it has a ton of power. I only get about 10mpg pulling about the same as you have.

I've found that the nicer neighborhoods around here pay less? Bigger yards, more to do, but they aren't willing to pay a decent price for anything because a lot of people feel privileged to work for them so they will lower their prices.

I am enjoying all this rain we are having right now! My lungs can finally rest from the dust. Hopefully my newly installed Bahia lawn will actually need cutting tomorrow.

I guess having the belt drive mower in this business was a bad decision. Belts don't work so good in the rain.
