Hopefully all goes well tomorrow and I can get my lawns done, so I can finish a few clean outs-mulch jobs, before we get hit with a dang hurricane. lol.
What're you gonna do with the ECHO?

That's what pisses me off about theft in this industry. I mean I've had X-mas decorations & alot of other stuff (bicycles, etc) stolen in the past, but with that stuff all that you can say is OH WELL!! But I agree, taking a mans tools makes me sick too!

Royal Edger and Mower on 49th St, just south of Ulmerton. They have another one for $150. Probably going to pick up an edger there too next week after I get my customers to pay up, LOL.
