My Rig For 08..

Here is my maintenance rig. Me and my employee cut about 80-100 residential lawns and 2 commercial accounts a week. My next large purchase will be a F-450 or an 4500 diesel dump truck. Tell me what ya'll think. I also use a hedge trimmer and another edger, stihl model.

Love the trailer, cutting that many accounts why not think of a 350 and getting a rider?

I'm going 450 dump.

ZTR would be nice but 99% that I cut isn't that large...so maybe next year I land some larger in size accounts...but I love a lot of little checks rolling in.

maybe its just the way the truck and trailer are parked but CRAP, that rear gate looks awful steep! Nice setup by the way.

Yeah, I haven't seen too many LCO's with 3 WB's and no ZTR ... that is a little unusual !! But nice rig and equipment.

What's so unusual?..

I cut resi's, the 48" does most front yards, 36" does most gated backs, 32" does the gated backs the 36 or 48 can't get into, the 21" hardly gets used and goes into the very few gates a 32" won't fit...

make any sense?...well it works well for me and my helper.

I've noticed that we can cut lawns much faster if I handle the front, he handles the back, and whoever is done first does what the other isn't...pretty easy, real efficent for us.
