DreamScapes Landscaping Mid-Season Update

Here are some updated pictures of the equipment. I tried to e-mail some pictures from my phone to my laptop, but it doesn't seem to want to work.

As most know, I traded the ZTR for the WB, and the WB is working great!

Upcoming Purchases:

7x16 Enclosed Trailer
WRIGHT Stander 48" (I will trade the Lesco)
Toolbox for Truck


Next Year:

Underbody hoist/Dump Insert
Western V-Plow/Salter
Dump Trailer, Possibly Small Compact Tractor


Heres The Pictures

Very nice, as always

Good job to have a plan of where you're going with your business - it's a good idea to have goals like that (honestly, I'd like a nice truck like yours lol - maybe this fall)

We have disagreed on some stuff lately, but one thing I am sure we will both agree on is the need for a compact tractor. I don't recall a single day recently where I have NOT thought about how handy it would be to have a compact tractor for hundreds of various projects.

Nice looking rig, not bad for being 15! The enclosed and the Wright should look pretty sweet!

Another off topic question on the trailer. How stable is your trailer, like if you stand on the front corner of the trailer and bounce up and down, does it flex? I noticed that with the 6x10 carry-on around here.

Looks good Mitch.... good planning as well. How do you like the power on the BR 550? Is it enough or do you wish you had the extra power in the BR 600?

Thanks. The trailer does like to bounce if you jump on a corner, however, I believe it to be the fact that it just has a straight tongue, no A-Frame. I think having the A-Frame would eliminate that problem. But the trailer itself is sturdy, heck, I've overloaded it many times, and its still fighting. Once I get my enclosed, the open will be strictly for misc./landscaping jobs.

The 550 is a mean machine! That thing will blow you away! I have never tried the 600, but I do believe that there isn't much difference.

I looked at the 6x10 and it always seemed very unstable, but I guess it worked for you for all these years so it must be good! I hope to get an enclosed or a shop next year, we'll see what the rest of this year brings us!
