Yeah we are located in akron, ohio aka northeast ohio so we start in southern ohio in Cincinnati and worl our way north to columbus then by april we are back in akron we have over 2000 yards to do in columbus and cincinnati before we put a single yard in akron. It exstense our season by over a month so its nice plus the Finn factory is located in cincinnati so incase any problems we are right there.
Are you still able to go out and work or are you more in the office and doing estimates? If you still are what's your favorite thing to do out in the field?
They are callin for snow here tonight so we will see

I like to load on-site but we don't always have enough equipment to do it. Often our skid steer is out on another job so we can't tie it up for the day loading mulch. We leave our loader at our yard to load from our mulch piles. We could really use another skid steer.

I still go out & work, mostly doing irrigation work, pulling pipe & troubleshooting systems. I also do a decent amount of hydroseeding.

Sounds like you guys have quite an impressive mulch schedule...

Proturf,
That works yeah being able to have another loader would be nice but I know you have those wheel loaders, so its hard to justify.
That's good your still able to get out and work.
Yeah the mulch schedule gets crazy but because its such a short season for mulch it self we have to exstended it as much as possible.
You guys got any snow in the forcast we just got an inch or so so we will be going out later tonight

jrmikka...we currently do not have enough hydroseeding work to justify that new machine, but that is part of our business plan, to increase that portion of the business significantly & make it worth the investment. I'm glad to hear you enjoy the thread.

We have a few different diesels in our trucks. My favorite would have to be the Duramax 6.6L diesel. Plenty of reliable power & relatively quiet. I've never had a Cummins in a truck. We just blew up a 5.9 Cummins in our loader a few weeks ago.

We don't have an official plan on the lettering yet, but i have a few ideas in my head. We are planning on lettering the hell outta that thing...I look at it & see a GIANT BILLBOARD. I can't wait to get it done up. I will post some pics when it's all done...probably not for about a month though.

GIANT BILLBOARD is what I was thinking. We have a E350 box truck. My wife calls it a rolling billboard.

1"-2" of snow tonight. I agree with you. Wish it was a foot of snow. 1-2 is a waste of time for us.
