I had the same thing this year. Trailers, underbodies looking bad. Sanded, etc and then I coated them with a black paint made for going over rust, gloss black I beleive and then seconded coated them with a clear coat like a varnish. They claim its good to 10,000 psi / sq inch. So far I like it.

I think I got this online from global industries or so out of florida. I will check tomorrow at shop the name of product though.

And my guys and peers think I am nuts doing this - at least one other like minded person does the same!

Good eye Kajun! Our shop is located in Pelham, NH. Most of our literature/logos etc have been changed over but that is one of the few things that has never been changed. We have MA & NH phone numbers...so it doesn't really matter to us if people think we're from MA or NH...we do plenty of work in both states & we also pay plenty of taxes in both...so it all works out one way or another!

I don't spend much time in the picture department and I didn't go thru every single page but I was impressed.

How long ya been in business? You must cover about every aspect of the lawn care/landscaping world. Do you have an office that people come to you and see your site, nursery stock, or how do you do things in your area?

How many men on payroll? Do you have a designer for landscape? Just alot of questions! Thanks man and enjoy the summer ahead!
Meets...thanks for the kudos!! I appreciate the feedback!

Got the business started in 2001 after high school...that's when I got my first walk behind. I had been mowing lawns in the neighborhood for years before that...but nothing serious. We don't have an office that customers come to & we don't have any nursery stock on hand. We refer customers to a local nursery & will often meet them there for a walk through to go over the nursery stock. We also work with a designer at the nursery on certain projects as needed, we do not have our own designer on-staff. We will have 10-12 on payroll this season.

Best of luck to you this season as well...

I believe it runs around $10/can. That Freightliner took about 10 cans to do. Our trucks with stainless bodies only need the frames done and can be done in about 5 cans.

Might have a job for your mulch blower

I have a job for 64 yrs of brown mulch. Would you travel to Rhode Island ? And how much?

PM if you want.

Mike.
