waht we have here is the air tank, showing the copper lines we made to feed the two auto reel air hoses we have in the workshop. the box is out of my truck that goes in the bed inside the camper shell. it takes up the whole inside and if you look at it, fromt he right is the area i insertmy personal trimmer, middle is the drawers i made(one new one) to house all my tools, oil mix, jack etc. to the left in the cut our area is where my shovles go in front of the backpack blower that fitsi in the cut out. a second backpack goes on top next to my string spool holder. works great to keep organized with all that stuff. this way we rarely have to go back to the shop to fix anything.

I have to agree here ... I wouldn't want all that nice equipment developing rust formations just because i didn't want to spend an extra 5 minutes each day to protect it !!

without being at the shop to look at official numbers i tried to do some memory math, i think around 300+ . plus commerical. dont quote me on that. !!my crew gets the biggest and medium acounts. the other two get the medium to small. i have some lawns that are 150-200k ftsq and then lots in the 30-80k range.

what is different, is four to five days a week or so are spent on mowing, the other two or so is spent on applications, irrigation service, shrub trimming ,renovations, all depending on the time of year. so about 5 days a month are spent spraying(again, memory math) and between the three crews wea re treating about 10 million ftsq. we are about to run the officail figures next week in our meeting so dont get bent out of shape anyone if you figure these numbers and they seem odd. they are close. i think we are very productive for three crew leaders and 4 employees last year, going with 5 this year because of growth.
