ya, and thanks for reviving our thread. i will be taking more pics as we have totally redone one of our trailers(lawn freak, you will know what i mean) and it is awesome. did some upgrading to the fleet this year and just finished up with a new to us one ton dually f350 dump. it is a great find and will be great to the arsenal. got more toys too that i have posted in other threads, but i will post more here soon.

i have still debated starting a picture thread like many of you, but dont know how much i would contribute and if it would be beneficial. i guess i dont have a real reason to do it. one would be a fan base(what i like to call the many guys who take part of particular members pic threads) . but is that really important, not really. friends are though and i have many on here now(you know who you are!).

I know what you mean. I try to maintain a good understanding with my competition locally. This helps keep things under control. My largest competitor and I have a gentlemanís agreement not to head hunt any customers.

it is nice when you can do this, but a new comer here is in head hunting mood. it is pissing me off, as he has got a few by slashing his price to make it more attractive, and as a finance major, he should know that is a bad policy

hopefully you went through all the pages, as on page 7 i think are way better ones of everything.

to answer, we have three zsprays, one of each size. we run three full maint crews(as in the crew leader, and crew, take care of virtually every task on the property from mowing to spraying to irrigation)daily and six days a week for the other two, i run days a week personally . we do not do snow so it is a well deserved vacation of about 3 months.
