must blow having 4 sweaty guys in a $40k truck!!! very impressive for one crew to do 150 lawns weekly...must get pretty hectic in the spring when the grass is growing like crazy, rainy days, and everyone calling for new mulch!!

and I agree 100% with you Sean!!! But I personally do try to keep my beliefs and business seperate...up here in the great state of NJ we are full of the politcally correct left-wing liberals

Put on a set of airbags. I put some on my 05 and it makes a huge difference. you can air them down and the ride is normal again. install isn't too bad either.

Nice equipment shown there, I wouldn't have it any other way... Well maybe I would run the diesel in the Ford! Have you had a chance to run the stander ZK yet?
and I'll save the best for last... Keep the faith! Live it everyday! God surely has blessed you and your business.
keep it up! keep some pics coming of the great stripes those machines are putting down come spring.
