looks good andrew, throw some bags on that 450 and you can put both machines on the trailer and no one would notice lol!

quick question, does asplundh ask you to apply any herbicides after mowing? just read through tree services mag article on a company that does ROW mowing and they were talking about how vital it is to follow up mowing and mulching with a broad spectrum spray.

Thanks guys!

Protouch- I do not do anything with herbicides. There are way too many regulations and problems associated with their use in my area that I do not want to get into them.

Going back to that discussion about a dump truck - -

couple o' questions

First, I'm assuming that you have a class A license with your current setup?

Second, why did you decided to go with your current setup instead of a 550 dump or 450/550 service body.

Third, from a business standpoint, how do you justify owning such a high end rig; Its not that I don't get it, I just couldn't justify the price of a rig spec'ed out as yours?

The back seat of the F450 is where most of the bikini area ROW work is done.
