So it's going into the shop to remount the spare tire in the A-frame of the trailer rather than on the side of the trailer like it was from the factory.
Sean- mulch sales are up this time from last year and we're getting a lot of new interest from some big (to us) buyers. It's still relatively early in the game but I did spend all day Saturday grinding up about 1000 yds of red mulch (500 yds of which are already sold to one buyer). The only other directions we're going right now are into some more bog rebuilding/expansion work and some trucking. And it's fine about this weekend- I just got back from a family gathering in CT anyway.

2brothers- right now I have a guy with a big lowbed who hauls our equipment around for us.

Tom- I'm working on RT 28 on Cape Cod that goes from Bourne through Falmouth MA.

I'd make the dealership pay for the damage to the car, and I'd also contact my lawyer to discuss if this is a legal issue you need to be worried about because they may try to claim that it was negligence on your end. I use to work for a lawyer and you wouldent beleive the bs cases..

Thanks Icex- but we are already far ahead of the whole issue. This will not be coming back to bite us in the butt. This was a Towmaster issue plain and simple.

We're getting ready for another big marketing push and since we had the 160 in the yard for the first time since we bought it last November, we decided to do a picture shoot.

And the next day after the shoot, the 160 was back at work with a bucket for the first time since we bought the machine 400 hrs ago.
