Did some tree work with my buddy, we took down 14 ash trees.







Gotta love the Chevys on the job!


My new Mow-Jack


And my newest acquisition...me neighbor has been trying to sell this McLane edger all summer for like $200. It had an old 3.5hp Briggs on it that leaked oil faster than you could pour it in. I've been eyeballing it all summer because I have always had a soft spot for McLane edgers, and you cant seem to find them around here. So I guess he gave up selling because it was out at the curb the other day for garbage. I picked it up right away, and after looking at it and cleaning all the sludge off the frame from the oil leak, it was actually in immaculate condition, aside from the engine. So I bought a brand new Honda 4hp GX120 today and slapped it on. New edger for me!

Had some issues with my BG-55 and more importantly the servicing dealer. Really rubbed me the wrong way. Picked up a new RedMax HBZ2610 hand blower and a Buyers blower holder for the trailer. Really impressed with the blower. Got it from the same dealer I bought my Stander from and they really take care of me there, so there will be more RedMax stuff coming from there in the future!



Also did some more work on the dump trailer, painted the whole underside, 4 new tires and painted all the rims.




Got some t-shirts for me and the guys, this is the back, the fron just has the logo and phone# on the left chest, real simple.


And finally, my new yard signs

He knows what he's doing, and is really good at it. He ties in up there, usually rappels down his own line to get down.

Does the tractor trailer coming for delivery have an open trailer or closed cargo trailer hauling your new piece?? I was going to say some sort of enclosed trailer but you can find those on any lot.
