Oh just maybe......









1999 Chevy K2500. has 109k miles on it, has the big block 454 engine, and is in exceptionally good shape rust wise for an OBS Chevy. Gonna need tires before winter and a couple other little odds and ends (like a plow) but overall its pretty much good to go. I bought it mainly to use in the winter for plowing, but I'm sure it will get used for landscaping as well.

Are you just trying to keep your "nice" truck off the road? Or will it soon fill a need for more work?

How are those 3 lawns treating you?

Like I said, its main purpose is going to be for plowing right now. I was plowing about as much as I could by myself last year, and I am anticipating getting a LOT more plowing, so the guy I have working for me now also has a decent amount of experience plowing and will carry over with me into the winter. By next spring, I will be looking for a dump insert for this truck. But for now, I'm gonna use it for mowing just to drive it. Although I do make a religious habit out of cleaning my truck inside and out EVERY friday afternoon after I'm done mowing, it does suck some days to come home and shower and get all cleaned up and get back into a truck full of grass and dirt to go run errands.

Those lawns are great, I really love cutting them. They're nice and easy and its nice that the customer appreciate my attention to detail and aren't just like "cut the grass so I dont have to" haha if you have any more you want to get rid of, send 'em over! your new truck looks sharp btw

Nice looking older Chevy. I really like those old body styles. Hope it works out well for you.

Thanks for the compliments! I already ordered a new set of center caps for it, the black ones are driving me nuts. Hopefully it'll be on the road in the next few days. Then will come the plow and I'll have to start putting obnoxious lights on it.....

Haha no. I was across the street delivering sod to my cousins house. I had the silver dodge v10. I was also pulling some bushes out the day before with my other truck. I don't normally do any work in that area, but I was doing him a favor. I was going to stop and say I, but I didn't see you around as I was leaving.
