Corsi Auto Body on Niagara Falls Blvd did the work, not gonna discuss the price cuz it was a little messy I got them them paint and some other materials and there was some body work on the truck involved and I also did a lot of the dis-assembly and re-assembly myself. They are one of my customers so they let me be a little more involved in the project than most people I guess.

Heres some more pics of the truck and of a job we recently did.





fit 3 "heavy" yards of mulch in it...not sagging too much either!




These Junipers were a MESS!






That job took almost 10 yards! the pics up there werent even half of it. We were there for 2 days. Lots of trimming in the front. I also have no idea how I EVER survived without 2 trucks on a landscape job or that EZ-Dumper...that thing is worth its weight in gold!

Mulching looks good, and it looks like the truck held the weight darn pretty good.

Well, things are about to get REALLY interesting here...We're in for about 8" of wet, heavy SNOW here. All the leaves are on the trees and as you know, we've been mowing and landscaping for a few weeks now already. About 6 years ago we had the famous "October Storm" where an unexpected heavy wet snow fell in October and we had trees down EVERYWHERE, no power for almost 10 days and it was just a huge mess. Unfortunately, I was not in the landscaping business at the time, rather a prospering graphics design/photography student in college, but anyway this storm here seems eerily like the same thing all over again. SO BRING ON THE STORM CLEANUPS AND BRING IN THE $$$$$ hahaha

We're ready to go, I threw the plows back on yesterday and picked up a brand new Echo CS-400 saw with an 18" bar.

If this turns into another "October Storm" I'm going to be really happy I didn't start any of the landscape jobs this year. I just hope it all stays as rain where I am but highly doubtful.

I put one plow on last night, am I ready to plow NO. I wouldnt mind some storm cleanup tho since that October storm was pretty profitable. (So happy my contracts for plowing ended on 1-Apr-2012) BTW Mike your setups looking nice.
