Rebuilding the biz after the tornado

Well, june 5th or 6th my bros house, our shop, trucks, mowers, equip, EVERYTHING was destroyed by a tornado in NW Ohio... He lived in millbury....

Heres the thread with a few pics
http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=320778

Well we settles with the red truck, trailer, a few mowers, and misc stuff... We got screwed, but whatever... Every1 is alive, so its all good...

So far we have got
  • Used Metro 32" 12.5hp Kawi
  • NEW BR 550
  • NEW FS 90R
  • NEW KM 90R
  • NEW 16' Landscape Trailer
  • NEW Exmark 60" Laser Z (waiting for delivery)

We are still truck shopping, and trying to decide between a dump, and a pickup... And we still wanna get trailer racks, basket, push, and possibly a bagger for our new mower, the loaner they gave us has one, and its SWEET!

We still gotta do some repairs to our 48" Metro that went thru the tornado...

I'm glad everyone is ok, that equipment can be easily replaced, but live can't.

I'll be praying for all you guys hit by these tornadoes, I'm sure it's hard loosing everything and trying to rebuild.

On another note, I can tell you like the bagger, does it clog much or does the belt driven fan prevent most of that. My grandpa has a similar bagger on his cub cadet riding mower, but it doesn't have a fan and ends up clogging sometimes.
