Nice trailer, the aluminum wheels look good. I like the color scheme too. Very nice looking trailer. One question though, whats so special about a tire being filled with nitrogen? I've never heard of it.

i had the trailer ordered with that color scheme before we were even thinking about getting this new superduty, it just so happend that it matches perfectly, so i think the truck was meant to be!

nitrogen filled tires hold psi better b/c nitrogen molecules are larger and they dont seep as quickly. and also it is more stable so the nitrogen maintains a psi over a greater range of temperatures and also during operation they dont heat up as much. they just came that way, i didnt know thats what they use. the shop that i take my truck to uses nitrogen as well. who knows, i always used the compressor at my house.

well, I've gotten around to uploading some more pictures. I usually do this in batches so I'll put up what ive taken in the last few weeks.

Just did this one today. This is my old high school, graduated in 2005 and my brother is now a senior. They district hasnt been able to pass a levy since late 06 and there is talk about shutting down a few of the schools. So they are trying to spruce up the look to get people more enthusiastic about the district b/c it really is a shame how so many programs and classes have been cut from the curriculum.

Anyways, we were asked to provide the tools, materials and coordination to plant some skyrocketing junipers, weeping cherries and boxwoods, install mulch and some other stuff.

We were pretty much loaded for bear and rolled heavy with the equipment not knowing what we would come across. In all it was 17 junipers, 25 boxwoods a few cherries, 12 yards of mulch, 1 yard of technagro compost for the plantings, another yard of topsoil just because and some starter fert.

I used a 24" bit for the juniper and cherry plantings and since the boxwoods were only 2gal. those were done by hand. They loaded up the saturday detention kids on this day so they could come help out lol, in all there were prolly 50 kids doing random things, sometimes helping, sometimes sitting, mostly getting in the way. Kids these days... I am not profiting from this just covering my costs and helping out my old school. In return they are putting our name on the marquee and featuring us in several print sources.


Whoever installed the block wall placed it on the dirt with no base, so we pulled it out and just deepedged the beds.





Tree rings:











My dad really kept the kids in line lol:



Starting to come along, though they loaded up the edges with mulch and by the end you could barely tell i edged at all:












The 06 rolled with the enclosed that had all the handtools, wheelbarrows, tiller, edger, etc...


The 09 pulled the equipment trailer with the rc100, pallet forks, gp bucket, and 24" auger.

small 5 yard mulch job. The edging was a nightmare with all the tree roots.

quick tree removal, had a windstorm that knocked down this apple/pear?? tree, we cut it up and pulled the stump. Gave the ms460 & ms290 a chance to run through some easy wood for a change as we mostly take oak & maple for firewood supply.

you should have seen this place before, completely neglected, irrigation heads buried under the driveway, washing out the soil & gravel. If you take a shovel handle and tap the driveway, you can hear the hollow spots underneath.

She is the reason i will not take indian customers anymore. I dropped her after this job. We had been mowing this account for 2 yrs, right after the home was built. Original contractor put the seed down and it snowed later that week, this came from her mouth, but the following year, we were to blame for all the bare spots, which were caused by all the stone in the yard not letting the grass grow lol. No topsoil was brought in and the seed was spread directly over the construction debris. Everything was always our fault. The property was always a mess, crap in the beds and everything. Very cheap family, barely convinced them they needed this renovation.

The edger would shut off so often b/c it would bind on all the rock it would catch, i think i pulled a full wheelbarrow of just rocks that were pulled up from edging. The grade on the one side of the house is awful, no tiering to keep the dirt from washing away and those plants had about 2/3 of the root ball exposed b/c of the erosion.

Everything looks good man. How do you like your older Chevy dump? I'm kinda drawn to that over the Fords, I don't know why though. Maybe it's the toolboxes in front of the dump. Hope you have a good season.
