The last pic is in my driveway tonight, trying to squeeze in a couple at my house... Don't worry-no Miller Lite on the job.

Some neighborhood beds I maintain... and a baby rabbit nest I had to relocate that was in the middle of an annual bed. Lucky I found it before I started tilling. That would have been ugly to say the least.

A little 'Nellie Stevens' Holly screen today and a few nandina. And bed prep- wish I had a true before pic, this area was a disaster. It was full of ivy, leaves, honeysuckle and old small stumps. There was a wire fence too and I had to re-work the drain.The soil was barely workable but decent. Can't tell from the pics but the grade worked out really nice. They are stepped perfectly. Also tilled and prepped a large area in the backyard. Had to pull a major Austin Powers to get the truck like that to dump. Wasn't about to wheelbarrow anything today and a stone contractor was borrowing my Dingo.

Long story on this job....extremely nice people but they want to buy all the materials. That's all I'll say. Wink wink.

Thanks Jpeg... Using Stihl HS 81 T's. Thinking about buying the HS 45's to give my arms a break on the smaller stuff. It's kinda more homeowner grade but I'm sure it will work fine.

Anyone have the 45?

I have had a 45 for probably 6 years or longer and never had a problem except the handle breaking. I bought the 81's this winter and they have great power but will wear your ass out.
