They actually went down because of the 2011's they had coming in and they need the room for them so they had to get the 10's out of there.
i wish i would have caught that deal. Thinking about putting a leaf box on my 6ft bed dodge 1500 and dreading it sooo much. I dont want to ruin the truck with a big ugly box. I got a pretty sweet set up for the leaf loader though that i am excited about. And we sanded and snad blasted the exmark lazer z xs mower deck tonight from a lot of paint chips and flaking off if it. Which it wasnt a big deal but i am a freak about my equipment in new condition. I take care of everything like a baby.

Primed and welds tonight. And i will wet sand and paint tomorrow night. I forgot to take pic's of before and after but the mower looks pretty damn funny without a deck on it!

They way I look at it, if YOU hire a company like that to come deliver it, and they look like crap. I think it reflects back on us because WE hired these guys. But anyways, nice work.
good point about the professionalism, and i am definitly kickin in advertizing full gear. I have 6000 fliers i am handing out this saturday with 5 of freshman highschoo guys that run cross country. I am hoping to get them all out in one day and maybe order more if i like the turn out.

What college are you going to and what did you come out with?

The only part is, now i have to build a box for it and i don't know where to put the loader because i didn't get the tailgate bracket. I think I'm going to mount it onto the front corner of my trailer
That sounds a lot like me, my neighbors hate me because our dog barks to much ??!!?! wtf !. I'm still waiting if I want to get another trailer to set the loader on, I was originally putting the loader on the tong of my trailer but It may not work.

I'm still undecided on where I'm going for college. Congrats on your loader too, My neighbor to the north of my don't really care for me. Because I've always got my trailer out front and always doing something in the yard when I get the chance. What really bugs them is when I'm working on my equipment at night lol.

So give or take a few bucks it was right around 650. Is that a lot or something for you? those are the prices for sod up here. If i got 250 yards the price drops from 2.5 to 1.9
I think on the sod you mean by the sq ft??? I bought 1000sq ft last week for $250 if that give you an idea so about .25 a sq ft

Don't put a leave box on the 1500....its a TON of weight between leaves, loader an trailer full of mowers. Also raking all that out would SUCK!

it is measured differently up here. it was a little under 2300 sq/ft. 190 "yards" that what the dealer called them. Each piece is 2'x 6' rolls. So 12 sq/ft each
