I wish you luck but I would have waited to get alot more customers before plunging that far into debt. Your overhead to income has got to be high. I have seen a bunch of guys do the same thing only to regret it. Slow steady growth and low overhead are the keys to success. I'm not trying to rain on your parade. I want everyone to succeed in this business. Good luck.

The F150 was alot more than what you paid, 36 out the door. The Boss is the lighter duty plow called a Sport Duty. It is about 150 pound lighter than the standard duty and is made for 1/2 tons.

I got a very good deal with mine its a 4.6 4x4 extended cab power windows 6spd tranny. My dad works for BGE and they get a very good discount. So I put the truck in my name instead of the company name. I also get life time engine and tranny

You plan on putting all the bagged grass in the back of your truck? It'll fill up fast with the shorter bed.

Nice equipment. Good luck.
