Needing some info, please help!!

Looking for someone in the South Carolina/Georgia area that knows something about Southland Landscape Corporation. They have several of their NPR's for sale on craigslist, but i'm yet to get in contact with anyone. They appear to be a large outfit, so just taking a shot to see if anyone is familiar with the company. Or if anyone knows of a decent, used, NPR/w3500 for sale with a open landscape bed. Thanks!!

Link to the ad? Southland is a large company, I believe they are the ones who bought out Tony Bass' Company (founder of Super Lawn Trucks) a while back.

I've called all the listed numbers and no answer, no longer in service, or voice mail is full. I noticed all seem to have dead batteries so I didn't really know what the issue may be. If you know anyone in that area please have them PM me. New to the forum and didn't know where else I may post this to get more traffic. Thanks for the reply!!

Yup, FMI which is the parent company of Southland bought out Tony Bass in 2006.

Try posting in the SC thread.

Like I said, Southland is a HUGE company. These are probably back-up units that have sat for a while, hence all the dead battery's. They look to be in somewhat rough shape by the pics.

Haven't seed any activity on their website or on the web with that company name dated past 2009 or so. Have they merged again?

I couldn't tell ya. Maybe someone from SC could. I'm sure they see them around working.
