This is my second season and I started late last spring. I'm hoping to get going around that time-middle of April. I just started getting calls in the past week for cleanup estimates. I just picked up a Ventrac 3223 Diesel and can't wait to use it for clean-ups. I got the slip scoop, finish mower and rough cut mower to start with. I'm starting to think that the sweeper attachment may be a good investment this year, it seems like we have a lot of extra sand to sweep up this year! I also have a lot more "part time" help interest for the cleanups this year so I'm looking forward to the big push!

Sounds good - post some pics of that Ventrac if you get a second. Did you get it new or used? Look like good machines, but lots of money for the amount we could use it. Good luck this season!

I purchased the Venrtac used 2010 (118 hrs)! The deal was to good to pass up. A wealthy land owner had it and decided to purchase the larger one so he had the dealer sell the one I got on consignment. I've been eyeballing them for the last year and waiting for a good deal on a used because you're right, they aint cheap. I'm really hoping to add a lot of versatility utilizing the attachments. It should help reduce a lot of trimming/push mower time on hillsides that I cant go on with the Ferris and not to mention running mulch. Honestly, the first time I drove one was last Saturday so I can't vouch from personal experience, but I think I'll make money with it. Good luck with everything.
