Thanks, I was going for something that would stand out but look good. I have another truck going into paint next week, same theme. I will take before and after pics of it also, my guys call the other truck "green lightning".

It is gearing up to be a record season this year, so hopefully everything holds up!

Yeah, it is a fine line between standing out, but looking good and I think you accomplished it.

That is a good deal. Do you cut grass also? Mind saying what part of Texas you are in? We was looking a used F450 that we was going to put one of those beds on but it got away. You do some pretty big job...good work.

I am in the Austin area. The landscape was "different," as we had to follow a bunch of guide lines to keep the 5 star energy rating.

The system is fed off of rain water harvesting, with a city water back up.

Ditch Witch 650 is a beast. It far exceeds all the specs, and the power is amazing on such a small machine. For carting loads our kanga is faster, and smoother because it has wheels. In every other situation the Ditch Witch is much better.

My only compaint is how bumpy it is on the street/concrete.

When you put drip down what is your spacing? And do you use the 1gph or the lower rates. I guess we will start using netafilm since clean scapes is using it.
