What did you get or will get for Christmas? This is what I got...

Hello everyone!

End of year is always stressful and fun for me. I need to figure out how to balance out my profit and make the best decisions for my business. Most times it ends up being a piece of equipment like a mower, trailer, tractor or something else that I don't get to enjoy it all by myself.

Well, this year I changed it up a little bit. I ordered myself a 2015 F-350 Platinum, long bed, SRW, with EVERY option available including finished wheel wells.

I've had new trucks for the last 8 years (Chevrolet 2500's). I test drove just about every truck out there before ordering this one. Ford just did it for me... One word to describe it is UNBELIEVABLE! Beautifully done interior (I do like squared lines vs. round lines like GM and Dodge) and gorgeous exterior.
440hp and 860 torque, pulled my 26ft enclosed trailer with 10k lbs like there wasn't anything there.

Please share what you all are buying or bought this year for taxes reason or just because!!!

Merry Christmas and a very PROFITABLE and HAPPY New Year!

You need to load the bed of that truck with grass clippings. Pile it high. At least 3 yards. The green grass will go good the deep red. Red & green. Just in time for Christmas.

I pulled a parade float with the same type and color truck furnished by my local Ford dealer. I must say I really did not know that I was pulling my 36' trailer full of people during the parade. You have made a wise investment and I am happy for you.
