Sounds like a great plan. Along with a few more mowers? I love the dump. And your brothers F-250 is so sick!

Thanks! The dump is great to have, and the F-250 is wicked, I love driving it 100%. As for mowers its hard to say, we're pretty well set but I'd like to uniform our equipment some more. I'd like a Hydro Scag walk behind to replace the Red Hawk one day. And maybe a 61 Turf Tiger also. As for right now, we have the equipment to do the work and do it well. So any further purchases depend solely on finding a good deal.

The 205 is new so I haven't used it much but it has all pilot (hand) controls or it can be switched to the foot controls to operate the bucket. I am used to and prefer the foot controls right now because I haven't put time on this. The 205 has Bobtach too which is nice.

It was needed for a large snow contract, so I saw an opportunity. Our dealer we get along well with, and it should many many years of service, in landscaping also.

I was bored out of my mind once again so I got a shot of the Husqvarna handhelds. Our newer 450 saw, and the blower and trimmer. Also the two spreaders used for fert and salt. Also our brushpile that continuously accumulates but never gets burned. In the spring we'll light er' up.

Well I found a bunch of older pictures I thought I'd show off. Here is a customers back yard, where we put in some drainage to go the main drain. A rock retaining wall sort of deal made of armor, and we meshed and mulched all of it.
Some shots of the truck and 6x12, and the shop with the old S185 in it. And some black mulch at a commercial account.

A shot of the 08' S185, it was a single speed so we sold her. The Dodge on play duty with the plow still on. Some stripes at my house from the last season.

Also a big account we have he wanted these sections of forested area to be thinned out. Unfortunately alot of them have poison ivy in them. So I suited and covered up on a hot day and took the string trimmer to it, as well as the blade for bigger stuff. Came out much better!

Also, this was my 1986 Suzuki Samurai with a 1.6 sidekick swap in it, it had a 6 inch Calmini lift and 34" Super Swampers, wicked little track. And towing her back home with my Taco.
