Cleaned the parking lot this AM at a commerical. Tried the BR550 I fixed up as a backup/extra. I like my echo better but it was pretty comparable.








Also got a early start to clearing for the new drive. Will be getting a chipper on monday morning .





A real jungle, not so many trees but tons of ivy,vines and mega sticker bushes. I took the brush blade in first and carved around all the big stuff. I bought a stihl helmet this AM.. Kinda a impulse buy . Well good thing, I yanked a vine and down came a branch and torpedoed me in the head. Still jarred my neck but I have a feeling I would have went to the hospital without the brain bucket. Having the hearing protection on there is great also. Pretty much answered my question on if I wasted 65 bucks.

Turning into a wall of Stihl, I really like Echo stuff but no dealer worth a crap and about 8 Stihl dealers in a 30mi radius.

Got the driveway cleared. I hope I can get some rain before I put the gravel down.

Nice work man! I just had a couple quick questions, Do you do this full time? Do you or have you gone to any classes or schools for Landscaping?

Yeah full time, and no formal schooling just schooled from being on job sites since I was playing in the sand pile on my dads jobs. I was home schooled and Ive worked in most of the trades and enjoy landscaping and carpentry the best.
