Well our new production manager who was my foreman last year made the list of stuff he thought our branch needed and then our branch manager approves it. He just gave me two of the three new blowers we got because he knows I take care of the equipment.

Also the trimmers I'm getting aren't new they are about two years old, only the stick edger attachment is new. It's a straight shaft one. In April though when we get our new mowers and I'm getting a new laser z 72" with the ultra vac, and possibly a new 52" vantage.

Yup ill be driving a 2012 f350 flex fuel/ gas pick up truck with ext. cab and bed, and a 20ft enclosed trailer (the same one I took pictures of and posted on page 4 of this thread). At least that's the plan for now, and I will have the same mower set up.

Some pictures of our shop neat and organized, don't know why the one photo came out smaller. We also still have a few walk behinds and vantages in one of our enclosed trailers locked up.

It is, I love exmark mowers honestly part of the reason why I came here was because we use exmark mowers.

Thought is post another update of what's been going on. Been mulching all our large properties by hand instead of having them blown in. Three weeks our branch has probably hand mulched over 600 yards of mulch.

Finally starting mowing next week luckily so should be an interesting first week working with two Hispanic guys who don't speak too much English but know how to mow at least. Got one new property I've only been on once last year and will take all day to mow, guys who did it before says it isn't much fun to mow but we will see. Also I'm disappointed that we aren't getting any new mowers this year, but at least the ones I got are good shape still. Will try to post pics next week.
