I was was of those fortunate enough to attend the "open house" last week. It was an awesome opportunity for us. Jarod is an amazing asset to the industry and I am thankful he is willing to share his insight and his operation.

Glad you got to enjoy that race first hand. T.V. coverage just does not do a Nascar race justice.

The MTL's are a lot more suitable for landscape contractors. Plus mtl's will push snow and the ctl's won't. There's argument that the mtl undercarriage is a lot more to maintain but I've talked to enough landscapers that run them "smart" that I'm not overly worried about it.
