Go ahead and do it. You'll never regret one bit of it. No more trailer behind me unless I'm doing landscaping.

Was there a reason you didn't get a dump cab over? I wonder what it can be done to set one of those cab over dumps up.

Oh yes, it doing great. That's another great investment I've made into the business. I'm seeking to get a dump trailer and an Bobcat M52 track (walk behind) for landscaping.

Sounds good, a dump trailer would be a great addition, myself im thinking a dump bed for a f250/350 for grass/leaves or possibly a F350/Older F-Superduty with a 3yd/5yd with sides dump box for next year, i would like to run two crews next year, i seem to enjoy being on the move with maintenance then staying on site with landscaping

Yes I wanna let my guy run the grass business. And I back off from it. Only go out to check out jobs, get more business and collect money!!! But it's hard to keep dependable trust worthy people. Most of them wanna work a few weeks, get a couple of checks and quite.
