Part of the Fertilizer Fleet

Thought i would share a couple pictures of the 2 of the 5 trucks in our fertilizer and weed control division. I also have a couple of pics of our chemical cage setup by our fill bay. Our filling station works out very well. We have a pump that will send water from the pit upto a storage tank to reuse in our sprayer tanks. The chemical barrels are only for selective weed killer. I was thinking about putting a barrel of round up on the top rack but plumbing it to a total different location away from the selective herbicides. The white barrel in one of the pics was once iron but changed over to the soluble iron packets with micro nutrients. Still alot of work to do with the fleet. Would like to retire the last two hundred gallon tank. Maybe another flatbed next with a 400! There are couple more additions we need to make things even more efficient and productive. I would like to see other fertilizer and weed control set ups, especially some enclosed trailers set up with tanks . If anyone has any suggestions or ideas i greatly appreciate.

Sweet! Looks like you've got a serious operation going on! Do you guys mow? Landscape construction, or are you strictly lawn care? Any other pics?

Lawn care maintenance, landscaping, irrigation, snowplowing. Pretty much everything to do with property care. Many more pictures to come. Yeah no problems here. Just need a couple updates to make things go quicker. Next thing would be tandem axle enclosed trailer and z plugger with all the attachments. Pretty much every division gets bigger every week.

Yeah i parted that bad boy out two years ago. Still have two magnums that are ok and an old centri with no motor. No use for them anymore. Too slow and not enough capacity. If anyone is interested in those units get ahold of me. May have two 200 gal tanks for sale at seasons end as well.
