R.O.S. Grounds Maintenance Inc.

We are in our third year... And in this neck of the woods, that means our third winter...
We only have a small handful of residential clients though we have a 25 driveway condominium that we take care of plus a few estate driveways and 7 commercial parking lots and an apartment building parking lot...

We just this week took delivery of our new Kubota B3350 tractor with loader, sweeper, rear blade and fertilizer spreader (we use them for throwing gravel onto parking lots)

We desperately need our own shop but there just is not anything available in this city currently (I'm hoping to find one in the spring for $2500/month or less) we currently use 2 back to back heated storage units (50' x 13') plus a sea can (that's where the mowers and summer equipment live right now)... Costing just about $1000/ month plus tax.

Here are a couple pictures of the shop ( yes, quite tight in there... And needing a bit of organizing)

At one door is our Kubota and at the other is our Yanmar sx3100... In between are the attachments and our Ariens WB sweeper and 45" WB snowblower.

We have added 3/4 ton van to our fleet which I will share a photo of soon.

Photos of our shop....
It has been oprganized a bunch since the photos


I got into a small accident (with a snow bank) with the van and insurance wrote it off, so I replaced it with a 2003 F-250 ext. cab with a 6.5' box.

haven't got it decaled yet... Just magnets for now.

new shop and equipment

This Spring, I purchased a new Kubota RTV 400 and a Z724 mower (with a power bagger and a JRCO dethatcher...
and moved into our new 1680sq foot shop.
Late last month I took delivery of a brand new Kubota R630 loader

I always loved kubota loaders! You have some sweet equipment, are you primarily mowing or do you offer other services such as landscaping, land clearing, etc ? Keep up the good work man.

Thanks!

In summer we are 5 of us and service about a dozen commercial sites and another 15 residential lawns... We primarily make out living doing landscaping.

In winter, we move a mountain of snow!
