I really like that box truck, definitely innovative with the power up & down.

The workload is finally coming in, my EDDM postcards so far have had a good response, (hit mailboxes Tuesday), I can wait to finally get out working with this warm weather on the way. Did you guys send out your EDDM postcards out yet?

I sent out around 5000 that hit mail boxes Mon-Tuesday. Have had an ok response so far. 10 or so leads. It was just fertilizer focused.
Have closed 3 for Fert 3 called and left messages but when called back no answer or return call. (It shows the importance of answer the phone the first time when someone calls or they will keep trying others till they get someone.) Closed a couple for irrigation service 1 irrigation redo, 1 year round complete maint. for the prop and waiting to hear back from a 3 or so.
This weather is not helping. I have 5000 more to send out next week.

It's just an isuzu NQR we bought used and then we fabricated the back and ramp.
This is the second one we have built. The first had a ramp but no power just spring assist.

I enjoy winter, it is a big part of our business and I have a lot of winter hobbies but this one has gone on a bit long. Ready for summer work to start. Lots of exciting things happening this season.
