just put the rhino lined bumper on a few days ago, and just got it lettered this afternoon, so here's the end result for now...and yes that a go pro mount on the front bumper. I plan to take some videos of some of the more intense clean ups I use this for.

thanks, now that i'm all set with fall equipment, its time to focus on snow removal equipment, and making sure everything is up to par for whatever we get thrown our way, new paddles going on the toro ccr 2000's and my ariens 10/28 is getting new belts, fresh oil and a new bearing in the gear box. then I'm hoping to be able to pick up a new ariens professional 11528 snow blower just in case mother nature tries any funny stuff this year, so i'm prepared, or if my plow's both break down somehow I can still get my driveways done. which reminds me I need a solenoid for the one my neighbor is giving me.

its definitely a blast to use. my parents hosted a surprise engagement party for my brother and fiancee, and everyone was like what they heck is that thing. because conveniently there is no room in my garage for this yet, so it was parked in front of the garage, and everyone who walked in saw it, and was asking about it. I'll take some video of it later today with my iphone. I'm heading to my grandmas to do a first pass at her house. I'll get footage with the go pro later when I get home. I still have to set that up.




24 so far. but with my 24 accounts they bring in enough to pay all my bills, and there's a decent profit left over too. but as you can see I take the profit and put it back into the business to buy things to make my life easier and jobs go quicker. I am in the beginning stages of making it into a career. I've been at as my only source of income since 2010. I opened my business legit, licensed and insured since april of 2011, and have been going up from there. also I should mention I only work 2-3 days a week except spring and fall.
that is pretty awesome debris loader and stand on blower.....
$8.5k! interesting atleast lol would need to have a lot of accounts

by licensed I'm simply talking about being licensed with the state of ct to do business legally in ct, and I'm licensed with the department of consumer protection. That is all. those are the licenses that would help get business, Basically i'm just letting people know I'm legit and not gonna take your money and run and i'm not fly by night guy who doesn't know what he's doing. I'd like to get bonded but not sure it will have much effect on the amount of business I get.
