Hill Lawn & Landscape- 2013

Well these past 2 weeks have been pretty wet and its finally making it difficult to work. After looking around on here at everyone elses pictures, I figured now would be a good time to show off some of my own stuff. Some equipment, previous jobs, and whatevers work related on my phone!

Here's the truck (when we weren't getting any rain) all shined up!



Kubota L3940



This is a yard I mow for free. The guy is a welder and has always been a big help whenever I needed something welded or help doing something. A few weeks ago he was working on a track hoe and got his arm sucked in the clutches and lost his arm up past his elbow. For the amount of work he did for me at no cost, I don't mind spending 20 minutes mowing for him!



Here is my current job. Im installing a 8 zone irrigation system, then re-grading the yard, seeding it and starting fert apps.





My friend Jake digging for the backflow





Here I am hooking into the water line



and a few others



getting the Kubota ready to be delivered to us!



system from November, picture taken a month ago... green now!

What is on the back of the tracter with the bucket in the snow plow pictures? and why so much rebar in the driveway? is it code or something? I actually pump concrete full time now an I have never seen so much or any at all in the driveways here in michigan, we just use wire.

The thing on the back of the tractor is a harrow that is hydraulically raised/lowered, my dad thought of the idea so he got a patent on it. as for the rebar, the previous driveway had the wire in it, cracked to pieces, sunk and had a giant dip 12" lower than the other side. Most everyone around here uses 2' centers.

I only have one, its a 2012 Kubota L3940 HST-C3. The other in the picture with the plow is a friend of mine. It helps out a lot in the business, spreading fertilizer, being able to grade and seed yards, move things, cleaning up after irrigation installs, and just about anything else.

I have a 60" Hustler Z. Been so busy lately with everything else that mowing just kinda gets crammed in my schedule and I never think to take a picture of it!

Very Nice equipment and work. How did the Kubota do in the snow?? I am thinking about a similar set up but need it to move snow.
