Green Guys Landscaping & Lawn thread

I've been on here for a while now and since ill be turning 18 I think it's time for me to start posting, i'm just starting off and still need a few things but this is my set up for the time being! Oh and the name of my company is going to be Green Guys something something, still need to figure it out!


This is my temporary truck just to help me get started and from place to place with no problem. Payed $3100 for it, it's in great condition.

Few pics of my "set up"





I still need to get trimmer racks.

This is a account I have its 2 acres, but about 1 acre which is more like a field had been flooded for a month and a half and I just got to finally mow it. I put my bota to work!










Progress

Thanks man I really enjoy having it. Helps me get around so much easier. It has a whopping 202k miles on it. I got it because it's in amazing condition the interior is flawless. It was only owned by one person which was a older gentlemen so he took care of it and never towed a day in its life. It wasn't a hard decision. Wow! A 97 with only that many miles?! That's crazy.

yep. My grandpa's daily driver was a work van because he's a builder. So it sat a lot.. it was spotless when I sold it, miles mean nothing if you take care of em! My f150 has 215k on it now, I bought it with 210k. I'd drive it anyway, they are all highway miles and it was just babied.

Ohh that makes complete sense. Wow I would have never guessed it had that many miles on it. I'm just slightly worried about my tranny but that's it.

That's what has me a bit worried. The Kubota is amazing! I couldn't be happier with it. The diesel just makes it 100 times better and it sips fuel no matter what hell I put it through. Haha yeah it was pricey I payed $10,750 for it, I got a deal on it though since I cut a Kubota dealer and I deal with the sales manager. I put 5,000 down then payed the rest off in 5 months.
