Do you have any pick of your leaf removal set up?

I read through this tread and as a 14 year old I am very inspired and hope to grow to your size and maybe beyond someday!

Thanks!

That has way more detail than i thought, thanks man. That pole in the last pic, does that hold traffic cones? Any problems driving up the ramps without an attachment? My gehl is very rear heavy.

Yes, the pole is there for safety cones.

I do need something on the machine, to go up the ramps. A bucket or even forks are enough. It's no big deal. We have the power Bob-attach. We easily ride up with something, detach it, and grab the bucket on top.

Can you attach weights on the front?

Thx, I am glad your inspired. Just make sure you take things one step at a time. I can't tell you how many LC's around here, have grown too fast, to just have to go bankrupt, in the end.

I know of only 2 LC's that have a larger company than mine, in the area(never mind Brickman, who is just getting in). One has been around for a long time and will very likely be here for a long time. The other started approx. 12 yrs ago and I have heard of many financial and internal problems in that company.

Enough rambling. Here are he pics you asked for:

Thanks, I will definetly listen to that advice!

Not trying to be a pain but, do you use little wonder? Also have you ever used a Turf Tracer or Viking from Exmark? If you have, Pro's? Con's? Also could you look at my bussiness plan for 2014? Here is the link: http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=416287

Thanks so Much!

All the trucks 3500 or smaller are gas. Don't see the use of spending the extra on diesel. The trucks don't put on more than 12k miles a year.

I used to use Little Wonder push blowers, until I tried Billy Goat. I have used a Laser and a 48" walk but, this is years ago. Over all, in my opinion. Most walks are similar. They are all good. When it comes to the riders, stick with an Exmark(Toro), Hustler, or Scag. No matter what you buy, be sure you get it with a Kawasaki.
