Work & Equipment Pics as I Grow

Hi all. Starting a new thread just due to some issues from SEO and having my company name in the thread title. Anyways, little about me, I'm 20 years old and this is my second year doing this. Got into doing it from my father having a hardscape company since I was little, but he moved it out of state when I was younger, decided to do this out of high school and last year I was able to leave my full time job and do this full time.
So here's a little then to now

Feb 2012 I bought my truck with , 08 F150, still in high school, didn't start the biz until 2013.


Jan 2013 I bought my trailer, right after a 33" Sutech Stealth WB. Picked up a used Echo Edger and BP blower



May 2013 I bought a 2013 Bob-Cat ProCat new


Customers picked up until plateauing in the mid summer. Picked up a new Echo trimmer and Red Max blower. Some lawn work.

Started doing some small landscaping too, as well as maintenance. Nothing huge, but here's a few. Hoping to do more this year.

Then we get into winter. I managed to buy a new Boss 7'6" for my truck. Decided a new plow on my halfton was worth more than a beater/plow right now. Then picked up a Salt Dogg tailgate spreader. Last picture is the latest.

Did you have fun cutting through those Pine roots on that mulch bed/landscape edging install?

That bed was a pain! I went through 4 or 5 SawZall blades and one chainsaw chain. Roots are the enemy for sure.
