What is more out of place a 460 gravely on a residental lawn 65' wide x 75' or a gravely HD60 To the actual home owner the 460. This is why it's home owner junk to you
Here is my reasoning , a gravely hd 44" is commercial enough
It has the same every thing as their commercial compact 44" except the engine and I mean everything

So then I looked at the 60" which is exactly the same as that commercial 44" except the engine again

My conclusion : if it's the same then why spend more for the same machine so we save money , now small lawns and wear them out.
As for the trucks , what trucks are junk that I still run are you speaking of?

You can't benefit from a commercial machine if your current machines preform to your needs and expectations .

Go back and read this thread , it's a lot less then 4500 now.
And is it really when I had 100 plus men talking every spring in different towns of the state, come on.

A few weeks ago I had 7 phones handling 40 calls each a day. Just understand with the area of service 4600 is not 10000th/1% of the population

It is like this if you care to rationalize it
If you had a cheap rig and you started a 2 man crew
When this crew secured 45-50 accounts you create another
Cheap crew ....then each crew
Grows at its own pace to reach a
Goal of a full schedule.

This is all I did for years, find work and give it to a
crew

Wasn't that international sleeper in your "fleet" picture?
Posted via Mobile Device
No idea what fleet picture your talking about, but no just because it sits in a field and grass grows around it most days of a year. We use it to haul the farm large equipment, pick up / deliver pallets of supplies for jobs and leaf cleanup work

Here it is . 02:09 PM 04-19-2014 35DollarLawns (Tennessee/Greater Nashville area way south - 782 posts) Ok so I have got our new numbers so now it is time to start over.
27 trucks
19 mowing
2 landscape install
2 chemical
3 fertilize
1 tree
67 men total
1877 maintenance accounts and 700 additional fall clients.

I have a feeling I will be needing 4-5 more trucks to be able to split crews when playing catch up, time will tell.
I think the weed control is in trouble.

Someone said took to the cleaners,
It appears I am low in support trucks ....

Ieveryone here knows I am the same guy as extremelawncare and XLS. I have always stated large size.
It is also know I create a crew and give it a name property perfect is just one.
It has nothing to do with being small As a company only the property perfect name.
I was trying to start over here and post pics building to a question from you guys like " dang how big are you man you have like added 30 mowers this year

That was my true intentions as under extreme I couldn't
Post pics at all to here, it took Donovan explaining why with e-mail and photobucket I could post stuff.

Before I could start posting a member found out I was extreme and ever since its been interesting.
