same here- friday is it...last cleanup. Cleanups went good this season, (all except for a blown engine on a trac vac) otherwise, nice n smooth.
We still have other work to take us thru Dec. but we'll be ready for snow after next friday.

I'm taking a long weekend. These cleanups are for people who didn't call until this week. So they can wait till Monday for all care.

Is there any reason that most people I know run dump trailers instead of something like a 1 ton dump truck?

Maybe the extra cost and high insurance on a dump truck. IDK!

Yeah for me i have both but The cost of maintaining one is cheaper and so is insurance. Also the fact of how they are very versatile is also a plus. Can haul heavy equip. such as a skid, Also on small jobs we throw mulch from the bed- with a dump trailer its easier because you dont have to climb up and down it all day!

ALSO with a dump trailer in the fall, you dont have to worry the night before a snow storm trying to get the box off of a dump truck so you can plow the next morning. All we have to do is unhook the trailer go.

also found a old thread on this topic http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=147801

That is NOT high. Fert prices spiked again this season. TruGreen is never the standard by which to measure pricing. If you want TG then call them. You won't be happy with it.
