We took the lettering off of the chevy last fall...both of the trucks are also our personal trucks. It was just a little too showy for me.

Nothing is lettered right now because we are not really looking for much additional business right now. My brother and I are both in college. When we finish, we plan to letter things up again and come up with a new name...hopefully do more landscaping than maintanence.

Ryan,

Great equipment, great setup, great everything.

I was wondering how you liked your 36" GS30 Walk Behind. I am getting ready to buy a very lightly used (30 hrs. or less) 1999 from the dealer and was wondering if you had any problems with yours or just advice in general.

Thanks - From a fellow college student / busy LCO.

I think the GS30 is great for the price. It cuts good and has been reliable.

A hyrdo would be nicer, as would a floating deck/easier way to adjust deck height; but that of course costs more.

We would like to get a wright stander this year, probably a 48" floater. Keep the 36 for gated lawns.

To sum it up, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the slightly used gs30.

Update

Just purchased a new dump trailer. 81" x 14', 14k GVW (7k axles), 10k jack, 10-ton hoist, 3in1 gate. Still have to mount the tarp roller and build some sides for it. We'll be making a leaf box for it and mounting the leafloader before next fall.

On edit -- just noticed in the pics that the jack wasn't all the way up, it doesn't usually hang down that low.








Purchased earlier this year are the Wright 36" stander and the Lesco 50-gal sprayer...
