    it is sick! i assembled it last night and i took pictures of it. I sucked up some leaves and they were like dust coming out of it. I screamed holy shi*ittt and my neighbor yelled at me for swearing infront of his kids.


    The only part is, now i have to build a box for it and i dont know where to put the loader because i didnt get the tailgate bracket. I think im going to mount it onto the front corner of my trailer

    1st picture: a tree i cut down and hauled up to my cottage. Its around 6000 pounds of weight. Actually a little more.

    2nd picture. My house

    3rd. My blown out tire on my trailer that happened on i-75 on the way to pick up the vantage. Scared the **** out of me and cracked a windshield out behind me.

    4th and 5th. An arborviaes and mulch job done a couple weeks back. Of coarse i didnt buy the crooked tree's, I MEANT REALLY REALLY CROOKED . but i planted and installed all of them. They look really uneven in the picture but are evenly spaced out. I bought the mums because she wanted color for cheap. So i just got yellow and orange mums for a little color. They are much bigger now than in the picture. I also picked up her mowing account and a sprinkler install next season.

    This is the truck that i am looking at right now. It is 28,596.99 plus tax, title, and license's. It comes with the v-xt 9'6". The plow itself is worth 6k so i think this is a steal!

    It is a 5.4 triton v8 4x4 with snow prep, power locks, power windows. 8 foot bed regular cab. Vinyl floor and seating with cab lights.

    Let me know if you guys think its a good deal.

    Also, this is the sprinkler job i have been working on for the past week. The system wasnt working at all. I replaced all 6 rotors, all heads and dug out the box and put some granit rock underneigth for drainage. I re-wired all the valves and installed a new hunter control. Also, had to replace the backflow breaker valve.

    Was a long job but looks way cleaner and works great with no leaks and very efficently

    Both of these houses and the above house i did the complete landscaping, irrigation, and sod job this year in may. Its pretty much what kept me busy when i was done with highschool and thank god for them .The big green house is by far the nicest lawn i mow and i mow it at the lowest setting my lazer goes it without scalping 2.5". It is soo short. The owners kids wanted to chip and play golf so he told me to take it down and its been down ever since. and the blue house was in a magazine for the architecture.
