    That's rough. I'm worried about breaking the barrier of hiring people. Are you running just yourself and one employee?

    Ran more earlier this year, my older Yukon died and just ran one sometimes two other guys depending on work load, its sometimes more confusing then what its worth.

    Oh ok, now I see what your talking about with the deck. It's amazing with that 1 bolt can do. But the over grown grass on the sidewalk look like it was horrible. You did a good job on it.

    Yes you can make extra money doing that as well, but the only thing is if you don't have the right blade on it, you can mess up your engine.

    Right, yeah to be honest the thing never gets worked to hard, spring for a couple weeks and then the edges are pretty much always there, lol since i bought it i never really found how far/how over grown it could take, for being the smallest model it fared well, and some of the other deals with the other vehicles fell threw, but found yet another 1997 F250HD 5.8 with 129K for 3800(though he said the price is negotiable), it also had a western 8ft straight plow on it, were trying to work out the cost if the mount stays on, the plow stays or nothing stays on the truck, i would prefer a V-Plow(got to use them at my previous company and they were sweeeet:usflag:) but i know with my first year on my own i might need to settle for a bit less, also need to factor in i need another trailer and a trac vac or ultravac used if i can find any.
