    We had another expansion this year. Landed a couple of substantial contracts with the city and HUD. We decided to open the landscaping portion of this business this year. Buying a skid steer is quite an undertaking to say the least. I'm sure allot of you know what I mean. I bought another JD 777 2 weeks ago with the new 7 iron deck II and in a 72". I am impressed with the discharge and suction. Any one else out there have the new deck and have comments?

    Its very nice. The 180T is brand new. I was one of the first to sign a contract on one. I looked at the Bobcat T180 and The ASV RC60. It came down to price, service, the dealer. I rented a Bobcat T180 for about a month last fall and liked it. When I showed interest in buying but explained it would be a couple of months before I commit to one the Bobcat dealer was very hard to get ahold of and get prices that were in this atmosphere and no demo. The ASV dealer was 10,000.00 higher than all others and the demo consisted of driving it in their parking lot. The JCB dealer (Chris) didn't care when I was going to buy one. He had three demos and asked me to wait until after Christmas to demo one. I waited for him and after the new year I called him and started the conversation up again. He pulled one off a demo and dropped it in our yard. It took a month for us to get it back to him. He never minded and encouraged us to keep using it. That sold me on the product and the dealer. Now keep in mind that JCB's USA manufacturing plant is in Pooler, GA a suburb or Savannah. Sorry this is so long but I was impressed with the machine and the dealer greatly.

    No. I have been using a guy out of the town next to us. I feel overwhelmed already this year. Maybe some other year. Do you hydro seed? It seems very profitable.
