    No, I dont bag the grass to much of a pain, and for the most part a waist of time.

    Quick question, how do you fill up your equipment trucks, mowers, mini ex, do you do it after work or do you have a transfer tank? Thanks. Sorry if its too much I am in a bind with what to do.

    Hey man, everything looks amazing just like last year. What is that third scag you have now? Do take your mowers to get serviced or do you do them your self? If you have them done at a dealer how much does it cost you to have one of them done if you dont mind me asking?

    No im in the process of getting bulk fuel tanks at the house, but for now its just fill up every morning at 7:30am, and for the excavator and lawnmower just fill em up at the pump for now

    The third scag is the new tiger cat, so far its been a great mower, has lots of power, and no we service our own lawn mowers. Servicing scags is really basic and easy, i suggest just doing them yourself, it would cost us a way to much. We sharpen lawn mower blades usually 2 times a wk

    Sweet man, ya know I havnt had time to look into it, but when things slow down I will have to look into it more. I think it would really save us probably 20 mins a day if we had it at our garage.

    Yeah, ya know its been a pretty good year, last month was my best month for my company, and so far, im ahead in numbers for what i wanted to make at the end of the year. So i guess thats always good, especially the way this economy is. It just shows if you do good work, you ll stay busy.

    100 yards with 5 full time guys and you? Must not be doing that many mulch jobs. I just passed 160 and its just my brother and I. What is your average size job? I seem to be around 13-14 yards.
