    I figured it was a large crew, with 6 trucks and all that stuff going out every day. I have 3 trucks, but crew #1 only takes one of them out.
    I thought that perhaps some folks had misunderstood the question, and were providing a complete inventory instead of a daily thing. See, if it was me, I would wait 'til winter to take those 3 snowplows out on a daily basis. ;)
    What's a Redmax 7001, a trimmer, and why do you bring so many of them? Have you got a cemetary job, or other job with a bunch of trimming?
    I have a lot of equipment, but I have simplified, and don't bring much out on an average day. I don't even bring my hedge trimmers unless I have planned a trimming job for that day. I do bring hand pruning tools, for light touch-ups.
    Glad to hear you're doing so well, General Grounds. Not just making a living, but providing jobs for so many people. Keep up the good work.

    :blob3: crawdad, ok heres the break down

    the 2003 f350 is my personal truck which i use for estimates and other work related things

    i have 1 chemical man pullin the gmc and the enclosed trailor, and i have 3 - 3man crews 2 mowing and 1 doing small cleanup work , all major work is done with the entire group.

    redmax 7001 is a blower, equiptment is spread out, if we dont have something and need it we go get it.

    Actually, the original question was, what do you take out every day; although a reread shows that Husky wanted to see either a complete list or what a crew takes out each day.
    I'll try to get a pic of my rig today, you can tell me if I have oversimplified. But I will not post a complete inventory of everything I own, from the Clinton Choremaster one-wheel tractor, all the way to the Scag and Exmark walk-behinds and the riders and such. I'll post a ready-for-a-workday pic.
