I got stuck behind a landscape trailer yesterday when I was in a hurry to get somewhere. While I'm following this guy through no passing zones and a series of traffic lights, I get a chance to look over the equipment in his trailer through the mesh gate. I see what looks to be a fairly old Lesco 36" and some yellow machine from years gone by. The yellow unit has about 40% of the paint gone, and the Lesco looks slightly better. There is a rack over the top of the blower cage that has about 5 or 6 gas cans of various sizes and colors. They are all different. The trailer looks rough with bent angle iron, ripped expanded metal and in dire need of a paint job. The guy finally takes a left and he's driving a fairly new white extended cab truck. Nice graphics and text painted down the side advertising his company. The truck is very dirty. Its obvious it has been awhile since it was cleaned. The wheels (whatever they were) looked as if they had never been cleaned. Now that I've set the stage, I'll ask the question. Does the way this person maintains his setup give him a poor image? Do you think there are customers who would draw a conclusion of poor quality because of the way he keeps his equipment? I see a ton of LCO's on the road here in Houston, and the vast majority do not look to have what would be considered professional looking equipment. I'll stop here for the time being and allow folks to respond.
