    Anyone every thought about getting an Express Blower system?

    They are something like 200 grand +, but should be able to make 20 + grand monthly yearly payments on it. It would replace the need for 2 staff members for laying mulch and would pay for itself. If I can get the financing I would consider it. Anyone here move in that direction?

    Nice machine, wish I had the cash for that! If you can put it to use with your own work, go for it. People I talk to say get the EB and forget the Finn, because you will get the EB sooner than you think.

    Its a big chunk of change, thats for sure, but if it does what it says it can do you can make some huge profits on it. Its just finding the work for it.

    You can also sub out your truck with/without a operator to the other LMO's in your area, right?

    I think one of those things is supposed to spread dry topsoil too, isn't it?

    Good Luck!

    yeah, check it out at http://www.expressblower.com. I'm thinking it would be hard to get hurt by lowballers in this market, and be a great service to offer other local landscape companies for their bids. If I get my claws on the local market it will be hard for me to be taken down. I'm quite serious about it and will keep you guys up to date.
