    Just got done installing the much needed double blower racks ($90 new). Put my big cleanup off until tomorrow. Got alot of calls for bids/estimates today :weightlifter: Anyway thought it would be the perfect time to finally throw up some pics.

    I started a year ago (March) with the little Echo blower and Old Echo trimmer. They're both almost a decade old. Both still start first pull in cold weather or hot.

    Yep, only equipment pics for now. I always forget to bring the digi when doing jobs but I'll be sure to a little later on in the season when I have the lawns down looking perfect. I bought the echo 770 early fall for leaves and man it has 160cfm more than redmax 8050, so yeah, it moves anything and everything.

    Thanks for looking,
    Griffin

    Looking good there Southern!! How do you like having those blowers & trimmers on the street side?

    hey mcc_landscape, how do you like the snapper walk behind. i had a snapper 21 inch commercial hi vac and it gave a great cut. just that the bagging and mulch system were a shitty setup so i went to toro and i absolutely love it. will only use my snapper for discharge. never going back to snapper for a bagger or mulcher.

    Thanks alot man. Organization, maintenance, and keeping stuff clean are all very important to me. I think it speaks tons about the type of quality work that person provides.

    You know, there's been ALOT of debate about that but I'll give you my reasons.
    1.Always park across the street from the lawn I am cutting so I have plenty of room to get EVERYTHING off their curb. You can still do it parked in front of someones home but it's more of a PITA, and I prefer to simplify everything.
    2. When I back into my garage the driver side obviously leaves the trimmers and blows perfectly accessible to do any needed maintenance.
    3.I do pull up infront of the house when doing mulch and this leaves the passenger side wide open when shoveling mulch into wheelbarrows or throwing bags of debris in.
    4.Easier to see in my rearview.

    The arguments against it are hilarious, like "this way you don't have to cross the street" lol What the hell? Oh no a whole 10 ft in 5th gear on my walkbehind! Ugh what a pain!

    So yeah I'm definitely all about it on the drivers side. It occured to me because I used to run alot of companys and they were always on passenger side and it was just more of a pain.


    Metro is a 36". Hardly ever need the 21". This mower has been the best walk behind I have ever used, which is saying alot I've used almost all of them. The 15hp Kawasaki is FLAWLESS. Fired on first pull in 30* weather after sitting for 5 months. Amazing on gas. The ECS controls are a MUST, and are sooo much more comfortable than the old style pistol grips. It has the mulch kits which leave cuts looking great, no clippings. Any other questions about it, lemme know, otherwise go buy one. I believe it's an 06 or 07

    I appreciate the comments about my truck. I know there eventually will be that guy dogging on me because it looks awesome and he thinks a "work truck" has to look boring. The truth is I put 4.56 gears in it front and rear. That coupled with the 350 and taking it out of overdrive you would never know the trailer was back there at all. That truck has been amazing. Lot of ppl use the c1500/k1500 as work trucks. Mine just happens to be decked out.

    I absolutely love the snapper walk behind! I am looking to buy a 36'' to couple with it. I will post pics this weekend on my thread. (mcginn landscaping). I would highly recommend it to anyone! It will cut pretty high grass with ease and the cut always looks pretty nice!

    I am really looking for a 36" this year and have been looking for a snapper but i might have to take a look at the exmarks now! And i dont see why your truck cant look awesome and still be a work truck! It looks very nice and people should be easily able to identify you by it!
