    How is everyone making out so far? How is your pipeline? Are you on course to hit your projections? Are you better or worse than in the past? Has the housing market affected your biz? So far our sales are up this year. I do know of a couple of lco's in my area that are having a very hard time so far this year.


    Wishing everyone a successful year!

    Our year has started off in a very difficult position due to the fact that snow removal is our bread and butter from Nov to April and we have had little to no snow, but once we get to mid April well be off and running as Ive got projects booked through may already.

    In my area it seems like a normal year for the most part, the exception to this is how many new lcos there is. I saw someone with a brand new honda (cant think of what the heck they are called, not the mini van and not the truck but the small suv) and it was pulling this rinky dink trailer with little itty bitty donut wheels and a bunch of gear.:hammerhead: I also saw a van like on the scooby doo cartoon pulling a trailer. (what was that called the mystery van?) anyway it was all beat up and the guys mowing looked really scary like meth users.:dizzy: No I am not kidding either. Seeing a ton of these guys out there this year. In fact I lost a commercial account that was from one of these type of outfits, they under bid us by quite a bit, told the G.M. I just couldn't compete with that. Oh well win some and you loose some. Hope you all are doing well for the year.

    5 estimates for this morning. Though not at full steam, sales are up over last year so far.
