    Seems like just yesterday I was busting butt to get my Rd 1 done!Then the rush to beat the dandy's,then the rush to beat the grubs,then the rush to beat the Jap. Beatles,then rush to beat the leaves.Now nothing to do plan my winter tear down on equipment,and new ideas to build.This was the fastest season I ever remember in 20 + yrs.

    bob, wasup. i kknow, fast season. i think it was due to being sooooo busy with the great year we had. never slowed down for a blink. we started our winterizing today. we changed oil in every honda we have. that is because our spray tanks use honda, and so does all our verticutters and aerators. haha. we also washed them, greased them and lubed the throttle cables. they are ready to sit all winter after we get the new plugs and air filters in and on.

    Good job, my son!!
    Yeah. We get all the equipment spiffy and ready to go for next time. We change plugs, filters, etc...and oil of course. Any parts in need of replacement are ordered and installed prior to putting anything away. I don't like having to mess with stuff right when you really need it.
    Next up....detail the spray trucks!!!
    Woohoo!! My guys sure love this stuff!! LOL!!!

    I have 6 more working days of the late fall application and 2 aeration's still to do, it has been a fast season!! then go thru the PG's for the winter with new belts, cables and paint the wheels. I need to get my box-truck set up the way I want it inside and have the graphics put on. I have been working out of it the last couple months and have to say it makes my days easier.. sooooooo much fun riding the PG down the ramp in neutral!!!
