    This is what kills me....people like this...a accident waiting to happen....and they were on the highway for almost 30 mins....the other thing is....they drove all that way, more then sure they lowballed someone, and maybe made 11 bucks after gas and time and cost of pine straw.....two guys were in the truck too....We were coming from 3 comm accounts and a few rez accounts west of Atlanta.....Oh, and don't mind me snapping pics while driving...:hammerhead: .....

    That's a Toyota Tacoma, correct?

    Poor truck!

    IIRC I beleive it's a definite safety violation ANYWHERE to have stuff piled up like that beyond the bed.

    I had to get the pic...didn't know they were getting off on the same exit or I would have waited....first two pics were far away, but wasn't sure how well the pic was so decided to mash the gas a little to get a close up....Do yall see the trimmer at the top....Oh, and it was a Nissan....I wish I could have seen exactly where they went, and how well they spread the pine straw....

    And heck nawh they dont have a lic. to spray....probably watered down mix of the cheap round-up.....

    This is what hurts our industry.....I mean I realize a guy is just trying to make a buck, but when I just know he lowballed to get the job will make it harder for us guys trying to charge market.....I refuse to go below market for any job, but if this stuff keeps up I won't have a choice...

    Snap away, we don't get to see setups like that here. Well at least not too many.
