    I know this post is kinda pointless, but do you think you look more professional when all of your equipment maches color? I always see guys with like a Great Dane, a Lesco, Reedmax rimmers, Echo blower, stuff like that. I want to get a read truck, with a red enclosed trailer, or red or black open, and all orange equipment like Scag mowers, Stihl trimmers and blowers, Echo blowers, Huisqvarna Aerators and thatcher, and like that. Give me your opinions, I know it has nothing to do with quality of service, but I think it looks cleaner.

    looks better, but not worth switching to a lesser brand, or one you don't like most.

    I buy the best machine (in my opinion) of each type. I could care less what color it is. However, all my trailers are black and soon, all of my trucks will be red.

    I have more important things to worry about then if my equipment colors match. I buy for performance not matching colors.

    who gives a rats *** if my machines match. Once i get my enclosed trailer, the general public will not see my machines. All they will see is a clean trailer with my logo on the side.

  10. Matching equipment in the lawn care business is about as important as matching equipment in the car detail business. Or how about if you have ever had you carpet cleaned. You did make sure that the carpet cleaners had matching equipment, did you not?
