    We are gearing up now..maybe getting started with spring cleanups in a week or two. Bidding jobs is what I'm trying to learn from the owner currently...I think he bids too low sometimes..ugh.

    Well... maybe some more snow tonight? Sweet. As if the cold temperatures aren't already slowing things down. Not like we can do anything about it, but damn.

    We keep getting rain...might have to wait another week. We're supposed to get more rain Monday and Tuesday. Wonder if we will even get spring cleanups in?

    Yeah well once we hit that few days in the 60s and 70s I feel like stuff is going to start growing quick and there won't be a whole ton of time for clean ups..

    I was doing that too... but at the dealership.. trying to decide if I want to finance a new machine. If it were last year I would have done it already. But this year is a little different. Waiting to hear back on some landscape jobs right now that will influence my decision greatly. Want too many things right now haha

    Lol! Yup...we bought a new one last year, but of course the owner and one of the other guys went and bought it, and went with the new x-series lazer, and does not share much with the previous gen lazers...which we have three of, and a plethora of spare parts. We just finished our first quick landscape job this year, and are looking a couple patio jobs already. We have one wide area mower, and two more identical to ours just came up for sale for cheap, so im in the owners ear to snag one..lol

    Yeah I plan on jumping into the snow removal game next year. I plow with some guys I know now but don't have my own equipment.
