    What's the difference?? A bag of fertilizer, 50 lbs, multiplied by 60, would be 1.5 tons. Or 80 bags would be 2 tons.

    Yes, when I collected my check at the scrapyard, it was usually for a little over a ton. There was only one time it was over 2 (I think it was 4,200lbs)

    I did not actually know that. I am not licensed. I sub out alot of things. Chemicals, tree trimming, sprinkler work, and now we no longer do our own landscape installs. Strictly whittled down to maintenance. No more headaches. :cool2:

    We only have 180 clients and only 150 stops per week after you take into account the bi weekly. We mow 4 days a week 35 to 38 lawns per day. and do sod installs and Bush and Bed jobs on sat and mondays. This spring we are opening another truck and hope to gain another 75 to 80 clients.

    oh yea our average LOT not lawn is 9000ft2 before improvements
