    Thanks, gotta have the edge on the competition otherwise people think you're a hack. And yeah it does fill up quick but it was way cheaper than the alternative baggers and I couldnt find a pro vac for a price I could afford.

    Been a pretty busy week/weekend.

    Finished up the remainder of my customers Blowouts Saturday morning and from then til 9pm sat and noon to 8pm Sunday a buddy of mine and I did about 14 commercial Blowouts around the metro for another friend of ours that does the maintenance at a bunch of ihops, baker squares, and applebees around the metro.

    My buddy's 06 Cummins and the compressor we've been using, older with an International Gas engine in it. Ran bad right away kuz its hardly been used but once we started using it a lot it it ran great. That pic was at a bakers square in south st Paul, only two zones but it took forever kuz we had the wrong fittings for the shut off valve so we had to run to home depot and get the necessary parts.

    Later that evening on the way home, yes that is legit and he doesn't have a tune, that's what Cummins get when you keep em at 55-60 mph. A cummins will definitely be my next truck.


    This was the last one we did at about 8pm Sunday night, a bakers square in bloomington

    It was dark when I got done otherwise I would have gotten a picture of my truck loaded to the top with leaves.

    Here's some pics if the Target Field tour we took today for my Sports Turf class. I was there for the first time in June for 20 min and the game got rained out and then the make up game in Sept and the twins got destroyed.
