    Sweet splitter I use the Troybilt from Lowes two years now with no trouble, I think its the same thing you got just different name on it.

    27 ton and nothing stops in its way so far.


    Have fun splitting and be safe

    I also picked up my brand new 18hp billy goat leaf vac today. I ordered it last week. This is my 10th year doing leaves and I finally bought a leaf vac:hammerhead: I hope to get lots of use for the next 15 years with this unit. I almost bought the 13hp unit but I figured I better get the 18hp.

    Just got back from a vacation in Colorado, I've never been out west and it was beautiful. I really appreciated the experience, got to meet up with my brother who is stationed out there, it was fun:drinkup:

    Nice loader and splitter. Both worth every penny in the long run. I'll never go without a splitter as long as I'm burning wood. My dad is a ass for not getting one when we were younger. Always trying to save a dollar.

    Here was a install I did with one of my guys today. House was bare with a few perenials in the grass, so we added some small raised beds with mulch and plants and the customers wanted some pavers laid as a edge for the mower which I thought was kind of cool.

    For some reason the people I've done installs for have zero interest in perennials. I mean I love symmetry and form in the foundation plantings but perennials can soften things not to mention offer color that everyone wants. And they come back. I'm not sure I myself would use them in the front foundation bed but separate gardens or around patios yes. Unfortunately most barely have a budget for what they get. That's probably part of the problem.

    Thanks for the input. Around here people go crazy for perenial, I mean seriously they love perenials. I like using them especially for lighter budgets like this job was only $400 in plants. If you noticed the bed between the walk is where I put most of them. That was kind of a small area for alot of color. I like to allways mixed up landscapes with a variety of plants. I like to use evergreen shrubs as well as deciduous plants and also flowering perenials and I like to see color all year.

    I didn't mean to come across like I was telling you what to do. Just merely stating my preferences. I also think some people think plants/materials are free to landscapers for some reason.... I need to expand my plant knowledge greatly also so it's easier to build landscapes.
