    Everything looks awesome! Wondering how big those bins are made out of the ties. Want to make some for my shop but have not came up with the size I think I should use.

    I let you know in a few days gotta take some measurements, but they can hold about 70 yrds of mulch if i stack it right when it's dumped here.

    Awesome setup! I think this is how a lot of guys on here would like to be, including myself! How much land are you exactly on? In acres.

    You have quite the setup for snow plowing also. Thanks for posting these! Gives us all something more to aspire to.

    everything looks great. but my only question is why not stick with one brand of trucks if you are happy with them. It seems you are a ford guy, from the mustang, the explorer and 2012 f250 and 97 f350 then you have a chevy and then a dodge 3500 with a cummins in it. There's nothing wrong with having all different brand trucks. I would just think you would stick with one for uniformity. I like fords all around. I like the cummins diesel motors but I'm not too big of a fan of the newer dodges 99-2010 and I like the newer chevys 2004-current but not for work trucks and too have a 2008 or 9 chevy 3500 diesel crew cab dually lifted 8 inches on 37 inch tall tires just isn't realistic yet. maybe in another year or two my business will show enough profit to buy something like that and build it, but not yet. so I plug along with my 1 97 f350 diesel as my only vehicle, and plan to buy a newer ford in the next year.

    Thanks RSK. To answer your question, sticking to 1 particular make truck was never really something i saw nesesary in my buisiness plan. I allways just bought if I thought it suited my budget and needs. I know what your saying for the uniform look however in a perfect world maybe I would have all fords but right now I use what i got. I've allways liked Ford's alittle more than Dodge or Chevy but I have good things to say about all 3. I enjoy the 3 because there American made (partially anyway) and I try to Support that as much as I can. Thanks bud:waving:
