    We all have those days, equipment breakdowns, customer issues, etc. Everything looks great though.

    For the mower, I had that same issue with a older scag turns out it was the dead man/operator presence switch. Usually a cheap part, I would advise you not to bipass it.

    did some edging today to prep for a mulch job on friday. Also looking into a dump instead of the 2500 dmax for plowing. Would be nice to have for mulch next year and we already have 2 hardscaping jobs next year too. I had another friend who had mentioned doing landscaping with me last year but my other friend(yes that friend) didnt really want 3 of us owning it but he is more willing to spend some money on equipment. Hopefully for next year we made this list of what we would like to get

    F-450 or F-550 Dump
    Finn Bark Blower
    Bed Edger
    Maybe a skid depending on hardscaping work.

    Most if not all will be used. We will be pursuing more mulching work as well as installs and hitting commercial work hard but with our start this year then i hope we can keep growing

    Edging looks good man, and that's quite a list but you keep up the hard work you can accomplish it.:weightlifter:
