    I wish we could get everything in one place for a family pic right now but everything seems to be on the move usually. We are going to try to get the family portrait later this summer for a show we're going to.

    We did finally start an interesting project mowing along a highway for about 20 mi in preparation for a bunch of road work.

    Machine looks awesome Andrew. Glad to see your expanding at a well paced rate. How are the mulch sales this year? Any new ventures Or directions your trying to take with the business or just expanding on what your already doing? Sorry I never made it down there this weekend , ended up going to Illinois .

    We have the new trailer but it's going into the shop already as the spare tire broke the welds on the mount 40 mins after we picked it up from the dealer in NH and it went flying into traffic. Thankfully no one got hurt and only one car was slightly damaged. So it's going into the shop to remount the spare tire in the A-frame of the trailer rather than on the side of the trailer like it was from the factory.

    Sean- mulch sales are up this time from last year and we're getting a lot of new interest from some big (to us) buyers. It's still relatively early in the game but I did spend all day Saturday grinding up about 1000 yds of red mulch (500 yds of which are already sold to one buyer). The only other directions we're going right now are into some more bog rebuilding/expansion work and some trucking. And it's fine about this weekend- I just got back from a family gathering in CT anyway.

    2brothers- right now I have a guy with a big lowbed who hauls our equipment around for us.

    Tom- I'm working on RT 28 on Cape Cod that goes from Bourne through Falmouth MA.

    Man does that new deere look sweet with your graphics on it. Is that additional counterweight mounted under the factory one?

    Thanks! And yes, that is an additional 1500lbs of counterweight mounted underneath the original one.

    So, would you buy another towmaster? I don't think i would. :laugh:

    How is the long stick and extra counterweight working out for you? Can you stretch it out to full reach with the head on? Do you think 2' less stick would limit you considerably? Have run out of crowd power digging or stumping?

    That's only 5 questions, i get another 15 right? Err, 14. :drinkup:
