    those are some really good looking photos. I love the black fords and the equipment behind them. What do you plan on doing with the pictures for marketing purposes?

    We have some shows coming up and some advertising publications for some organizations that we belong to that we are going to put our fleet pictures in.

    That sounds awesome. I'm sure you will get a lot of looks. What kind of shows do you participate in? What is your best form of marketing and does the majority of your work consist of?

    We go to a lot of tradeshows for different land-care based organizations in our area. Our work consists mostly of land clearing, followed by our mulch, then excavation and grading, and finally snow plowing.

    Andrew I have a couple of questions for you. What was your decision on a f550 over say a f650/750. And what was the decision to go away from the goose neck to a tag. Are you finding it easier to load with the lower hight

    Wow. You definitely give me something to strive for in building my company and my new endeavor in stormwater and erosion control. Keep up the great work.

    ssprtman- Don't worry, you won't find her there any more. She got a good work out today! You might be able to see her off of RT58 way out in the bogs now though...

    GQLL- We wanted a 550 because originally that was going to be a daily driver and a backup for the 450. Having to drive around in a 650/750 all day is a bit of a pain. Our trailer decision tied into the trucks we have too. Our gooseneck could only be moved by the 450, which was a problem when the 450 was not available. So for redundancy's sake we wanted a trailer that could be towed by any of our trucks. It didn't really have anything to do with ease of loading as both trailers are easy to load with our machines.

    Krazy- Thanks man! I really want to see how this business works out for you- that line of business has always interested me as well.

    Andrew- looking good. I went through Mass the other day was looking for you but probably not the area where you work 495 to 90 . A lot of tree damage in the Springfield area.

    Thanks Dylan. Ya, I think you missed my area of work by about 50 miles LOL! With all the storms and tornados that went through the Springfield area last year I think that they will be dealing with all that damage for a long time.
