    OK the nut saga continues. Lawn vacs are out. Too much suggests these just wont work.....So today I demoed a billy goat blower. Did pretty good, but is time consuming. Im considering purchasing this, but am reluctant as It would largely sit idle. Soooooo,Im considering renting it out to guys in the area for leaf jobs etc.....

    Getting a cargo carrier fab upped so I can put the leaf loader on it. Don't want to hang it off the back of the newer trucks tailgate. We pretty much cut everything last week. Was going to go by everything this week, but decided that the customers might not like that. Probably end up doing about half the routes. Won't be long now and more leaves will be down. Trying to get mentally ready for them.

    Edit: Speaking of sucks, I hope the leaf loader does alot of that this year for some extra cash. lol

    Im still here in Ohio. Things fell thru with going south so I sucked it up and stayed. Glad I did now. Picked up a bunch of places from a guy who was downsizing. Got plenty of work, now if it would just stop raining!!! Things are going much much better now. Hopefully I will continue on the upward trend of things.

    Whats this mess I have been hearing about with the puco numbers and smaller trucks??
