    pro-turf is that colored mulch you are blowing on the hillside? What color do you guys call that ? One of my suppliers he called his blend hardwood cypress, it was really light brown, but he stopped carrying it this year and no one else knows what i'm talking about i have a bunch of jobs that i used that on, just looking to see what you guys may call it.

    I hear ya man, we've maybe done a little better than you. Maybe 8 or 9" total. We just got around 3 or 4" yesterday and that was the biggest storm so far this season. At least we got to push a little snow. I hope things chance for you though, and all of us for that matter.

    That color is called Hemlock...or a Hemlock blend in this area. It is the most popular mulch we use.

    Here's another pic of it...

    We designed them & had a friend build the shelving about 6 years ago. I do not know the exact dimensions. We laid out all of the boxes & product we typically would want to carry with us & designed the shelves around those measurements. We don't have an actual product list printed out that we use on a regular basis...every part in our trailer has it's part # on the bin so we know exactly what to order etc. It was alot of work designing & building it...but well worth the time & effort.

    cool man, thanks for the reply... Any info on a trencher would be good... buy Used or New? V Blade? What are your thoughts... price range too?

    Do you have any experience with any pipe pullers? We have always used a Dtich Witch 255...we have considered moving up to a 410, but every time we think about doing so there is always something else that needs to be purchased. We have not run many trenchers in our day...just a handful of times...and we've always rented them, so I do not have much feedback for you on those.

    As far as used or new and the price range that all depends on your financial situation. I'd love to run all brand new equipment...but my budget does not allow that to happen.
