    Here they are, let us know what you think. The box truck is going in on Wednesday for lettering, and we are working on the dump.

    Thanks guys!

    Alarsh: We do it all, landscape install/construction, maintenance, and even erosion/drain control. The dump will be used to hall debris, trees, rock, soil (only about 5 yards) planting material, etc. It will be fitted with a switch-n-go hopefully in a few months to make it even more versatile so we can mount a huge leaf vacuum, hydroseeder, mulch blower etc in the future.

    Mcwlandscaping:

    Thanks! Black is a bear to keep clean, but its very classy and elegant looking, we love it.

    It is indeed a super lawn truck.


    Mulcahy Mowing:
    Thanks man, the truck is an 06 GMC(isuzu) NPR purchased brand new and sent to SLT to have it all retrofitted. We opted for the 40g gas tank and the 14g mixed fuel tank, maximizer side door, and some other options I forget. I ordered all green touch enclosed trailer holders for the inside which should be here very soon. Cant wait to get things organized in there.

    The dump is an 02 Isuzu NQR with a gvw of 18,500 pounds. The dump is custom built 14'x5' high with tarp and area above cab for wheel barrows. Truck has 130k on it, but is in excellent shape.

    LawnInOrder:

    All in all the SLT ended up setting us back about 57k. A lot of ppl gawk at the price, but to us its very worth it. IT has already set us way apart from our competition. PPL at gas stations always walk up and talk to us about it. Every customer we have had has specifically come out and mentioned it. This is the exact kind of attention we were looking for. Not to mention its so nice and efficient and an absolute pleasure to drive. Our high end customers are proud to see it parked outside of their houses, and our high end condos/apartments love to see it and lots of compliments there as well.

    This is what it will look like when it goes in on Wednesday for stickers, or course they wont be crooked =).
