    Did you guys do the blast and paint or hire someone? I want to do mine but don't know where to start.

    Also great little ex. What did that set you back?

    Hired someone. We did not have time to do it ourselves. Otherwise we would send it to get blasted and do the paint ourselves. We have a place that does blasting pretty cheap.

    We bought the mini through a Cat auction.

    It has been raining here for the last 4-5 days. I think last I heard we have had around 6 inches of rain so far. It is looking like nice weather starting tomorrow I hope.

    Couple Pics from last week. The weather here has been horrible. Our season started a month late and now it has rained 22 or 24 days of May. We are keeping up but it's not fun.
    The mowing guys are struggling with the rain for sure. Either way it looks like it is going to be a good year.

    Just some mulch.

    Nothing to exciting. How about you?
    We did just purchase a commercial property we will be moving into Sept 1. It will have offices, shop/warehouse/storage. A bit tight on outdoor storage but we will be creative and make due. I am excited about this. We office from one location right now with me doing most of my stuff at my home office and then all equipment is at another location/shop. I am confident things will go much smoother with everything in one location.
    We hired another guy to mow solo or with a partner depending on the week.
    Been trying to catch up a bit from the weather. Most of late May and June was rain I think 20+ days.
    Here are a few misc. pictures I had on my phone.

    Some irrigation going in.

    The hook truck is not ours. It is a friends. You can see that one and others alot in the winter pics hauling snow.
    We won't be in the shop till Sept. 1. It was part of the deal to sell it.

    Here is a pic from today getting mulch. Mulch supplier told me they will go through 300,000 yards this season.

    Some irrigation repair at a new account. It was not blown out completely and we had to replace 10 heads and 120' of pipe.

    Got a good deal on a stand up so I had to buy it. This is a friends place. Perfect for launching right from the yard to the lake. I try to get out there for a few hours on sundays.
