    I didn't....its not mine, but I can pretty much use that and the mini excavator, skid steer, stump grinder, hydroseeder, power seeder and dethatcher whenever I want, now that my dad is back to doing computer programming. the mower, trimmers, gas prunners, back packs, and ford and various hand tools are all mine bought and paid for, the heavy equipment is my dads but he doesn't use it much anymore he's getting out of the business. so I take advantage of it and use his stuff as much as possible which is a huge help, but still I can't keep his machines or dump truck very busy because there's alot of guys around that under bid me.

    I would like to have my own dump truck by next year, hopefully a 97 f350 diesel or maybe a newer truck like a 2000-03 7.3 or if things go really well an 08-09 or even brand new dump truck. but that's a very slim chance. the 97 is probably what I'll end up with if i even buy one that soon.

    I still get work but not much as far as excavation or grading and stuff. I just got 3 fall clean ups today that total over 1000 and I will do them all in 1 day easily. Not great but could be worse.

    Yah I picked it up today works great, just make sure you don't get the self propelled model not worth the coin for commercial use and do get the honda motor. I went with the 9hp honda
