    The shop was constructed this fall, its 40x64x14.

    Currently we run one crew of 2 men mowing, usually 40-60 hours a week, depending on the season. We have another hardscape/landscape crew. We have a 20' trailer for the maintenance crew, a 16' Enclosed, which is where most of the landscape/hardscape tools are. We also install irrigation and have parts bins for all the irrigation supplies. We also have a 16' gooseneck dump trailer, and a 18' trailer for the L185 skid. We can just fit the skid, harley rake, and a bucket on the 18 footer, but that is overweight so we put the harley rake in the dump trailer.

    The Exmarks are a 56/28 Kohler, a 36/15 Kawasaki Turf Tracer HP, and a 36/15 Kohler Metro. All Shindaiwa handheld equipment. During the season we also have a dump insert in the reg. cab chevy for the maintenance crew.

    Very nice setup! That shop looks real organized and brand new. Hey just out of curiosity how much does a shop of that size typically run. without the cost of the land factored in? I understand if you dont want to say but I was wondering how much coin I am looking at dropping sometime in the future for something similar to that.

    But congrats on the nice setup! :drinkup:

    why do you have 2 36 inch mowers and not 2 52 inch riders and not just one 36 inch
