    Had something like that happen to us, we were mowing three houses in a row in a neighborhood and it was when RI had our little earth quake last summer. All three houses the silent alarms went off and the cops came, saw my guys at all three houses and then it was time for some explaining. Luckily a bunch of other ones were going off too so they figured they had nothing to do with it.

    Additionally, a 60" WB will blow a Z away on areas with a lot of obstacles or curves in beds, etc.

    I agree Ben, we run a WB and a Z on all our crews.

    lol, i would still use my trailer for mulch even if i had a dump truck, I can fit 8 yards on my trailer, where as a small mason dump can hold maybe 4-5.

    I literally only use the trailer for a few places that the mulch is spread out over a large area. For everything else i just have the mulch yard deliver it to the sites.

    fixed it for you! they hold more weight, can do 10 yards of mulch all day long, less maintenance, no insurance, cheaper registration. better longevity, cheaper to own, better resale. the list goes. but if he gets most of mulch delivered then it wouldn't be a great idea to buy a trailer that dumps, and if doesn't haul any leaves away might not be too useful, could be good for land clearing maybe, or chipping into not sure how much of that goldpro does though.

    You don't spray your lawns do you? If not do you sub that out to another company or what. I ask because all your lawns, from what I see, don't have any weeds.Sorry if its been asked, stuff looks good as always!
