    What is more out of place a 460 gravely on a residental lawn 65' wide x 75' or a gravely HD60 To the actual home owner the 460. This is why it's home owner junk to you
    Here is my reasoning , a gravely hd 44" is commercial enough
    It has the same every thing as their commercial compact 44" except the engine and I mean everything

    So then I looked at the 60" which is exactly the same as that commercial 44" except the engine again

    My conclusion : if it's the same then why spend more for the same machine so we save money , now small lawns and wear them out.
    As for the trucks , what trucks are junk that I still run are you speaking of?

    You can't benefit from a commercial machine if your current machines preform to your needs and expectations .

    Go back and read this thread , it's a lot less then 4500 now.
    And is it really when I had 100 plus men talking every spring in different towns of the state, come on.

    A few weeks ago I had 7 phones handling 40 calls each a day. Just understand with the area of service 4600 is not 10000th/1% of the population

    It is like this if you care to rationalize it
    If you had a cheap rig and you started a 2 man crew
    When this crew secured 45-50 accounts you create another
    Cheap crew ....then each crew
    Grows at its own pace to reach a
    Goal of a full schedule.

    This is all I did for years, find work and give it to a
    crew

    No idea what fleet picture your talking about, but no just because it sits in a field and grass grows around it most days of a year. We use it to haul the farm large equipment, pick up / deliver pallets of supplies for jobs and leaf cleanup work

    Posted via Mobile Device In just over 12 months?

    I find it highly suspicious as you seem to just make everything you post up as you go? Whats the story here?

    Here it is . 02:09 PM 04-19-2014 35DollarLawns (Tennessee/Greater Nashville area way south - 782 posts) Ok so I have got our new numbers so now it is time to start over.
    27 trucks
    19 mowing
    2 landscape install
    2 chemical
    3 fertilize
    1 tree
    67 men total
    1877 maintenance accounts and 700 additional fall clients.

    I have a feeling I will be needing 4-5 more trucks to be able to split crews when playing catch up, time will tell.
    I think the weed control is in trouble.

    Someone said took to the cleaners,
    It appears I am low in support trucks ....

    Ieveryone here knows I am the same guy as extremelawncare and XLS. I have always stated large size.
    It is also know I create a crew and give it a name property perfect is just one.
    It has nothing to do with being small As a company only the property perfect name.
    I was trying to start over here and post pics building to a question from you guys like " dang how big are you man you have like added 30 mowers this year

    That was my true intentions as under extreme I couldn't
    Post pics at all to here, it took Donovan explaining why with e-mail and photobucket I could post stuff.

    Before I could start posting a member found out I was extreme and ever since its been interesting.
