    Before that i had a Craftsman trimmer and no blower but since that trimmer only lasted a summer i was smart enought invest in commercial equipment starting then. My first purchase was a RedMax backpack blower which cost $430. I bought it at the end of summer for leaf cleanups. I remember the day my dad stopped at the dealer for me on his way home from work and picked it up. Then for some reason i told a girl at school i had to pay my dad $400 bucks for something he picked up for me and paid with his credit card because i didn't have one. She thought i was crazy and couldn't imagine why i'd be spending $400 bucks on a tool at such a young age. If only she knew where it's taken me, lol.
    I cut that with my Little Wonder walk behind power edger. You can get those trash barrells at Home Depot for $50 each. They are very durable and usefull though. I have 6 of them.
    Yes it was a gift from God. I paid just over 7k plus $199 for the catcher.
    Thanks, I've noticed you've been expanding steadily.
    Yeah i like your way of thinking!
    I will keep posting pics, thanks for the compliments.
    Haha yup i'm done discussing trash cans.

    I noticed your lawn sings. What are they made of and how well do they help up? Thinking of getting some and noticed yours.

    THey are made of corugated plastic. Very durable and weather proof. I have 17 of them. Here's a pic with part of the sign in it.

    How far off are you from buying yourself a brand new truck, one like your dads? My neighbor bought a brand new truck when he got out of high school but that was 30 years ago, and he keeps bugging me about me buying a brand new truck, but that ain't gonna happen, but you seem to be doing fairly well.

    I'd like to keep my truck i have and get a 1 ton dump truck. Hopefully before next summer. I need to get one but also need to be able to afford it and support the cost of owning one.
