    some of the boys decide ,this aint the way to make a living.
    sometimes you can just take over payments and be doing the guy a favor.

    Very little used equipment available here in western NY, at least so far. But with this draught, who knows? Could cause a lot of people to re-think this business.

    There ain't much in hickory for sale for a good price. I have been told toward charlotte there may be some things for sale for a good price. I heard a lot of lawn services are going out in that area.

    I have read this stuff about the established LCO opportunist buying out the overextended scrubs at a pittance of the original price for their equipment.

    if it's this way where you live then fine.

    but this buzzard cleaning of the gut wagon of scrubs doesn't happen in my area.

    I for one am ready for the feast if it ever happens but I haven't seen it in five years now.

    how about all you buzzards posting about your purchases?

    hey nc big daddy,

    That is what someone told me. A lawn service buddy just said that around lake norman area there were some going out. I guess he was a bad source.
