    I give you guys credit that have to haul leaves. That is an impressive set-up. I am glad I don't haul any leaves. Just grind them or push them to the curb for the city pick up. Leaf season is a coming.

    They have decided to add a $90 k Vac truck to the citys equipment in our town so I am curious how it will effect us this year. In other towns we have seen drops in the "cleanup only accounts" for a year or 2 before they start comming back to us.
    There is always an edge when you can clean them up the day they ask for it other then 3 weeks later.
    We shall see

    the one we built 4 yrs ago we still use, like (cuttin to the max) says build it like a house the first time and you wont have any problems,
    after building mine w/ pressure treated wood I gave it about 3 coats of paint, still looks good

    I put a box on my trailer this year instead of my truck. I have been doing alot of hunting and need my truck bed. With the box om my trailer I can only haul one mower and well today that mower broke down on me and I was 25 minutes away from my house and I had to come back and get my other mower in the middle of doing a clean up.
