    Thanks, i really try to keep it clean. I think i may get smaller fender flares though. I ordered the smaller ones and these came. They stick out a good 3". I was going for the power wagon look.

    The cab lights are recon smoked LED amber lights. They cost me 60 for the light and around 10-15 dollars for hardware and sylicon to seal. My friend actually did the install for me for free which was really nice.

    I LOVE CHRISTMAST LIGHTS. Honestly i enjoy it soo much and i love christmas. I love driving by the house and seeing the rest of the street and how crappy it looks.

    I really want to increase sales of christmas lights. Or get another employee to do all fall clean ups and i just do pure christmas lights.

    Idk why but my billy goat always slilps out of full throttle and then that is when the discharge shoot clogs , right above the impeller. Litterally still in the housing. It has been a problem all year and i was so sick of it, i tarped the last house we did and took it to the dealer.

    SPrinkler systems: I started researching and honestly started by 'fixing' / expirimenting with my cottages sprinkler system. it is a lake pump irrigation system and is similar to a golf coarse,it shoots water at 115 gpm and around 75 psi. Its 2" pipe and 25 rotors in each 3 zones watering around 4 acres in 45 minutes. We have 3 misting zones with 40 heads going in all flower beds, and out by the 400 feet of road and along driveway. My grandpa installed it himself around 15 years ago so it breaks a lot so me and my uncle have to fix them and i learned by fixing them. Sprinklers are honestly really easy to do and basic plumbing skills. You have to match precipitation rates to each zone so no over or under watering occurs and also use the same type of head in each zone(dont mix impact rotors with pop up misting heads) ALso designing is a huge part too. Design it on paper so you use efficent supplies location of valve boxes, sprinkler heads, and main lines.

    If you have any more questions pm me and i will go more into detail

    haha. I agree there are a lot of unintentional zig zag's that are supposed to be stripes. But there are also a fair share of great stripes(just cut in the same direction to many times which i DO NOT DO. haha. Nothing looks worse than stripes burnt into the grass. Different every week is key

    I agree nothing looks worse than stripes burnt into a lawn. This year with the drought you could tell when a company mowed the same direction week after week. You would see wheel marks getting burnt into the lawn. The same guys that burn stripes into a lawn are probably the same guys that scalp the crap out of lawns just because the customer wants it cut shorter. They dont understand that it is bad for the lawn.

    Exactly. There are many companies around me that cut the same direction every week the whole season. It almost looks like a bunch of speed bumps, thats prob the reason they dont cut in a different direction. All the ruts would bounce them out of their seat
