    Hello All

    I wanted to post my success.

    I started my venture in 1994. I was working as a maintenance man at a McDonalds Restaurant. I had a good friend how asked me what it would take for me to start a business. I told him find some work and I will be there. We started with some Dodge Dakota trucks, a borrowed 44" statesmen , and a 46" statesman that I received when I bought my home. We had a neighbor who gave us an old camper frame. We bought a $100 stick welder and some angle iron and made a landscape trailer. We took every dollar that we made and put it back into our Business. We now have the the following equipment and over 30 regular accounts. I encourage everyone to go forward with your dream!
