    My thoughts on my equipment after two days of working it for the first time.
    #1 2 BR600M love them.
    #2 BG 13hp selfpropelled. It's a beast but on hills it will work you and tips very easy.
    #3 Trac vac loader 16hp VG. Better than I thought it would be a sucking up leafs but it is hard to mount and remove everytime I have to dump. It would be nice if the hose was about 5 feet longer. OH it's a hitch mount.
    #4 Jrco leaf plow. Great for making more room on the curbs and pushing leaves to the vac. Down side and the main reason I bought it was for pushing leaves down the driveways to the curbs. After about 50 feet alot of the leaves go out the sides. Might box it in like a plow box on a skid steer.
    #5 EZ dumper. Love it.
    #6 My poor old 1998 chevy 1500 z71 LB. I can't complain it just hit 200,000 this weekend. Working it to death with the dumper, 6.5 X12 slightly over loaded trailer all summer long.

    Working half days all week long and doing leaves from 9 till dark. Getting up at 3:45 everyday is gonna kill me by friday. Need some prayers!!:waving:
