we have 4 everrides. and love them very much. they have been good to us
we have three kubotas, five standers , three zsprays(one on the way) and a velke walkbehind, oh yeah, the honda 21".
That your place or do you just work there?
And I was under the impression that your biz was just your dad and you! Guess not!
Definately nice, but it looks like you need more room,lol.
During the summer, do they leave the equipment on the trailers and back them in the shop and leave the trucks out, or do the trailers get unloaded and unhooked every afternoon? I think the Ideal set-up is a long shop that can hold the truck and trailer hooked up with room in the back to drop the gate and run equipment on/off.
Thats very impressive and a ton of mowers for just 3 crews!! Once thing though, go buy a new camera, $100k's of equipment but but a pos camera lol
yeah, just took the pics on the fly, i have a real camera!!!!!
we unload every night. leave the trailers connected most of the time. the shop is drive through, door on both sides and a side lot gate too. so we pull in and unload and then drive through to the lot. works really great.
we custom designed the shop and built it 4 or 5 years ago.
yes, this company is owned by my dad and me, him first though. i have done this for like 15 yrs.
never thought we would have no room left. thsi year we are getting more storage for out back to house the fert ,
why do you choose to unload every night? That must eat up atleast one hour a day per crew so roughly = 15hrs a week with a 3 man crew
why would you leave your high dollor equipment outside to get rained on and such!?!?
it takes like 5 mins to unload a trailer and such, no time at all.
um you would buy an enclosed trailer....I don't know many large companies that still use open trailers for maintenance just because of how much time gets eaten up by just simply loading/unloading everyday.
5 mins, really....well I'm not going to argue with you but I can garuantee you it takes you more time then that. I know, I have a open trailer and I also worked for a large company that had one open and three enclosed trailers. The guys with the encloseds pulled out way before the other guys did......
To each his own, I just know thats gotta eat a lot into payroll.
