    We started early last year. We were already into our second week of routes by now. I usually target the Monday closest to April 15th as the start date. Tha usually gives us about 29-30 weeks if we go into the second week of November.

    Us too. Im not worried it is what it is. Like u said it all averages out in the long run.

    lawnguy44 We do clean ups as were cutting our routes. We put it ll together also we do clean ups on a weekly to by weekly basis so we can keep up with the leaves. I wouldnt wait for everything to drop then try to do all clean ups, that wouldnt be logical and it would be time consuming

    Any one want to buy a 1991 chevy kodiak dump truck for spring? Has a gas engine, runs pretty good. If you can operate a 2spd rear it can haul some serious weight.

    Has a new dump box on it i paid 4,800 for. Has a 9' western plow on it i just paid 2,200 for.

    this would make a excellent plow truck with a perminent salter mounted on the back of it.

    I will sell it without the dump box if you like.

    make a offer.
