    Right on, I misinterpertated it :)

    Anyway, yes price is firm. Best I could do is throw in the trimmer racks with the trailer, locks on the doors and the lock on the toung.

    Cant we all just get along. :) think everyone is getting a little up tight cuz of this wounderfull snow filled winter that we have not had. Man i would take a mulch job ar a clean up right now but snowa on the ground and all the clean ups are done or the ground is just way to soft (saturated). Like Mark saide Camlands coment wasnt made twoards anyone. he was just stating a fact. All these fly by nighters i got under bud on 4 large jobs b/c of them and you know why they were including salt in their seasonal price witch adoing that you loss big time like in december we had up to 13 saltings on some of our acounts. It those guys i think he was talking about but hey its america and everyone has a right to make a buck i guess. but thats were i lost most of my big money makers too but i have also pick up some work cuz of these guys. pick up three from one cantract. they guys wife ran into a truck in the lot, smashed a split rail fence, plowed up flower bed, sod sprinkler heads you name it he hit. but any way good luck to everone sit back and relax if its ment to be it will happen if its not i think a lot of us will be hurtting but thats just my thoughts.

    Look at it this way... with no snow we get to give our body and mind a rest. We work all summer, we need the break. And if you dont have any money, maybe its time to review your pricing! Charge more and you wont be worrying about money in the winter.

    I hate single stage blowers, every one I've ever used was crap. Plus they don't hold up as well with deeper snows. Personal bias.
