    Hi everybody,
    This is my rig. Still in school so I have to deal with a little budget. Last summer I had 110 acounts, about 60 residentials and 50 commercials from 6000 square feet to 8 acres. I'm also doing detatching, aerating, sod install, edging and parking lot sweeping. I have 1 full time and 1 part time guy in the summer.

    Wow nice setup. How does the F-150 tow?

    For the leaf I used to dump in the bed of the truck and unload it with shovels but I will definitely have to rethink a better way... We had to dump 2 times a day and it was a pain. The F150 tow great for a 1/2 ton. I tried a 2007 chevy 2500 duramax last summer and its definitely not in the same league but the price is not too...:) I demoed the cub cadet last summer. One was 60" diesel and the other 72" gas. Very nice mowers...but I only have pics of the 60" diesel.

    I don't think that I'm ahead of the game. It will be my fourth season this year. The first year I started I got 30 accounts from a guy that was leaving lawncare. The next year A big one in my area leaved all his residentials accounts. I think that timing was good. I'm not the most expensive but I'm really not the lowballer in my area. I figure that I'm in the middle and I'm going to increase my price to be in the high end when I will have what I want... Business is not easy here!

    Can you show a picture of the back half of your trailer? It appears that you have removed the rails past the fenders, like I had to do to mine in order to fit our 72in kubota.
