It is all starting to come together!!! Last week we picked up our new Hydromulcher, a Turfmaker 900. After the rain stopped this week we got out and got some ground prepped and started shooting. Wow!! What a machine. I am so impressed with this machine. I can't believe what it is capable of. The thing is a horse, strong as an ox. We started our biz 3 years ago and have done maintenance and small landscaping gigs. Never really thought about going big until an excavating company called us last fall and asked if we would be interested in doing some work for them the following spring (they got our number from one of our old, very respected customers). So we gave them the aw shucks, what you got in mind routine. To make a long story short they wanted us to hydroseed for them. We started looking around at different machines. This, by far, was the hardest thing about the entire process. I hate salespeople. Drive me up the wall. We compared by price, agitation process, and service. We tried a number of machines. The long and the short of this one is, don't even bother looking at a jet agitation machine. They are cheap for a reason. You will hate yourself for ever even considering one. We settled on the Turfmaker. Great machine and the people are very easy to work with. When we purchased our first ZTR I thought that it was the best investment we could have possibly made. Not even close now. This is, hands down, the best investment we could have possibly even considered. With the work we have lined up the machine is going to be paid off in about 2 weeks. Man, I am so pumped I can't even stand it!! :blob3: I would go out and do cartwheels but I am way too old and arthritic!!
