    I was thinking about doing that with my F250 if I don't sell it or trade it lol.... It would be a good way to get things going.....

    I was thinking about just getting a truck like lowes rents out and doing that. And also renting dump trailers (and selling them lol)...

    I have big plans and hopefully they will end up putting me in a position to have a thread like this!.... oh well I can dream lol.

    Just curious if you have such a big seeder what do you do when you get a call for a small residential job between 5 and 10 thousand sq ft?

    We can load on site with our Bobcat...it's just tall enough since it's an A300, I don't think we could with a smaller S185 sized machine.

    Starting to mulch on March 3rd...daamn...you guys don't waste any time!!

    We have 4 full time year round. In season we have closer to 10 full time, this season probably slightly more.

    Sounds like you don't like loading onsite??
    Yeah we are located in akron, ohio aka northeast ohio so we start in southern ohio in Cincinnati and worl our way north to columbus then by april we are back in akron we have over 2000 yards to do in columbus and cincinnati before we put a single yard in akron. It exstense our season by over a month so its nice plus the Finn factory is located in cincinnati so incase any problems we are right there.
    Are you still able to go out and work or are you more in the office and doing estimates? If you still are what's your favorite thing to do out in the field?
    They are callin for snow here tonight so we will see

    Proturf, I like the new hydro truck. Looks to be a really productive unit. I was surfing the web and stumbled across a web site with your old one on it. Are you going to do the same lettering scheme on the new one?

    If we have smaller jobs like that we try to schedule them all on the same day so we can mix a full tank. If we do have to spray just a 5k sq/ft job one day we will just mix up a half tank & it all comes out the same as if we mix up a full tank.
