    Thank you!...Can't wait to get it all lettered up & put it to work.

    Here is a link to a video we just made. We had a local video company make this one. It's pretty good...but we are going to be making some changes to it in the coming weeks. Changing the music, adding video of our new hydroseeder etc.

    You can check out what we have so far...

    Hey Chris congrats on the new seeder!

    Have you had any problems with the auger agitation? We have a 500 gallon turbo turf seeder that's jet agitated and have always wondered about the auger. The only problem with ours is having to break up the bails relatively fine before hand. Not really efficient especially on the 10,000+ sq. ft. jobs where your mixing a couple times.

    Here are a few quick pics...

    The first is a pic of one of our Ultra Vacs...as you all know they take such a beating and are expensive to replace the housings with new parts every time they wear out. We take old lawn mower blades & reinforce the housing on the inside & outside, so it's basically 2 blades thick with reinforced steel. It works great & REALLY extends the life of the housings from tearing apart.

    The second is just a pic of us sharpening up the hedge trimmers for spring...

    Here are a few pics of getting our mowing trailer ready for spring...new paint & fixing up the ramp door. We usually have to replace the wood on the ramp & at least half of the wood inside the trailer each winter.

    Here is one more of the trailer floor paint. We actually lay down a coarse sand on the ramp & floor prior to painting for traction. We paint right over the sand & it dries right in with the paint & is not noticeable. It doesn't provide perfect traction, but it's better than nothing.
