    We use pro-slides for all of our WB's and will never go back. They are expensive to keep up, but when you ride on one for the first time its like being on a cloud. They smooth out all the bumps and holes so its a lot easier on your guys knees. They also play a huge part in a nice stripe!

    Jbell...we prob 80% of our stuff in house. When we have something that needs sandblasting we always send that out because we're not equipped for that type of work. If it's just a piece of equipment or a trailer we will usually paint it ourselves, if it's something we want to be a bit more presentable for the long haul we will send it out.

    Crider...we had an MT50 for a few years. That was our first machine from the Bobcat/skid steer family. Prior to purchasing that machine we did all of our work by hand/wheelbarrow. The MT50 made things MUCH nicer & definitely cut down on labor compared to doing it all by hand. It is a tracked machine, so you can easily damage turf when making turns if you are not very careful. We used that for about a year then bought a Bobcat 873...then eventually our A300. Once we stepped up to a full sized machine we rarely used our MT50 anymore. We kept it around for a few years for the occasional job that it would come in handy with, but eventually sold it due to lack of use. We did not have any maintenance issues with it, but the machine we had only had about 500 hrs on it so it was barely even broken in. So to summarize...an MT50 will be a night & day difference from the old wheelbarrow method, but we found a full sized skid steer to be night & day to the MT50.

    Good luck :usflag:
