Default took this pic today.

It was a beautiful day today here in Texas.

You can see the Cub Cadet LTX1045, and my new baby The Gravely 34Z
its awesome, I feel like I had another baby.

my friends give me a lot of slack over my brand new 88 Ford F150 All power everything cold ac, hot heater so I love it.
and its my personal rebuild, new motor, new interior Ill paint it this summer.
Going for a green and white two tone with the KDVandCO and my number as big as I can get it on there.

I use two trimmers one is a stihl fs85 and the other an Echo srm210,An echo stick edger,and an Echo hedge trimmers to go with the
cub cadet back pack blower that I plan on selling for what ever I can for money towards a new Echo back pack blower with the power I need!



I started with my dads old truck, two push mowers and a junk weed eater about 4 years ago, soon after I bought the trailer for 200 did about 300 dollars worth of gate, lights, tires, and metal to keep debris in and a sign. I then paid cash 700 bux for a craftsman 33 inch walk behind from my earnings. after about two seasons with it I sold it for 600 and bought the Cub Cadet that I tried to give a way in the FootBall [I]POOL[/i][ No one won it so it stays put for now, although the first 800 can take it(only has 32hours on it)
I just bought it last year and since 90 percent of my yards are residential, I decided it was to big and purchased the gravely with about 150hrs from a guy who decided to quit the business after only 2 seasons.he was doing it as a second part time job as he is a Fire fighter. I tell pp I put him out of business and bought him out!truth is He actually makes alot more money working one day overtime than 2 days mowing
. I was lucky to get it how I did, He bought it brand spanking knew for over 4500, and gave it to me for 2000.

That is a very nice setup you have there!

Is there anything on your future purchase list that is coming up?

Default new back pack blower

the one I have was ok for the first few seasons. But as it gets older its lost power and getting harder and harder to start. After using an Echo one of my fellow landscapers is using Ive decided thats where im going. 200 bux on craigslist is my budget. not till at least spring time, maybe theres enough leaves on the ground to cover that expense.

Hey! I'm running an '86 F-150 right now.

I sure wish the grass up here had some green in it. We're still buried under snow with Spring looking far, far away. I've used Echo backpacks quite a bit, and they sure are powerful, but the Stihl's are almost identical in power and start much, MUCH easier.
