The latest addition to our fleet - our Ford F250 pickup
This is a 1997 Ford F250 Super Cab. It will be our primary work horse.
It has a 7 1/2 foot Fisher Minute-Mount snow plow (see below.) Without the blade attached, you can't even tell it plows.
The passenger side was custom-fitted with a step to make entry and exit easier.
This truck has a heavy-duty receiver hitch.
Our Ford dump truck
Front of dump truck showing plow frame for 9' Diamond plow (see below.)
When equipped with the 9' blade, this truck can plow roads as big as the Lowell Connector.
It is also well suited to small roads and parking lots. It can also hold up to 7 yards of
bark mulch or 3 yards of loam.

fits. The rear doors are hinged and swing out easily for dumping debris, or loading
and dumping loam, bark mulch, etc.

One of our trailers
This trailer has some history to it. It was given to me by one of my first customers. Actually she gave me an old camper chassis.
All it had was a metal frame and wheels.
You see, she had two of them. One of them was converted into a snowmobile trailer for her and her husband. She wasn't using
this one and she asked if I wanted it. I said I could probably convert it into a landscaping trailer at some point, but couldn't offer her
any money for it.
She said, "Just take it." So I did. it sat in my side yard for a couple of years, then I finally decided I had a use for it - and the
trailer you see here was born.
It has hinged side and rear gates for access in a variety of settings, several tubes for hand tools, a hose reel, and of course, lights.
It is made of pressure-treated wood so it won't rot. It has been in continuous use for about six years now.
The discharge tube is 8 inches in diameter (that's right, NOT circumference) and fits
into the hole in back of the dump truck (above)
The intake hose is 12 inches in diameter, capable of sucking up leaves, small sticks,
pine cones, and more.
The motor is 20 hp, making it capable of making full use of
the large intake and discharge hoses.

This is a 7 1/2 foot Fisher Minute-Mount plow that goes with our F250.
The 9 foot Diamond plow (yellow) is used to plow roads as big as the Lowell Connector,
as well as small roads and parking lots. The other blade is the Predator.
This is the Predator.
This is the ultimate in high-tech blades. It is 6 1/2 feet across. It uses a wireless controller.
There are no wires connecting the plow controller (right) with the blade.
This is the controller. Smaller than most TV remotes, the ability to place the controller
anywhere in the truck, combined with the trucks maneuverability, make it a better choice
for most residential applications, and in many cases, more efficient than a full size truck
with an 8 foot blade.
Our Nissan 4WD Pickup
Like the dump truck (above) this truck is always pulling, pushing, or carrying something.
When the Predator blade is not attached, it does not look like a plow truck. It is a real
workhorse. It even has AC electric power.
Another one of our trailers
This trailer has been modified with leaf springs capable of supporting a combined weight
of 4,000 lbs (though we have never tried to test this limit.)

Some other equipment
This is a Ferris dual-drive Hydrowalk walk-behind mower.
This is a Husqvarna 22" dethatcher with a 6.75 hp motor. Unlike drag-behind dethatchers
which some people use behind their lawn tractors, this machine does a more thorough job
than passive machines.
This is a rear view of the Ferris. The device hanging below the
handles is called a sulky. The sulky gives the mower the comfort of a riding mower,
the maneuverability of a walk-behind (you can operate it with the sulky hung up as it is
now) and increased safety (you can jump off in an emergency.) The silver-colored device
is an Accelerator aluminum grass catcher.
