    I'm a little piles guy. I like raking but don't want to move the sticks any farther than I have to. Go from pile to pile with the trash can and your outta there. My two man crew partner hates raking he'd rather just waste gas and blow every spec of crud toward the chipper with the backpack to ech their own

    mid-west and the ash borer is a big concern for a lot of my customers I know he could help with that. that's what he gets paid now and I can live on that till we get well established. (no stump grinder, small chipper, no GRCS, no loader) I think with his help and added capital we could do some damage in 2015.
