    Lester,
    I understand I appreciate your honesty again I haven’t done this type of work before so I really don’t know my truck sits for a few months sometimes but now I’ve got an opportunity to go make some money with it the only thing I think about is I do have to do maintenance and take care of it.
    Thank you

    It is I know your right. This is a new part I am entertaining on doing normally I just use it once a day for about an hour I haven’t used it six or seven times a day for eight hours so that’s why I was thinking more per hour thank you for your response

    Well when you are using the truck for whatever your normal work is, what kind of money do you make per day? I assume you are in the tree business. Assume you take down a big tree what kind of money do you like to make per day?

    Lester,
    On a normal day it is on the low in per hour rate. But when I have to do storm clean up or Hazzard trees all day or huge wind storms it is higher per hour. So this to me I would think is considered high end storm damage. That means it is not a normal day and to expect surprises and you don't have a slow pace it is fast pace. Which I like day goes by fast but your equipment is working even faster.
    Thank you for replying.
