We just got in a couple of brand new Z700 mowers from Kubota and we’re excited to get them out in the field this season. They’re brand new to the market and have a whole slew of new features all designed to maximize the operator experience. They still have all the hallmarks of Kubota mowers: smooth and stable operation, quality-built mower decks, easy maintenance – but they’ve expanded the amenities to include things like a deck height adjustment dial, wider operator platform, tool box and an easy-to-read, ergonomic instrument panel. It’s a commercial mower that can handle a hard days work without going hard on your operator. Continue reading
We get the question “what’s included in your $99 customized inspection?” from customers a lot, so instead of listing everything off, we thought we’d show you instead:
Once we do a complete rundown of your machine we’ll give you a checklist of things that need attention. Think of it as a report card for your equipment! We run inspections on all types and brands, from skid steers to excavators to riding mowers. If your machine needs maintenance this is the cheapest, most effective way to address those issues because you’ll know exactly what needs attention and YOU decide what you want fixed.
To book a $99 inspection give our service team a call at any of our locations. Get it booked and get your machine ready to roll! Continue reading
It’s time for spring maintenance! Those skid steers and wheel loaders have been running overtime all winter and you can bet the filters took a beating. If you’ve been keeping up with the scheduled maintenance (and you wouldn’t skip on that now, would you?) then you know the extra winter hours put on the machine have bumped up the service schedule.
Lucky for you now is the perfect time to stock up on replacement filters because we’re knocking 20% OFF the price of a complete set of New Holland filters. This goes for any piece of New Holland equipment so we’re talking skid steers, track loaders, backhoes, wheel loaders, excavators – you name it! Get stocked, save money and get set for spring.
Offer expires March 31, 2014. Contact the store nearest you to order!

Big News! Scag’s V-Ride fleet pricing offer has been extended through the month of March! We’re hitting prime time for mower buying so don’t miss out this month.
Scag wants to give you a jump-start on spring with a special offer on V-Ride mowers. This special was a big hit last year and now it’s back by popular demand!
V-Ride mowers are designed to give you the production of a full-sized riding mower in a package that’s more compact and agile than a rider. The stander mower can handle the big jobs, with deck sizes ranging from 36 – 61 inches, but can also maneuver in tight spaces with ease. With a reduced trailer footprint you can also transport more mowers out into the field for even greater productivity.
Normally fleet pricing is reserved for multi-unit purchases, but this month we’re going to give you the discount regardless of how many you buy! Buy just one mower and still save the big bucks! Don’t wait, though – offer is good while supplies last and expires
February 28, 2014 March 31, 2014. For more info on the V-Ride or any Scag mower give us a call at any of our locations. Continue reading
It’s back by popular demand, and it’s going to be better than ever! Just last March we hosted a pair of Finn open houses at our Orland Park and South Elgin stores and the turnout was so great we’re bringing them back again! Just like last year we’ll have our expert Finn reps on hand with the latest equipment Finn has to offer and we’ll be giving hands-on demos and operator training. Watching bark blowers and hydroseeders up close in action is a great way to learn for those new to the Finn line and those familiar with it will enjoy the chance to speak directly to the Finn folks who know these machines like the back of their hands.
The first open house will be in Orland Park on Wednesday, March 19th and the South Elgin session will happen the next day – Thursday March 20th. RSVP to the Orland Park open house HERE or the South Elgin session HERE. Let us know your name, company and how many people you plan on bringing to the event. Registration will begin at 9am, activities at 9:30. We’ll be done for the day around 12:30 and we’re serving lunch!
The deadline to RSVP is Friday March 14th so be sure to get in before that! We’re expecting a big turnout again this year so get your spot reserved and get ready for a great open house. Continue reading
Here comes spring! Well…almost. March is in the 10 day forecast so we’re getting set for landscape season and that means filling orders for bark blower rentals. We’ve carried Finn bark blowers for years and we just keep adding more and more of them. The BB302 is our most popular bark blower, but last year Finn introduced the BB5-Series with a larger hopper capacity and a beefed up design, which has been great for customers looking to take on larger installations.

This recent snow combined with higher temps has left us a little soggy today, and with rain in tomorrow’s forecast there’s potential for flooding. The frozen ground is going to have a hard time absorbing all that water so water pumps are going to be a life saver if that water finds its way into your job site (or basement). We’ve got trusty water pumps in stock for sale and for rent with brands like Honda and Wacker, and they range in size from 1 to 4 inches so you’ve got options depending on the job size.
Total Landscape Care ran an article this month encouraging green industry businesses to use LinkedIn to its full potential. That got us thinking, how many of our customers are on LinkedIn? How many companies have set up their business page? Getting started on a new social network seems intimidating at first, but it’s easy to get up and going once you decide to jump in. Continue reading
Last week we got to take part in the inaugural iLandscape show in Schaumburg. It served as a replacement for the old Mid-Am Show (which called it quits after many years) and after a slow first day thanks to another lovely snow storm the convention really kicked into high gear. We saw lots of familiar faces and met a lot of new ones that we’re excited to work with. Overall the green industry seems optimistic and excited about what the upcoming season has in store.
