Autumn here has been a real bust. No great color, most leaves just went brown and fell off.

That's pretty much what we get here. A few go yellow but mostly they just fall while still green or turn brown and fall during a windstorm.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

So you don't actually clean up, you just blow the leaves somewhere else for another person to deal with?:oops:

Nope. Use the blower to clear all the leaves out of flower beds, off patios and driveways, from around trees, etc. Send all the leaves onto the grass and run the lawnmower over them. It collects all the leaves and we dump them in the truck.

Autumn here is progressing slowly. Some trees are bare, some are in full colour, some are partially coloured, and lots are still green. It's been quite warm, so they're not all dropping their leaves at once.

We went from summer to bare winter trees overnight it seems. Very disappointing.

If I had a truck like this, I'd clean up leaves.

That's what I get to drive every day for work. Need something heavy duty to pull a loaded trailer all over the place, plus be able to load the bed with grass and leaves, or whatever else we get into. It's also used for ploughing snow in the winter.

So I notice you drive a RAM...
I think it is excellent writing and delivery.

I only drive a Ram because that's what the boss bought for a work truck. And it wasn't chosen because it's a Dodge, it was chosen because it's the only HD pickup truck that has a diesel that is decently easy to work on. First truck he bought was a GMC 1500, but it was too small for the job, and when it was totalled in an accident, he bought bigger. Next truck was an F250 diesel, but the engine work was super expensive, so it was sold when it needed major work. He bought this Dodge. It's a 2009 Ram 2500 with the Cummins diesel. The engine has been decently reliable. It's been through a few water pumps, some sensors and such, and I just recently replaced some coolant tubes. The transmission went on it less than two years ago. Fortunately, I have a friend who is an excellent transmission mechanic and he rebuilt it between snow storms. When it started showing signs of dying again, the boss found another transmission online that had been built with all the heavy duty options. He bought it for a really good price and replaced the old one. The old one is still around as a backup. With these trucks, when you're working them every single day, it's handy to have a spare transmission. When one goes down, it only takes a couple of hours, at max, to pull it and put the other one in. That way the truck is only out of commission for a short time. The transmission is much easier to deal with than a bad engine. What really sucks on these trucks is the electronics, especially when you try and add on things like snow plow lights.

And that commercial... it is well written, because it's a Paul Harvey recording. All of his stuff was well written. Dodge just hijacked it for a commercial.

Oh, and I own a 2012 GMC Sierra.
