How to DIY Build and Paint EZ-Dumper Walls on Ford F350 Super Duty

The dumper we are adding sides to is an EZ-dumper. We had our bed ripped off our Ford F350 and replaced w/ the EZ-Dumper. A custom frame was required, but that’s a different story. So this DIY is for an EZ-Dumper, but the same basic principle works w/ other dumpers.

I’m aware I may be going a bit overboard w/ this project. Most landscapers just throw up some boards and that’s it. I like to make things look good, and your truck and equipment is what people will see when you first pull up. So I like to make a good impression.

This DIY project was pretty easy. Just cut some boards stack ’em up and bolt ’em in place. I could not find any

DIY’s or how to’s on the net for dump walls, and even though it is easy some people might want a little direction.

So I got some boards, 2 X 4’s Hardware, paint and some tools. Then I started building. I’m very happy w/ the way it turned out. We did this project this past summer which is why I’m wearing short sleeves and have fully greened trees around in January. So We hope you enjoy this How to and learn something from it.

What You will need

  • -Truck w Dumper
  • -3 1/2 inch bolts (How many depends on how high and what size boards you use)
  • -1/2 inch nuts, lock washers and 1 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch washers (match bolts)
  • -20 ft of 2×4’s (depending on how high you want the sides)
  • -4 2×10’s 8ft long (This will depend on how long your bed is and how high you want the sides)
  • -pipe, bar clamps (optional, but helpful)
  • -Drill
  • -Driver

How to DIY tune up Backpack Leaf Blower 150BT Husqvarna by Cullins Service

The backpack leaf blower we are tuning up today is a Husqvarna 150BT Backpack Leaf Blower. But the techniques I will show you can apply to most leaf blowers.
Keeping your equipment in top shape is not only good for your equipment, but also good for your business. You want your blower to start up right away every time. These fairly cheap and quick steps can make life easier for you. A couple filters are cheaper to replace every once in a while than a new carburetor when debris gets clogged in it.

Take care of your equipment and they will take care of you.

What You will need:

-Backpack blower
-Spark Plug (check owners manual for correct part)
-Fuel Filter (check owners manual for correct part)
-Air Filter (check owners manual for correct part)
-Forceps, bent coat hanger or whatever you can find to safely get the fuel line and filter from the tank
-Socket wrench and socket or scrench tool (to remove spark plug)

DIY How to change oil on a stand behind mower the Wright Stander by Cullins Service

In business and life you should always protect your investments. In a  landscaping business your equipment in an investment. So that means you have to take care of them. When you get a new or used piece of equipment you should study or at least look at the owner’s manual. There is a maintenance section of that manual, and in that section is a time table for oil change maintenance. Oil changes are very important in all engines so change your oil. You need to check your oil after every use. Over time heat breaks down oil and the longer it’s in the engine the dirtier it gets. Depending on mowing conditions your mower is kicking up dust, dirt and debris this will make the oil dirtier and less effective sooner. When this happens the oil no longer lubricates the engine components.

The Mower we are giving an oil change to today is a 2015 36 inch Wright Stander Intensity. The techniques I will show you can apply to other similar mowers.

Between the first 5-10 hours of your engines life you should change the oil and oil filter.
With new engines changing the oil within the fist hours of operation is needed to flush out small particles that build up during the break-in period. Check your manual for regularly scheduled oil changes. They will vary from source and the conditions you put you mower through.
It’s best to check your oil regularly.
When you first pour the oil into the engine it’s a gold or amber color. Eventually heat, dirt and air in the crankcase will make the oil darker and less effective in lubricating engine components.
Check your oil and if it’s low or getting dark and nasty add oil or change it.
