  • the worst 3 days ever

    where do i start monday my mower that i use every day broke thats in the shop with a 1000.00 dollar repair bill.
    then as im pulling my trailer i hit the brakes in my truck and blew out the rear brakes and brake fluid went every where.
    so now i have to use my wifes truck unable to pull my 24 foot trailer i hook up to my older 14 foot trailer and as im loading up my mower the rear hinge breaks off. so now i have to put a jack stand under the ramp to load and unload.
    so i finally get to the first yard to mow get 60% done and my deck belt breaks so i call every store for 100 miles and no one has one.
    now that i have a broken truck,trailer,2 mowers i have to rent a ztr and omg it would be cheaper just to buy a new one.

    Things tend to break on Mondays. Not sure why that is.

      You need backups for your backups and backups for those TOO!

      Sucks. Hope things turn around soon.



      I'm starting to look into getting another mower for this reason. I do have a backup now, but I don't know that I want to rely on it when it's go-time.

        That sux. I blew a deck belt off mine on Monday. Had to pack up and go home. It was pretty easy fix once I was able to get the belt. Cost me a few hours. Not as bad as your situation tho. Sorry to hear that.

          When I use backup equipment, I am nothing but stressed lol... I feel like there is a bomb strapped to my equipment, one wrong move and BOOM - completely f'd!

            I am sorry about that.

            What happened to the mower? Did you find out?

                    I am 2 weeks in to a new job in a completely different field. It has been wonderful. While I still have the stress of management I dont have to sweat anything else. And I now work 5 minutes from my house. I loved running my own business, but I am pretty happy now.

                    They dont pay taxes, dont have insurance and steal equipment from honest companies. Thankfully for you and others gas have gone down a bit, that was my largest expense last year.

                    Good luck, hopefully the rest of the week goes well.
