    I just had a bad day

    Well my day today wasn't so good.

    The bolts that hold the rod that holds my cab up fell off and the rod too and the cab of the tractor went flying on the road. Now I realised I need a new cab..

    Also tonight.. i went to finish off the lawn at the local lumber yard and I was running the trimmer and for some reason I made sure I was facing away the window and i turn around.. next thing you know the #### thing was shattered

    Good thing I am now insured

    Finally got all my parts for the cab that broke long time ago since I started this thread.

    I have been running my machine without a cab until now

    Looks like new

    I currently don't accept accounts with gates unless I can get my 52" zt through. I hate doing them with a push mower. Not just the heat, but when walking the lawns all day you are bound to get into fire ants or snakes down here.
    Haha...that sucks. I would not want to run into snakes on the job. We had a bear somehow wander into the city the other day, I don't know how it got here, since the mountains are across an inlet from us. Worst we've got are some crazy squirrels and coyotes.

    Quote[/b] (UniversityLandscapers @ May 16 2008,12:08)]I'm getting a new mower in the near future, and I'm getting a real commercial grade one since I'm tired of dealing with this low end Home Depot junk. Gonna go Honda or Toro, just gotta compare prices.
    Carefull man, I haven't seen any commercial grade honda mowers & very few toros, Mostly homeowner z's. A good rule of thumb seems to be if the deck is thick steel & welded together It's a heavier grade machine.... If its stamped out of one piece of sheet metal it's that same home depot grade crappola. (just a way to tell at first glance)
    I'm going for 21" walk behinds, since nothing around here is big enough to need anything else. I went into my local shop to look at Toros and Snappers, and the Toro was $1,500 (the highest model with the blade brake clutch) and the Snapper was $1,000. I haven't done any reading into Snapper and still have to stop by the Honda dealer to check them out.

    If this is any incentive, every sunday we charge our weekly accounts for their services for the week...

    by tuesday, a deposit of about $2900.00 goes in the account... dont have to worry bout payroll!!!

    yeah, It's good though. I've more than doubled my average daily gross (with a helper) & left me more time to get to new estimates/customers right away (picked up 5 this week/3 today).

    The lag does stink though.... We did alot of work this week & invoiced a good amount. But now I have to cut that payroll check prior to the money rollin' in for it.... I think your paperless system maybe just around the corner for me dude.

    Yeah, I hear ya. I'm tired It's been a long week.
    Have a helper 3 days a week I though would lightn the work load (& it kinda does) but we're just getting more done now. (That's a good thing) So I had help mon-wed, had a 6 hr course & test on Fertilization on thurs then did admin office work thurs afternoon... & wen't out alone today from about 8 am til 7 pm.
    Then washed the truck & trailer (muddy from going to the landfill 4 times this week)
    It's been a long week man.
