Default My new career

Today (8/15/11) was my first day.. the last guy my boss had screwed everything up, from not filling out the work orders completely to totally screwing up the inventory..
I not only do service and repairs, but I also run the sales room as well.. Basically I run the entire store.shop..
but so far, its fun.....

We sell Hustler, Redmax and Tanaka.. Left wall is where the Redmax trimmers and edgers hang..


Looking in from garage door, Big super Z's have to go in here.. During the day, they sit outside..


My 2 work benches..



Back of the shop..looking in from back garage door


Different angle of back shop..
