What tools do you use when you trim your balls? Do you trim other peoples balls??? That would be very strange but hey whatever makes the time fly!!!!

Hahaha after this job I'll definitely be able to say I can cut any ones balls. Big or small I cut them all and yes I'm o.k. with using my trimmers on other peoples balls. I mean come on, a guys gotta eat. lol

Steve, thanks man. It took me like 20/30min to get them both like that. It was my first time trying to do these. The customer also knew this. So I tried the 2 that were the most hidden as there are 20 or so of these bastards to do. I went really slow with my stihl hedge trimmer. It's a 28" so it was a little scary. Then i used some new sharp hedge shears to clean up some stuff dangling on the bottoms and snipped a few little dead shoots.

I'll post some more pictures as I go along. There's a ton of work to do at this place.
