View Full Version : New guy here

Hello all, my name is Paul and I have been in the building/ hardscape/landscape business for 8 years, I mostly service my existing clients and am proud to say I've not had to advertise in five years. I chose busted blade as my name here because it was the name given to me by my boss, years ago when I ran a brushhog over a manhole, I guess you guys can guess the rest.
I hope to learn alot here as I realize my 9 years is nothing.

Can you post a picture on here of that brushhog? I imagine the manhole won the battle...

It was years ago, as I recall it was a woods 7' mounted on a Ford 3900, I spent countless hours on that thing. We had a contract to do a monthly mow of a retention area, roughly 2,500 x 1,000. Problem was the 3900 was 2wd with turf tires...had to get momentum and be aware of wheel spin...and watch out for manholes.

Nobody was in it but, to this day I can still hear that awful sound and the smell of clutch burning.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome, I can't wait to start some good discussions once this white stuff melts. Not much to talk about in snow removal, unless samething breaks or you hit something that you thought was not there but then it was there and your lip is bleeding...not that something like that happened...lately.

I think if you actually work (not leave your stuff parked) you find that some crazy things happen, especially when you are first starting out and dealing with new jobs...I guess old ones can present problems as well, like a yard last year that had a screwdriver stuck in it at Exactly the right height(dented a mesh bagger).
