Like the Scag. How do you like the Honda 21? We are very disapointed with it. We are big Honda fans but this one let us down. It's the motor, very powerless compared to the older ones.

Got a few changes on the BigTex trailer. Added a place on tongue for gas cans also. We just had to get the sprayers out of the truck bed and all those digging tools. We have room for 5 trimmers and/or one long hedge trimmer.

Nice mods to the trailer. Keeping everything organized sure does speed up production.

Some of our big properties got so many weeds that we had to get our buddies from TruGreen back on the job. Actually they are just about the only ones that can do big properties ...I think. I am really surprised this guy don't wear mask and other safety stuff. He has been doing this for many years. But they just took him off salary so he is not a happy guy.

Well we got a chance to do a little hand digging. One of the installs is in an environment sensitive area and digger not allowed. The line is only being used to water a bunch of trees. The rule is to get it in the ground but do not disturb roots and go around hard rock. The other area has a bunch of different lines that prohibit us from use of digger.

We don't have all that showie stuff like you guys have on the east coast but this is a little bit of our spring. Actually spring came a few week ago we are now waiting for the 90F which is coming maybe this week. You can see how the last summer took out that St Augustine grass...
