[QUOTE]lawrence stone Well we finally agree on something Jim.
A REAL lawn guy drives a 10-year-old single cab eight-foot box pickup with greedy boards. This is the real lawn guys work truck. He rarely ever uses his work truck for personal usage.

The way the real lawn guy cleans his real work truck (purchased used real cheap from an old man who bought it new and only took it fishing) is to open both doors and use a hand blower to remove the garbage inside.

A truck is not a Lincoln Town Car. It's cheaper to buy a plain work truck and a used $2k town car with 40k loving maintained miles from a widow in SW Florida vs. some new fancy pick up with leather heated seats.


To each their own.

By the way real nice truck kirby!!!!!!

Real Lawn Guy

Hey Lawrence Stone. A real lawn guy doesn't own a hand held blower. He also has a foreman to do most of his dirty work so he can do the things he has to do, like run a buisness.
Anyway, Kirby. I love the Division Bell tribute and the laptop. I think I am going to get a printer for mine. Who says lawn guys can't go high tech?

Hey Stone. We have different criteria here for lawn guys than you evidently. Here it is more important for us to understand how to care for lawn than how dirty or old our truck is. I think:
  • A real lawn guy can identify crabgrass.
  • A real lawn guy can identify Poa Annua.
  • A real lawn guy should understand soils pH.
  • A real lawn guy knows how to apply Barricade without sterilizing his soil for a year.
  • A real lawn guy applies fertilizer for the benefit of the lawn and to meet nutritional requirements. Not applying half rates to slow growth, save money, and cheat their customers.

I feel sorry for you customers (victims).

If someone else (other than yourself) posted off topic crap at the forum you moderate it would be deleted by the administrator of that site ASAP and would be considered unprofessional.

So in conclusion don't come over to this forum and make it your toilet. You have made your bed and now you should sleep in it.
Practice what you preach.

Thanks.

Jonathan, you do not need a real big one to run a laptop, check out northern tool catalog, they have a bunch of them.
