looks like the guy with the back pack following the hurricanes isn't needed or could have been cutting the grass or something, didn't look like he was being useful.

If you didn't show the hurricanes in the beginning I would have thought that the backpack just had I crazy power. Haha. I wish I had enough clean ups to have a hurricane. Nice work.

you guys will get there, it takes a little time. I will say it is awesome having a hurricane on board for this year. productivity is still up and labor is down to just me no help at all and i'm doing clean ups faster on my own now then I was last year with two guys helping me.

You don't relize how much time and money you are wasting on cleanups till you own a hurricane. Once you get one you will ask your self why you didn't get one sooner. The time saved on jobs and cutting down on labor is Hugh. It's well worth the money.

pretty much, I know I didn't get one sooner because I could afford one until this year, because in my previous years I was terrible I mean terrible at saving any kind of money, so I didn't have any extra money ever, and I made significantly less money in previous years. I was like a kid in a candy everywhere I went, I saw, I wanted, I bought end of story. now I have more self control and a lot more money and that's why I finally picked one up a few months back.

Lol, I knew it was going to save me time and money the second I saw one, I bought one the first day it showed up to my dealer. In fact i bought one before they landed in show rooms, my dealer called me when the hurricane rep stopped by to show it to em.

it is certainly one of the best investments for cleanups. I thought we were efficient before the hurricane, but that thing proved me wrong. first day we had it on the ground it was for 4 accounts only a few houses apart. normally it would take us 7 hours to do it with 3 guys. with the hurricane it only took 3 of us a hair over 3 hours start to finish.
