What's the difference?? A bag of fertilizer, 50 lbs, multiplied by 60, would be 1.5 tons. Or 80 bags would be 2 tons.

Yes, when I collected my check at the scrapyard, it was usually for a little over a ton. There was only one time it was over 2 (I think it was 4,200lbs)

Not that it is problematic to me, which you aren't, but I'd hate to see what appears to be a good operation stabbed by the state.
If you do have a Texas Irrigator's license - disregard - my bad.
I did not actually know that. I am not licensed. I sub out alot of things. Chemicals, tree trimming, sprinkler work, and now we no longer do our own landscape installs. Strictly whittled down to maintenance. No more headaches.
