This may be the best thread I've read on a lawn care sight. I think
that it bears repeating....USE SUNBLOCK. I have a feeling that some of us will someday be saying "Holy sh##t, I guess they were right." Hope it's not too late then.

ESLawns answer was particularly good.

Don't... set your cell phone on the trailer rail thinking you'll remember it later.
Do... keep a backup of all your phone # in case you set your cell phone on the trailer rail.

Kind of neat, almost a year to the date. I would just like to say, that one of the best things to do as a newbie, is keep reading LS. God bless You, Eric...

thread bought back

Know this sounds silly, but I am just starting out.. I just loaded up good old Excel and read this entire thread, item by item. I'm gonna post it on the garage wall, it's all the stuff to "Load Every Time Out" list. Some stuff, like Wasp Spray, ear plugs and spare trailer tire are 3 things that I don't currently have, but will as of tommorow, that's for sure. Nothing like a quick checklist and a tool caddy to get it all organized to really help out.

Wear good, solid, comfortable footwear!

Keep those precious feet and toes protected. As a solo-operator I know that I would be in BIG trouble if something bad happened to one of my 'prime movers'.

always carry extra tools around with you. All kinds. You never know when you will need them.

check your trimming line after the day to see whether or not you need to replace it before the next day. It will save you a lot of time when trimming. Instead of constantly running out on a job site, you will actually be fine because you checked the night before. (or morning)

SLS -

Way to go bumping this thread back up for spring 2003 :-) Everyone has done a great job covering the bases. How about adding:

(1) Carry your pesticide and business license in your vehicle in case you are questioned;

(2) Carry your insurance information in the vehicle in case there's an accident;

(3) Release pressure on your pesticide sprayer tank after you finish the application just in case somebody bumps it by accident; that way they don't get hosed down and blinded;

(4) Always walk a site before beginning work and take note of hazards and/or already damaged property to reduce problems.
