Just down load Labels and MSDS of all the products you use on a lap top and carry it with you. I bill and print invoices right on the job and can look up all my chemicals labels and MSDS any time.

No Lap Top?? Print your own labels & MSDS and keep them in a Ring Binder. Larry Stone still does that and High-lites mix rates for fast reference.

This is what I do to stay legal with the DOA here. They want to see specimen labels with the applicator. I do it because I do not trust my memory and my CRS could mean 5,000 sq ft of turf gone.

Stone is doing well and just bought an other Truck for his business. He got out of Athletic Field business and is doing Residential work. He posts occasionally on both the Sore Loser Forum and the Short Bus Moron Forum. He is still ban from the coffee shop and Lawnsite. Stone and I talk on the phone a few times a month but he has not been to Florida since the Hurricanes. Stone has actually given me some great advice from time to time.

Confession time. The last thread you posted a link too was written by me just after Stone headed North from my house for spring work. I was messing with Stone who hates Walker Mowers and is a Toro mower only guy. Stone stopped by Homers house on the way home and saw my post in his name for the first time. Stone can take it as good as he dishes it out and never replied to that thread and had a good laugh about it. The very name Lawrence Stone brought many replies.

BTW Most of Stone's better threads have been deleted. Stone Slipped back on Lawnsite as Lorezo Perda or Larry Stone in Spanish. OMB caught him right a way and he was ban again.
