OMG, Maybe it's just semantics, but................

Couldn't you have left the first "irrigation" out of that quote? I don't think you can say that about him AND call him an IRRIGATION guy. A "new" guy, sure, but............Yeah, it's just semantics, but it CHAPS my A$$$. One, our industry has lost the "art" and there are so few tradesmen left. Two, companies won't pay a guy who actually knows his trade anymore.

That's true of most of the construction trades - the skilled guys are disappearing. The guys who know their trade are usually the ones running the companies, at least the fieldwork side of it, but there are few or no apprenticeship programs other than the trade schools. Why pay a skilled guy when you can hire a guy off the street, pay minimum or just above, and still bill at the same hourly rate?

Great pics Chris. I'm surprised James River bought those remotes for you. Did you rent those compressors? I've heard times are getting tight at Portsmouth branch.

We wouldnt get anything done without these remotes so they are a must. We rented 3 compressors this year, should be able to turn them all in this week. Our office came in above budget this year so we are doing great.
