We ignored changing the front brakes on the work truck too long. They were bad. Called around for an estimate to have them serviced. Place where we purchased the truck quoted $880.00 parts and labor. Another shop quoted $600.00. We decided to service them ourselves. But we did have to call a mobile truck service to come and take the wheels off. Those lug nuts are on there very tight. After parts and our own labor, we only spent $312.00

When of my guys once tried to take the lugs off our dumptruck with a wrench............he got nowhere fast. You need an impact wrench for something like that.

Yeah, we tried by using a metal pipe to add leverage. We ended up bending the pipe. What made things more complicated was that we had to replace the rotors. Those things were to hard to take off.

Lol. Thanks. It was a long week for us this week. Maintenance is our bread and butter. Installs slowed down and had came to a halt. I have a feeling this spring and summer are going to be very busy for us. Have 2 Estimates tomorrow morning. One for a mulch installation and the other for a back yard irrigation and lawn installation.

Some last minute touches on this job. It finally ended today. Compacted the Santa Fe gravel and finalized the irrigation on the fruit trees. On the flower beds, the customer was so impressed with some pictures of some of our flower work. So we will renovate them with beautiful color.

Always have been and always will be a firm believer in the fact that great customer service will be the way you continue to grow. Just landed 2 good size residential properties. Because we were highly recommended from about 4 other current customers we already service. In the last year all of our newest work has come our way by referrals.
