we meet at the shop at 7. The guys go out as soon as everything is loaded. Usually 7:30 by the time they check the oil, air pressure, grease, fuel and head out. the first lawn probably between 7:30 and 7:45. A bit later on the weekend.

you should try doing all that maintenance in the evening after the day is done. thats what i do, then it gives me more time to sleep in the morning.

anyway. i start at 8am pretty much most days. i have one commercial account i start at 7:15am.

the noise ordiance in our city won't let anyone in residential zoned areas start making noise until 8am. commercially zoned areas are wide open.

If the commercial is a hotel, should you start at 8 or would it be okay to start at 7?

I prefer the stuff to be done before the equipment goes out for the day. Oil checked and what not. No real maintenance just the quicky maintenance stuff in the morning before the equipment goes out.
