Today was terrible...2 trimmers got their carbs dirty or wet or something and had no power, 1 trimmer had the head bind up, the carb fell off 1 backpack, and the grass catcher bracket cracked off.

Plus everything had grown about a foot in the last week and I didn't have my Trivantage Exmark, so I had twice as many clumps to blow out.

Just a miserable day.

I mowed a couple in the morning and had enough. I have a couple mulch jobs lined up so I spent the afternoon edging in the rain. A crew pulled up and mowed a yard a few houses down from where I was working. They left grass all over the sidewalks and clumps of grass all over the yard. Yes, a miserable day to say the least.

Oh man. We blow clumps but we either double back and bag or blow them out.

Haha, that was probably Wes. He had the '02 F250 with the open trailer because his enclosed was in the shop. 1230, I was at Pleasantview Estates on a back avenue by the 60/79 Interchange.

I'll have the '04 F250 with dump insert and the little trailer from now on.

We refer to our trucks by the year...the '02, the '04, etc. Luckily we don't have anything newer than an '09 or it could get awkward.

Hey, go load up the oh-twelve.
Truck 12?
No, truck 12 is the oh-two. Get the oh-twelve.

At least yours are different colors and different weight classes.

I still don't understand why we don't just say the truck's number instead of the year. Makes more sense to say "grab truck 16 and meet me over here."
