This is my second year being out of the mowing truck. I ran a 2 man crew last year and a 3 man crew this year. I still help if they get behind. I mainly take care of the paper work, estimates, repairs, and the weed/fertilizer application routes. I'm making strides each year and hopefully soon I can add a application tech or just to apps only. My crew leader is new this year and forgetting the hang of things. I still like to meet him in the mornings to go over the days route and set him free. Thanks for all the advice and thoughts. Keeping the ball rolling in hopes that I can keep/pay a good crew leader/manager to run the mowing side. My biggest problem is finding guys with experience in our field and not cutting their own lawn. They are so hard to find!
