    trimmer, I do have that new echo edger I got in june but its a split boom, it stays on the trailer with the edger attachment until I need it for something else
    yep just a string trimmer
    yeah we had hardly no rain all july and up until last week. Lawns are still dead though, we haven't had a ton of rain yet either just lower temps this week

    Man we had a little dry spell there for a while but it's been pretty wet the last week or so. I was starting to worry but it's not so bad now. Not so sure we're out of the woods with the dry stuff yet though.

    Had to do brakes and rotors all the way around on the blue truck they were bad I normally never let them get like that. they never squealed or nothing though
    I cleaned up everything real nice even painted all the calipers etc.

    And the worst, I have heard of this happening before but never thought it could, this is my only lawn it happened on and just the front. Luckily this house is vacant and not on a major street customer totally understands too which is really good I have been skipping it this was like 3 weeks ago its gotten better though

    What a horrible summer for grass! I guess the positive will be all the lawns we'll be replanting this fall. Hopefully it will rain for that.

    Here's one I haven't cut in 4 weeks. Took this today. Trimmed the edges that had nutgrass/crabgrass.

    Nobody has sprinklers? All of my weekley customers have underground sprinklers. I have 2 bi-weekley lawns that don't.

    That would be a major hit to the pocketbook. Hope ya get rain soon so you could at least finish the season mowing a little bit.

    Man that sucks guys. Its not been too bad here (knock on wood). It got pretty dry there for a while but it rained a ton and everything perked back up. We've been fortunate, some of them got hit pretty hard though when it was 100+ every day. But everything is good now, thankfully it didn't last long at all here.

    I know I can speak for g.m. and myself on this one but not many if any in my area (irwin/n.huntingdon) have true dedicated sprinkler systems. Some may drag the hose out once in a while but thats about it :hammerhead:

    Yeah, it's pretty bad a little north of you guys also, but none of mine are "burned." They're brown and slow-growing, but not as bad as the pic GM showed.

    I guess this is repayment for last August...I got 5 cuts on a few of my lawns last August.
