    It is amazing to see how dirty alot of companies keep their trucks ,trailer equipment.What ever happen to personal pride.
     
  2. I read on here water was bad for mowers, I guess thats part of the reason.

    i pull up in a dirty old 95 ranger and gatorade bottles fall out all the time. along with my jack links teriyaki jerky rappers. customers dont give a crap because i do one helluva a job on their lawn. so go ahead and polish your 08 f350 superduty crewcab and spit shine your mowers every evening. waste all the time on something that customers could care less about. while youre doing that, i'll be enjoying time with my family.

    damn proud of the job i do. my blades are always sharp and my lawns look as good or better than anyone who has to wash his mower every day. its not the mowers or the trucks or any of the equipment that the customer cares about, its the finished product. you can have the most shiny equipment but if your lawn looks like crap, do you think the customer will say "atleast his stuff looks good".

    I always keep the truck clean, the mowers I wash every now and then, usually after I cut in the rain (mud), the trailer never gets washed tho. i make sure my truck is shinin inside and out
