    The way both trucks have been going its looking like this will happen in about 3 week done tops...Which is good.......

    me/partner have banged out 158 already.we average 17 a day with a 40 cfm compressor....Which is actually pretty good....Average 1500$ in work a day or so...Soon there after I will get the dole.......

    "Hi Mrs. XYZ,can I please turn the water off?" Times about 350.....

    This one lady Every year goes to me

    " can you please move the lawn furniture into my cellar 300 yards away"

    I did it for two years..She never gave up buffalo.

    "I'm sorry we have a tight schedule to keep"

    We're all pretty fried after a season (I worked this year & winterize is yet to
    go) but irrigation is a service industry & Mrs.XYZ makes you a living, so take
    the crap & move on; it will soon be over.:hammerhead: :)

    They were spectacular a week or so ago; too much leave drop since then. However, I look out over to the west and a lot of peaks are already getting a good snowcap on them. This just might be the year I master moguls....

  10. Installs in the 80's!! What a dream. I'd still be doing them. Try installs in the 100s. If installs in the 80's is tough you would die in Texas.
