    Howdy!
    I'm new here so I thought I would introduce myself. I'm a mechanic with over 25 yrs experience. I'm currently employed at a large nursery and landscaping company in NC. I work on everything from weedeaters to Cat dozers. I hope I can learn something here and also be of help to others.

    Howdy xcopterdoc,

    New to this forum myself, 27 Years experience, all in the Equipment Rental Industry. Can now retire (early 40's, 35' 5th wheel I live in full time, Volvo tractor to pull it, and my bike, what else does a man need? I gave house to kids. Experience similar to yours (you know, piston goes this way, valves go like this, I'll figure it out!!). Hoping I can learn something also.

    I was told Helicopters don't fly, they actually beat the air into submission. Was I told correctly?

    I have never compromised my integrity, unless, of course, I wanted to stay employed. Always felt it would be better to not tell my folks I work in the rental industry, they still think I'm a piano player in a W@#$e house. Not real proud of it, but man, the money was sure good!!!
