While visiting a manufacturing plant in Mexico this morning, I noticed their "grounds crew" and that is a loose term cleaning the parking lot. There were 4 guys cleaning a parking lot the size of HomeDepot with small kitch brooms and dust pans. They were sweeping up the small pea gravel that collected on pavement. They weren't even push brooms. Just think how much money was saved using little $10 brooms instead of one $400 backpack blower. My guys are gonna love this idea. I can't wait to tell them we are selling our blowers. I might have to use this next season to help my bottom line.
