    Just think, ROTAR, when you own your own business, you'll be able to show
    these pics to the little snot-noses & say, " see I really did learn the trade from the bottom up." Most employees think we never did any of that work!
    Good for you, it'll keep that gut in check!:)

  4. Ok..I'll bite...

    No trenchers in that part of the country?

    Sometimes it's faster to fix what you break w/ the trencher than it is to dig this chit by hand....judgement call for sure...but I have to ask.

    I understand tony.

    1.we dont have a trencher, we usually borrow it.
    2. he was going to use the excavator but it would make to much of a mess
    3.this is our biggest account by far, so if we don't need a machine we prob wont use one.
    4.we try and put every blade of grass back nice and neat
    5.My boss thought a trencher would make a mess.

    I know...I wanted to use one this afternoon...but for this job its not in the tea leaves.

    Do they not rent them? It's gotta be cheaper & much easier than that.
