    Apparently my customers have a problem with me using my electric weed eater on their yard using their electric because of the rising utilities cost.........

    How often do you need to sharpen the cows teeth compared the overrated blades? I have noticed that goats are more common around here because you can fit more on a trailer compared to cows.

    I solved that mile by owning 4.5 miles of extension cord. I just have to be real carful on routing, and be sure I come home on the same roads I left on. Kinda sucks when it comes unplugged though. Get lots of funny looks from other LCOs as I drive by, with a cord leading back to my house...

    Before doing this I stold it from customer's neighbors outside outlets...

    If you cut the plug off the end of your extension cord and secure the wires to a 5 ft piece of chain, you can toss the chain up and over the power lines and get your power that way.

    If your in a development with underground utilities, I break out the trusty old pocket knife and whittle away at the power line to the house just before the meter. To avoid getting a shock while touching the wires I make sure I am chewing on a piece of tin foil.

    I get to much down time with the goats,there always wanting to butt heads and then they cant remeber were they left off,to much playing :blob2: around. The cows are less productive but they can go all day long chewing,plus the fertalizer is much larger. As for sharpening the cows teeth we just use a grinder ther false so they dont feel anything at all. :laugh: :laugh: :waving:
