    Finding mechanical inclined is hard but the most important for me is finding individuals who care about others equipment. I am basically a 1-2 person operation but when I need help I choose from firefighters. Thier schedule allows 24 on and 48 off and the best part for me is public relations. They are also used to being on time and they can pass a drug screen. Yes, I am also a firefighter and there are some bad apples in all profession but if one tells me he thinks something isnt sounding right on a mower or equipment ...I stop and look at problem. I hope equal employment employment dosent come down on me but by past experience when it comes to mechanical experience and good employees I call fellow firefighters.

    Blowing clippings over an entire yard because my early model Hustlers do not disperse them well.

    Customers with a mouth seem to suck up a lot of time.
