    So I'm driving around earlier today, and I see a property getting mowed/trimmed.

    Two slobs, both with scrubby long hair, cut-off(falling apart) jean shorts, tank tops with holes in them, etc..

    The one person was using a wheeled Craftsman trimmer! Doing the curbsides, around posts, etc...

    WTF, how can you ever do a good job with one of those? I'm always angling the trimmer head this way and that, unless I'm doing a smaller flat area of ground.

    Of couse this person was majorly fat, maybe they were too lazy to hold a trimmer?

    so you get on here to bash guys for using what they have to do a job why?
    Why does it matter what they used on a job . There out working give them a break.

    Yeah, that's the sole reason I get on here.

    If you had a clue(its clear you don't), you'd understand my frustration, so carry on.

    I don't think fiveoboy was complaining that HE wasn't working! Just that he was commenting on some PATHETIC lawn care crew. They sounded weak to me!

    Srew that! Sounds a lowballing, scrub, no license, no tax paying, no insurance having wannabe LCO.
    You don't have to have the best equipment but you have to do a good job. Sounds like they were doing a halfass job with the wheeled trimmer. Don't jump on five0 for starting a conversation thread. You have the right to NOT respond.
