I have been pondering this for quite a while. I know men can wreck some equipment FAST!!!! so wouldnt it be a great idea to tell all employes and all new employees that to which ever crew has the cleanest and best working equipment and trucks at the end of each mowing season that they (the crew) will get lets say a paid 4 day holliday you gotta figure that they will fight to always keep equipment clean and in good condition. How does it help you? Well in the money you save in repairs you can use that to pay them for a 4 day holliday break....and besides your equipment will look good on your customers property at all times. If you dont actually save any extra $$ by giving them a payed vacation atleast you gain a record for having a neat settup at all time and the men will gain respect for you and your equipment. Is this a decent idea?
