well, my new guy is actually showing signs of improvement. he's using the 36" on a regular basis, he leaves uncut areas when he turns, but all in all much improved. i do however have alot of concern about his physical condition, and his seemingly lack of enthusiasm. this is his 2nd week. he's improving, but this is what i need. myself and chico bang out $28-$32 cuts in less than 20 min gate to gate. if i have 3 guys i need 12-15 min tops on these same lawns. how long is realistic to demand this type of production , and if i can't have it, let him go?
