    Anyone cutting today, or what is your plan for the rest of the week?
    Looks like it is going to rain off & on until Sunday. We cut Monday & Tuesday, and still have close to two more days of cutting left to do.

    One of my workers said it is supposed to be less of a chance of rain on Sunday & Saturday. Anyone hear differently?

    This spring has been tough. Cold, snow wind and rain.
    With this recent ongoing storm, How many days do you guys expect to let it dry out? Before mowers can get on these soggy lawns.
    It's hard to make up lost revenue this spring.

    You can always go to a smaller mower, or do do tho small yards 1st, if the are soggy. You guys have a tougher situation, if you are cutting on the islands. I could not imagine working on the Islands on Memorial Day Saturday. Where would you park?

    If it is combined weight ( truck and trailer) that most likely includes every pick up & 2 axle trailer.

    And if you hire guys to drive, I assume the employer pays for the physical, and then hopes the guy shows up to work.

    That's why pick up it's all based on 9999 gvw
    And it's commercial vehicles only doesn't apply to the HO. Dragging his huge camper with a1500 or F 150:hammerhead:
