    I know how you feel, he has been giving me the run around on the Lesco 60" rider. I called him the evening he made his last post about it (Monday 8-28-06) and met him at his shop at 6:00pm to pick it up. With the bagger on, it was to wide to fit on my trailer, but that didnt seem to matter too much because he was unable to get it out of his shop regardless. I call him again and again trying to work something out, then he tells me to hurry up because Mark (redwingsdet) is also interested if I do not want it, but I was the first to respond, so he was givving me "dibs". I have a guy and a trailer (this time wide enought to accomodate the bagger) spend over 4 hours on Thursday (8-31-06) driving out near his place (after he calls me and says its going to be there and everything will be a go), and waiting because he "couldnt find the keys to his enclosed trailer" and was trying to locate them. I finially could not keep the guy tied up any longer, and sent him on his way to do other work. I tried several calls and kept getting the run around, tried to arrange to pick it up on Friday (9-1-06) but still could not get any commitments from them to meet me or have it available for pickup. I told him I would be gone all weekend for the holiday, and I tried to call him again today, and everything goes straight to voicemail, the office and the cell. I am not sure what the problem is, nor how many others are being strung along on this or similar deals, so I feel it is appropraite to bring this up in a public forum as a buyer beware, and hopefully to get a response from Dan that he is unable/unwilling to provide by phone.

    My latest guy was a no call no show today. Unreal. This is the second time this year this has happened, and just as were starting to get slammed again with fall work, aerations and the like, and still in full swing on the mowing. He wasnt a school kid though, just someone with lack of personal responsibility apparently. Im not sure if I can find a guy this late in the season, or if IM just going to have to grunt it all out myself.

    Yea tell me about it with me and 2 other guys we were putting in 50 hours a week. Today was our first day with just me and another guy and are already behind from taking yesterday off. Between cuttinng 150 properties a week and landscape maintenance/install jobs in the weekend I'm not sure we'll be able to take on our normal work load.
