    Lawn Jockey, not to rain on your parade - but you do know that all advertisements for irrigation work in Texas require a Irrigators License?
    By law, it has to be on the advertisement, the print media (meaning your door hanger), the vehicle (both sides) and a license number verified through TCEQ.
    Not that it is problematic to me, which you aren't, but I'd hate to see what appears to be a good operation stabbed by the state.
    If you do have a Texas Irrigator's license - disregard - my bad.

    If not licensed, can't advertise that.
    until you are licensed, if an account asks you for advice/repairs,
    you can offer options, and you CAN assist the account
    in any work that they can legally do, as long as you don't charge them
    for that specific work. If you need compensation it needs to be hidden in
    fees for other services. Sounds shady, I know, but we're not talking about
    majors alterations or complete installs. Most of the time it's just
    a clogged nozzle, busted riser or 90, or putting a slip-fix on a cracked lateral.

    I wouldn't worry about screwing on a head you just knocked off
    with your mower.

    That set off my BS alarm, I had a '94 Ranger that I put 1.5-2 tons in regularly, and never had any problems with wheelies.

    You're saying you had a Ranger that you put 60-80 bags (2 pallets) of fertilizer in the back???
