I just wanted to quickly pass a situation on to you "pro's" here! I am the #1 worker right now, and every week, I am responsible for taking 2 workers to mow with me. My problem is with equipment! My boss buy's the cheap homelite stuff, and it is CONSTANTLY breaking and what not! The major problem right now is a 4 year old trimmer that should have been retired at 2 years!! What can I do to get the problem rectified? I have brought it up before that we need a new one, but then I hear moans/groans about cash-flow, and how "busy" he can be! After constant prodding, he will take it to a repair place and spend half the price of a new trimmer to get the old one "fixed"! So you probably can tell that "nice" equipment is more than likely out of the question UNLESS you have SUGGESTIONS!!!!!!!! oh yeah, we do not beat the equipment either, it just happens, and often I may add! Thank you for looking my post over, and thank you for making me look REALLY SMART when I'm at work! This site has it all!!!!
