    ^ drone shot of the tornado mentioned previously, had to go clear trees for family friends once the damage was assessed. The event was sobering, lots of people lost homes, power was out for almost two weeks, trees power lines and house debris was spread everywhere. Thankfully no one was killed. credit:https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/tornado-researchers-keep-an-eye-on-changing-climate

    Today’s action. Working for the family company as it’s still way too really to do any lawn mowing or property clean ups.

    Today’s task was installing 40m (131ft) of weeper tile outlet pipe. The homes here are built at or slightly about rock and most of the area has a high water table.

    We used HL8(3/4” clear) around the pipe, incase of a pipe blockage the water can still outflow to the ditch. Then topped with filter fabric and GA (3/4” crusher run) to help keep the mud away from the pipe and cloth.

    Trying out some new design software, little bit of a learning curve but overall not so bad.

    Also picked up the new truck, last one was 10 years old with 300K kilometres on it.

    Ready to start this season right!:weightlifter:

    Late spring season aerating, the aerator is a bluebird but for some reason the people I bought it from painted it red.

    Small Riverstone job.

    New one for me, had a request to cut this lawn during construction (house was destroyed in the tornado) wound up doing a lot of trimming as I don’t need the headache of framing nails in my tires:hammerhead:.

    And before even mowing the deck belt decided to slip off the tensioner and between the tensioner arm and the pulley :wall.
    Finally got on the Surecan bandwagon, I can say these are well worth the price tag.
    Also upgraded to a Toro 22” with personal pace and blade stop, it is a significant step up from a 14 year old Murray 22” and a lifesaver on the hills.

    As if flooding wasn’t bad enough, it seems the rain just has to have the last word .

    Finally went ahead and got an Advanced chute for the MZ52, this makes mowing much better:clapping:.

    Well I hope everyone’s summer was a great as ours, this summer has been awesome! Business has tripled, new equipment, newish truck and new trailer, jobs booked for 2020.

    Start of a septic system for the part time work.

    Practically new BR600, I will say that Husqvarna is always going to be my favourite outdoor power brand but this thing can move some air!

    One of our biggest weeding/tear out jobs (yes there are weeds left on the last picture, we got them out the next morning)

    And something new to round out the summer! Super excited to not have to load/unload all the maintenance equipment every time we mow.
