    You mean that's what the dealer wanted to charge you

    Boy I could so put stuff like that into a TV show for Spike. Maintaining, operating, testing of equipment in this field.

    Dude if you can't grease a mower (which needs to be done often) your in the wrong industry. A clogged zerk is a 2 min fix if you are supplied like a LCO should be.

    Lost my grease gun. Last couple years they did it foot only 10 bucks. But that was just my walk behind. And maybe not everything. Now that there is more to do and is an actual bill I'll be buying another grease gun and doing it myself
