Wheeled trimmers...

So I'm driving around earlier today, and I see a property getting mowed/trimmed.

Two slobs, both with scrubby long hair, cut-off(falling apart) jean shorts, tank tops with holes in them, etc..

The one person was using a wheeled Craftsman trimmer! Doing the curbsides, around posts, etc...

WTF, how can you ever do a good job with one of those? I'm always angling the trimmer head this way and that, unless I'm doing a smaller flat area of ground.

Of couse this person was majorly fat, maybe they were too lazy to hold a trimmer?

I don't think fiveoboy was complaining that HE wasn't working! Just that he was commenting on some PATHETIC lawn care crew. They sounded weak to me!

Srew that! Sounds a lowballing, scrub, no license, no tax paying, no insurance having wannabe LCO.
You don't have to have the best equipment but you have to do a good job. Sounds like they were doing a halfass job with the wheeled trimmer. Don't jump on five0 for starting a conversation thread. You have the right to NOT respond.

You like to stare:laugh: :laugh: I do the same thing, I'm always checking out what the other guy is doing or using. Sometimes i'm impressed other times i just shake my head.
