Pro “Tip Of The Day”


Seems I learn something new every single day.

Figured maybe I can help someone else out.

Today’s lesson:

Don’t slam the seat bar down on the Bobcat with a chalk box in the pocket of your hoodie. The old lady says we are done having kids anyway so I guess it ain’t no big deal.

Snow all day. Not for paying customers either Its hard to make money framing when the whole crew works all day and the only tools you get out are shovels.

Just cause your truck didn’t gel up the last time it got below zero doesn’t mean it won’t today

At least the new ones some how keep driving, just at reduced power and 20 mph.

I may not be good at much, but I can drive the chit out of a Skid steer.
