Rainy Day Work

  I am often asked if we go home on rain days and the answer is almost always no.  The reason is simple, often times we defer small maintenance around the shop,  wait to deep clean equipment, and do noisy work such as chipping brush.  If we have a long stretch of no rain, this type of work can add up.
Rain days mean shop cleaning.

Performing deferred maintenance.

  With several days of rain, we have been focused on doing what we call "house cleaning". We have been catching up on paper work, organizing irrigation parts, cleaning equipment, doing minor repairs to the maintenance building, and using our newest acquisition, a 135hp chipper! Needless to say, even on rain days, we stay busy.
Brush piles up over the course of a season.

Chipping brush is more efficient and economical than hauling it away.
