Hello everyone


Not a kitchen sink but was very handy for the digging required to bring water into the house from the new water well.

Hello everyone


It sounds like a great combination of tools and tractor. I wish I had been able to afford a rig like yours back when I was still working.

Hello everyone


Thank you, I must admit that when I bought the tractor and saw all the attachments, I thought the snowblower looked a little fragile.

But, it is still going strong!

Hello everyone


As a woman who has had the responsibility of maintaining of my house, I've been taken advantage of by some contractors. Unfortunately, I've been getting burned with each new situation. Recently, I contracted to have my doors installed. The head contractor seemed like a forthright, personable guy that would do a good job. His subcontractor with 34 years of experience claimed that he had never dealt with "my problem" (door jam needed to be extended) and then acted as though I was being irrational when I pointed out some of the aesthetic eyesores of a poor job. It is Xmas eve and the work is still not done because they have been "fitting my job" in-between other customers for the last two weeks. The head contractor is in Italy for the holidays. One entry and two storm doors...

Hello everyone


Nice rant-----It is very difficult to find a contractor or service man that you can trust-----

Often referrals from friends and associates are a good place to start----I do understand your frustration!

On several occasions I have traveled out of state to do a project for regular local customers---

Right now, I am searching for an honest contractor in Massachusetts---I may end up supervising that project from a beach chair!!!

Keep looking--there are a lot of good competent people out there---once you find one, treat him well.(cookies are nice)---Merry Christmas---Mike--

Hello everyone


I find that detailed expectations (written and sometimes pictures) with a performance guarantee that's sets a completion date after which payment concenssions occur to be effective. My intent is to NEVER collect on any payment for non-performance....the goal is done right and on time.

Also, if you can ask to see a previous job. If they did a great job a previous customer will usually be glad to talk to you and many times show off the finished product.

I did not follow my advice on a recent job and it cost me $ and time. If they are not willing to meet the stated expectations and timeline then I select someone else...
