Mondays with Matt: The importance of a good equipment tech

In this edition of “Mondays with Matt”, we talked about the importance of having a mechanic or equipment manager. 

If you ask Matt, hiring a great equipment manager (or mechanic) should be your top priority. It’s the one area you don’t want to worry about, or worse, be blindsided by costly repairs or major breakdowns that will later turn into downtime.

For Matt, it’s all about protecting your investment. Your equipment manager will be responsible for checking oil, filters, hydraulics, blades, belts, and making routine repairs to keep your equipment performing at its best.

To quote Matt, “The worst thing you can do is start your day off with a bad cut. A bad cut is going to give you brown haze, and your grass will be shredded—meaning it’s going to wilt faster and require more chemicals and fertilizer. A good, sharp cut is the way to start your day.”
