Whether you are an employee of a commercial grass cutting company, or you are a property owner hiring commercial grass cutting services, there are certain risks which you really need to be aware of, and those risks are the subject of this article by Keith’s Tractor Mowing, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with professional acreage mowing and all other manner of large mowing jobs. Call us when the job is too large for you to handle, and you want it done professionally.
The problems with commercial grass cutting.
Commercial lawn cutting requires specialized equipment, training on that equipment, and expertise which can only come from experience. Commercial mowing services are not like mowing the front yard of your home. They are generally large expanses of land, over an acre in size, and their size alone makes it expedient to mow them with a tractor mower.
Despite the fact that any property owner can rent a tractor mower from a farm implement store, we cannot emphasize enough the dangers involved with operating heavy equipment you are untrained on. The injury statistics are staggering with regards to weekend warriors who try to operate large equipment and become seriously injured.
Commercial grass cutting risks.
Ask any insurance agent about the physical injuries incurred on tractor mowers or brush hogs.
And, while you are asking that insurance agent about physical risks, also ask them about property damage causes by flying projectiles discharged by the large blades of a tractor mower. Damages to parked vehicles, damage to outbuildings, and damage to residences are commonplace when heavy mowing equipment is operated by the untrained.
Listen, we know this sound self-serving. We are, after all, a commercial mowing business. That is why we suggest you do your research and talk to those insurance agents we suggested. Any research you do will net you the same information we just shared with you.
Make sure you are insured properly.
Keith’s Tractor Mowing carries $1,000,000 general liability insurance for any mowing job we do. Now, consider this: we have been doing this a long time. We are trained and certified on heavy equipment but still, we feel it is necessary for us to carry the maximum in liability insurance. Why? Because the nature of this business is unpredictable. Accidents happen, even to the highly trained, and the mantra “better safe than sorry” is a mantra we firmly believe in.
The bottom line is this: we want everyone who is reading this to stay safe. We know that commercial mowing rates can seem expensive, but trust us when we tell you they are not nearly as expensive as a trip to the emergency room plus time lost to injury.
Be aware of the risks and guard against them.
