Dull Blade of the Week


In honor of April Fools Day we are going to add some humor to your day!  We all have great ideas out on the job site, but these guys put their grand plans into action. We can't say if this is a good idea or bad idea, we will let you decide.  Either way, they earned themselves the award this week!

This guy had to have the time of his life, but who in their right mind would sign up for this? Sure, we all trust our equipment, but we know things can go wrong quickly. He was one small mistake away from turning the greatest swing ever into a human catapult!
 

Not sure what Sharq Blades are?

These blades are designed to take the high stress work out of grading and plowing.

Sharq's cutting edges for graders, snow plows, and other heavy equipment are designed to cut through hard packed material with barely any force. Instead of running your machine at high RPMs, these blades require very little to no down pressure. This means less vibration and stress on the operator and the machine.


This Week's Honorable Mention

 Let's keep with the amusement park theme as these guys try to build their own Merry-Go-Round.
