How do you like your GMC, I just bought a '02 gmc dually with the 8.1 and allison transmission. I love it it doesen't even know my trailer is back there, of course its not 28 ft either. I just ordered a dump insert and will post pics when its all together. Nice looking rig I would have a hard time parking that puppy.

Thanks for the comments guys. We really don't have any problems with the size of our rig around here. I could see how some of you would in your areas but here the streets are wide and the properties are decent sized. I love my GMC and it has the Duromax and Allison and trust me it knows this trailer is behind it. It pulls it as fast as you would want to and stops it no problem but it knows when it's hooked up trust me. The only thing I would've done different was get the west coast mirrors instead of the power rv mirrors. My old truck had the west coast and they did work better for backing up.

Very nice! Looks very professional. Inside is organized nicely too.

Do you know about how much the trailer weighs loaded? We've pulled about 10k with our dmax and your right, you know it's there but it does a great job (especially with a few mods).

We are looking into an 8'x20' enclosed and are a little worried about the length, I can't imagine parking a 28' at some of our accounts.

How do you feel about the built in dovetail on your trailer? I think we're going to go with a car hauler with a built in dovetail. I don't think it will be a problem. We also want to go with heavier axles, 5200lbs each (preferably rated for 4990 to keep it under 5ton...cdl).

Anyways, very nice rig.

Damn thing is so long it might take longer to get out of the truck and walk back to the end of the trailer and get the equipment out than it does to service the property. Aftet looking at it a 2nd time, I think it's has more room than my first apartment LOL....cleaner for sure. :D

Get to work, thats a lot off stuff to pay for. I hope I don't see all that on ebay in the future because you spent too much. I would hope you gross at least 200k to be able to pay for all that. Also, I hope you are not showing up to lawns under an acre with all that equipment. ;)

03-25-2005, 08:02 PM
Thanks for the comments guys. We just finished cleaning everything up and getting it ready for the season and I decided to take some pics. Yes some of the mowers are pretty new, but I am picky about my stuff and keep it in good shape. As for the people concerned about paying for it do you think someone could purchase a rig like this without a ton of work? We service accounts of all sizes and are setup to take them all on. Its easy for some people to pick and moan but we have the equipment that is necessary for the accounts and the number of accounts that we service. Surely all of your rigs have been cleaned to the max so that they look good when you roll out this spring. It is just an image that we promote here; clean truck and equipment, uniformed employees, we are a professional lawn service provider and it shows.

HazellLawnCare
03-25-2005, 08:04 PM
Oh yeah the trailer loaded weighs in just barely over 10,000lbs and has 2 6000lb axles under it. It also has heavy duty 16 inch tires and wheels and upgraded brakes on both axles. This isn't my first enclosed trailer for this purpose and I knew exactly what to order this time.

Absolutely! Anyone with credit can own what they want. I am happy for you, the rig looks great.. I just noticed the equipment all looks new. And having 4 trimmers and 3 mowers on one property indicates you must be doing large estates.
I got myself into some financial trouble, getting over my head. I love new equipment as much as anyone. I think image is extremely important... But! There is something to be said for lean and mean also. Keep it small, keep it all. payup

03-26-2005, 01:25 AM
Ok ksland you want my story here it is. I ran a large scale lawn care company here for about 5 years I grew it like you suggest from nothing to about the same setup that I have now. I had another guy come up to me and offer a large sum of money to purchase everything, I had also had another offer for a place of employment(benefits, retirement, 3 weeks paid vacation whenever I wanted). So I sell all of my stuff to the other guy but I tell him I won't sell him my name and he can have my contracts but if at any point he doesn't provide the level of service they are used to they can look elsewhere. The first year he lost almost everything and all of my old work was spread out between some of the other guys in town. For 2 years I had people calling me all the time asking me to take care of their properties in my evenings and weekends. The more work I picked up the more I missed this business. Last season I worked with my personal truck and one of the z's and a lot of people noticed I was soon over booked to be doing the work part time. I sent letters out last August to all of my large commercial accounts I had before and they all replied within 1 week to tell me if I was getting back into the business I didn't even need to send them a bid just put them back on my list. So this year I have more work than I ever had before, better equipment to do it with and a better appreciation for doing something that you truely enjoy. I sat down with the man that purchased my business last year and told him I was considering getting back into the business and he said that he didn't care if I did for he was getting out of the maintenance side and going back to doing only install again this year. I know you will find this hard to believe but he said he paid for the business purchase the first year he tried it so he had atleast broken even. So I took the money he paid me and purchased a new trailer and all of my new equipment. The only thing I am making payments on is my truck, and trust me I will bring in plenty to pay for it. It just irritates me how sometimes guys on here know everything and try and pick on the new guys. Well I'm here to tell you I'm not a new guy just a seasoned pro with lots of shiney new toys.

Hazel that is one of the nicest set-ups I have ever seen. We are irrigation only company and have two enclosed trailers one 18 & the other 20. We are getting rid of the 18 to upgrade to a 22 I read an article last year in a trade magazine that said you should always try to get bigger vehicles and trailers then you think you will need (if you have the $$.) I first thought that it was bs but after thinking about it is something to consider. Good Luck in 05.

The floor is coated with a commercial floor paint from Sherwin-Williams. I had the same stuff on my old trailer and it would hold up well throughout the year. We do repaint the trailer inside every winter though.

Did you make the trimmer traps? Do you have a template to copy if so? I have the 4-rack trimmer traps, but those would probably be better.

HazellLawnCare
03-29-2005, 05:43 PM
I just made the trimmer rack out of 1" square tubing and 7/16" round rod. It is pretty simple to make. My only advice is to make the legs L shaped that way the load is on the floor and screwed down and the only thing the screws into the walls are doing is supporting.

Hazel -

I've been running 24' enclosed trailers for 8 years now.

One thing I noticed on your trailer, you're going to want to do VERY soon, go get some Diamond Plate and put about 18-24" up from the bottom. When you start moving those mowers in and out, it'll be VERY easy to put a hole in that wall.

Also, you might want to run a strip down both walls where your bagger's corners will back into the wall.

I know it sounds dumb, but no doubt someone will want to be in a hurry and when they're backing up, they'll put the corner of the bagger through the wall.

This year I went to a Featherlite enclosed trailer, it's not finished off on the inside, but after how beat up my last one was, I wasn't looking for that.

Just a couple of quick tips, I hate seeing nice stuff getting beat up.

RedWingsDet
04-06-2005, 06:55 PM
Man thats awesome Hazel. Im jealous. Im 17, 2nd year doing lawns and installs and 3rd for snow. I have been through about 3 trucks and 4 trailers in 2 years and a few mowers lol. I like new stuff. I went from a 5x10, to a 7x16, then to two 6.5x14's. lol... anyway, thats some awesome stuff. hopefully in 3-5 years I can have that same stuff. however I'd really like to get out of maintenance and just do landscacaping and hardscaping. My next few purchases will be a bobcat skidsteer and 3500 reg cab diesel dump bed, and an enclosed trailer to keep the landscaping equipment.

I love your truck and Trailer man, those are saweeet... you should get AC in your trailer.

HazellLawnCare
04-07-2005, 02:27 PM
Thanks for the suggestion on the walls but I've already beat you to that one. Instead of getting a trailer with the base thin plywood walls I upgraded to thicker wood. I have been considering running something along the walls behind the fenders to keep the walkbehinds from banging it up to bad. As for the air conditioning idea no way! We hardly use the air conditioning in the truck. If we are sitting in the trailer in the ac we aren't making money.

All of our Redmax stuff is awesome. We have no problems with any of them and they all have plenty of power. We do have a couple of the 8000 backpack blowers but for our weekly mowing work we don't need to carry around a big heavy backpack. I guess you are right since we bag everything we don't have near the mess.

I could be mistaken, but I thought that you mentioned at some point that you were going to switch to all Wright Stander mowers. I am just curious as to your thoughts on this on why or why not you did not make the move?

I apologize if I am thinking this for no reason, but thought you mentioned it before.

In the pictures we have just repainted the trailer. We do this every winter and I am really anal compulsive on keeping my stuff clean.

I haven't bought the Wright standers. I am this spring though. I heard the talk of the Toro stander and held off on the Wrights and now the Toro still won't be out till next season so I have 3 wrights ordered.

I love my Toro's. The cut quality is second to none and I will purchase more red mowers in the future. The trimmer rack is something I made and it works really good.

The dump bed is an Alumline flat bed with the sides built for it. My new Dodge has a black steel flat bed on it because the aluminum bed rattled way too much when it was full of grass.

I see that you run the Toro mowers. What size and what engine size. I am looking to buy a few new mowers and am really thinking of Toro. How do you like yours? Do they stripe the yards out? Do you ever side discharge? If so, how do they do? Also, where do you empty all the grass when your at the job? That is the only reason I have never bagged lawns. My truck bed is only so big. When it is time to buy new mowers are you sticking with Toro? Thanks for all of the help!!

The Toro mowers have been nothing but good to me. The z's are 27 horse liquid cooled machines with 60" Turbo Force decks. They bag and side discharge really well. I had the Toro striping kit installed on them but had alot of problems with them so I have replaced them this season with the ezroller. We empty all the grass into the back of our one ton dump trucks and haul it off. The city here has a free compost area and we have the key to get in anytime we want (it doesn't hurt that we take care of the city offices and a few city owned properties). I am buying 2 new 72" zero turns in the next month and I can't decide between the Toro or the Kubotas. The Kubota seems to be built alot more heavy duty but I will probably buy the Toros.

Whats the diff between the toro striping kit and the ez roller? I have a exmark very similar but alot smaller then ur units. I have the exmark striping kit and i loves how it cuts with it on the mower. BUT i cant stand how u always have to get under their to adjust it. When i say get under their i mean get on all fours and loosen the bolts that hold the roller and then put it in a differnt hole and tighten them. It takes to long. Is their a easyier way?

I have been looking at the ezroller. How does it work on your mower? Does it really leave a deep heavy stripe? Did the toro stripe good without a roller? I see you run walk behinds. I guess they are Toro too? Do you run the belt or hydro? What about the tbar or pistol grips. I have always liked the pistol for the purpose of unloading them off the trailer. I am buying some 36" walks also. What do you like the best. Have you ever mulched with a 36" or do you just bag. Thanks for all of your thoughts!!

HazellLawnCare
02-23-2008, 08:12 PM
I don't know how the ezroller stripes yet. They are installed on the mowers but we are waiting for spring. They stripe ok without but I wanted something more defined. The walkbehinds are hydros with the pistol grip.

I don't know how the ezroller stripes yet. They are installed on the mowers but we are waiting for spring. They stripe ok without but I wanted something more defined. The walkbehinds are hydros with the pistol grip.


With the ezroller, do u have to unscrew it to adjust the height of the roller?

You would have to unscrew it to adjust the height but why are you moving yours once it is set?

Ok I understand why you would have to move it then. I don't change my cutting height for different accounts so I don't have that problem.

Ok, do u think their is a different way, so u can adjust it with lets say clips? Or is bolting it on pretty much the only way?

Probably one of the most expensive and nicest set-ups I've seen on here. How long have you been in business to be that successful?

Nice setup. What are those big peices of metal on the discharge side of the Toro WB?

Runner

That metal plate is for the cloth bagger that snaps on. The plate just slides down into a hole located toward the rear of the deck (there is a pin on the plate), and then pivots over to the discharge chute. There is a small tab of metal that pivots on a bolt that swings down over a lip above the discharge chute to hold it against the chute. It goes on in about 3 seconds. The cloth bagger that goes against it, goes onto that in about the same amount of time.

i like the look of your trimmer rack and the gas and push mower racks. Did u make them yourself?

HazellLawnCare
09-23-2008, 09:56 PM
Yes I did make the trimmers racks. I layed out what I wanted on paper and went to town cutting and welding with 1" square tubing. It is still working just fine, might not look as pretty, its actually about time to replace most of it.

I currently work 3 guys and myself. I am talking with another local lco about taking over his accounts. If I do that I will have to setup another rig. We offer mowing, landscaping, snow removal, and fert and weed control. The only thing we don't really mess with is irrigation.

The paint on the floor is an industrial floor paint from Sherwin Williams. Its holds up really well. We strip the trailer down and repaint everthing every winter though.

Maybe for your accounts it is but obviously it wasn't for his. Maybe he needed all the equipment and was able to service all his clients from one truck.

I sure would rather have a larger crew rolling around in one truck versus two smaller crews. One less truck payment, one less insurance payment and one less truck to plate. As long as no one is sitting around waiting with nothing to do then I don't see why not.

Hey everyone, thanks for all the compliments on my old setup. It was an impressive rig and I wish I would've taken pictures but before I sold my business we had two rigs like that running. I busted my ass for many years to get that business to that point and was able to sell it for a good amount of money.

The trimmer trap was homemade, made out of 1" square tubing. Very easy to make and worked better in an enclosed trailer than any product available to buy.

that was the second time you sold your business. Any insight on why you sold the second time???? Better job elsewhere? You said you missed the industry, and thats why you got back into the second time...so why did you sell again??? Just curious. Also, when you had them two crews running and sold the business...how many accounts were you servicing...how many ppl were working for you?
