I drive around town every day and notice something odd. ( at least from this point of view).

Why do I see LCOs carrying their trailer around town completely full with all the equipment they own. To me this is a great time to unload that ZTR or walkbehind and loose some of that load for fuel conservation pruposes.

Unless you're mowing in the winter ( Bermuda is dormant here) why carry all your equipment around town day in and day out?

Just an observation and curious; not critizing...

They might have fall clean ups to fininish, and most companies around here use a ZTR for fall cleanups so..........

Well that answers early winter questions and the need to either mulch or bag leaves. I didn't think about that.

But the rest of the year?

You could leave that thing at home for at least 3 months without having to carry it around town all day.

Maybe they have self-esteem issues and by carrying their equipment around it gives them a warm, fuzzy feeling...

Advertising..........IT got your attention and Im sure others saw it also. When spring comes they might remember the name on the trailer.

I have noticed that too. Im from your neck of the wood too, and we have been having some crazy weather, one week it is warm and the next week its cold. Just last weekend I had to mow my yard to keep it looking fresh from all the confused grass that want to grow a little. They may be doing the same thing for there clients.

Im not makeing excuses for them but that is the only thing I can think of.

I've been dragging some of my junk around all week, we had to cut six properties today. Tommorrow, if it does not rain, we have several to take care of.
