I would love to get a little bigger trialer, but this one is paid for and works. :)

Im also a snapper fan one of my first riders I ever had. Yeah, Im a big Richard Petty fan. I even got to go to his 40th B-day party when I was a little kid way back in the day, even got to sit and talk with the man for a little while. Good to see someone remembered the KING!

Yes I have been a police officer for 18 yrs. At the present I am a Lt over the patrol division. I can not wait until I retire and run my company full time. At the present I have inlisted two of my sons to help get the work done. I might loose one of them to the Coast Gaurd next year.

Nice setup. That trailer is packed full! I like how the hand held blower is mounted. Truck lettering looks nice too!

Are those all Snapper mowers and RedMax handhelds?

Thanks for the kind words!

The trailer is packed this time of year. The pine straw has started to fall so I take the Snapper rider out ... that High Vac is a little slow, but it gets the straw up in one pass. During the summer it stays home.

I glad you liked the lettering ... I think it turned out nice too!

All the mowers are Snappers ... I get great service from my dealer and the mowers have been good to me. Looking to add a 48 zero turn summer 08.

The handhelds are both Redmax and Echo. Both blowers are Redmax along with 1 weed eater, 1 stick pruner, a handheld pruner and my chainsaw. In echo I have 1 hand handheld pruner, stick edger and 1 weed eater. I love my Reds.

Nice setup. I like the redmax and snapper stuff. My closest dealer only sell redmax handhelds and snapper 21"s. And scag and wright for bigger mowers.

Great looking logo, and very well organized overall. As far as the fully laded trailer goes,...this is a GOOD thing. A larger trailer over time is all part of the growth game. Fill what you already have first, THEN go from there. Good luck, and keep it up!

thought I would mention that the design was drawn by my 14 year old son.

Maybe your son should go into graphic arts instead of grass cutting!! I would be willing to bet there is more money in it!

He does enjoy art but I think he really wants to be a rock star ... just kidding ... he enjoys the outdoors. Says he would die if he was stuck in an office all day.

He wants us to grow into a multi truck operation and make lots of money. I told him not to hold his breath but that with hard work anything is possible.

Me and my dad are going to run a big biz like that years from now. Next year we are expanding and getting bigger.

Looking at buying a bigger trailer .... maybe 14 or 16 ft .... not sure if my truck can handle it very well ... I bought the 6 cyl instead of the v-8 for gas milage... that was before the lawn company. The truck is almost paid for and I hate to buy another one ...

your truck will handle a 16ft trailer fine. It will just be a little slow. I pull a 16ft enclosed trailer @4600 lbs with my Silverado and I only got a V6. Snappers build one tough mower, I use a 1995 32" walk behind everyday cuts great and built like a tank.

Thanks for the info on the truck ....

You dont hear much about Snapper here on Lawnsite ... but I love mine. I am buying another one this season. Looking at a 48 Zero Turn with the blower and bagger.

Ever thought about a side gate for the trailer?

That trailer is probably the most secure one on this site! Which is good, and it makes sense since you are a cop.

The next one I get will have both a side and rear gate. I can not put a side gate on this one because of the way I have to carry my racks.

Thanks ... I had some stuff stole and refuse to give away my equipement again ... all the locks have the same key which helps.

Looking to add a new mower this year ... going to have to leave the old Snapper rider and on of the 21's at home to make it fit.
