Looks good, Eric. A buddy of mine has a 77' x 18' PJ with out the dovetail. We were able to get two full size ZTR's and a 36" WB on there.

How's the truck working for you? In one of the pictures, it looks like it may be leaking fluids? Any problems?

The truck WAS leaking power steering fluid, but I had a friend rebuild the pump, it dont leak no more:) Other then that its working good. Next season I am getting a dump insert for it I think.

Have no clue on capacity, 7k maybe?

No, unfortunately it had to go. Mainly because I don't really have room to park one trailer, let alone two lol. Also I did need the money from it to buy this one.

You need straps on those mowers.

Not sure about your gas can bungee cord.

Do you have a med card? if your carrying gas you have to have one .

Not that it makes it right, but NO ONE here straps mowers down. I need to do something differnt for the gas cans, may weld up some kind of rack for them. No med card either.

For what its worth, I would sell out before I would strap down all the mowers after every lawn. I despise ratchet straps (maybe it's just because of the cheap junky ones I buy, i dunno...)

Why did you get brakes on only 1 axle? Is that dove tail 2' long?

Because I did not see the need to spend $200 more to have an extra brake (read as this is the one they had this size in stock, I will put a brake axle on the other one next spring). Yes, dovetail is 2'. I woulda been MAD if i didn't get the dovetail, this trailer sits a little higher then a lot of utility trailers and the mowers WOULD have got stuck on the gate. This trailer with the dove tail doesn't drag in places my other trailer, without one, did.

Nice trailer, like the dovetail. For your mowers you should get a set of Fastraps from Landscaperpro.com. Only $27.50, I just use one per mower, takes about 2 seconds to strap it down and less to loosen it so I can back the mower out. Local dealer wanted $45 for the same kit.

Dump the Walker into the bins, dump the bins into the truck.

Yea, that is a bummer...at least you have one of the best now:)

$2129.91 with tax (still have the paperwork sitting here on my desk :laugh: )

very nice setup Eric. hope the walker is treating you well:)

Yep, am lovin' the Walker.

Looks great, should last for many years.

Should yes, but I'll probably get bored one day and go trade something off (I have a feeling the trucks days are limited, as soon as I can get that paid off its GONE (how sad is that making payments on a 1984 truck...))

Strapping down equipment is for pussies. I just load up and go, never had any problems if you load your stuff right.

Loading your stuff properly isn't going to keep it in place during an accident. I'll be the first to admit that alot of DOT rules are pointless but this is more of common sense.:hammerhead: Why do you think tractor trailers are required to strap freight? They load it properly but stuff shifts while going down the road. Last week I saw a guy towing a fairly large JD Farm tractor on a gooseneck trailer and it wasn't even strapped.:dizzy: Guys like this are just asking for trouble.
