Here is a pic of our expanded rig for '08. Our first stripes of the year are in the background. I'm trying to upload this pic, but, so far, no success. Will try again.

We're trying to mow most of our lawns at 3". That helps to keep it green among other things.

Very nice set-up. Good luck this season.

How does the Isuzu handle that trailer?

We were wondering how it would do too. It handles it very nicely and pulls the hills great. It's a real "trooper"!

What do your costomers think of the van?

A trooper is not a van. SUV

It's an Isuzu Trooper - an SUV. It's very nice looking - I might post more pics of our equipment later with a better pic of the Trooper.

We were thinking about painting the trailer black if we get a chance - but you like the green, huh? Well, we'll see.

We love the Fastraps! They're definitely fast and easy.

Do you like the smaller redmax trimmer? Tr2300s I believe? Is it powerful for 21cc?

We really like it. Actually, my sister uses it the most. It seems to have very good power for the size and weight. If you're doing a lot of regular trimming, I'd say it's the way to go.
Yes, it is the 2300.
Hey, how do you like your Wright stander?

Black is your standard color and does look nice. But I like the green because it makes it look like a lawn care trailer ie green=grass:)

I like the stander. I got a mulch kit for it which is a heavy piece of metal that goes underneath that blocks off the blades. I'll see how it mulches. The only thing is it is very heavy if you want to change the height. Have a strong person with you so they can hold it up while you adjust the spacers. I might get a tr2301s soon. I could use a lighter trimmer for everyday. Is it better on gas than the 25cc strato charged rm? My stihl 85s are bad on fuel. Every lawn you gotta stop and refill:cry::dizzy:

We really haven't taken note if the 2300 is better on fuel than the strato charged. The tank is smaller on the 2300, so I don't know if there is much difference.

Are those yellow things sitting on top of the trailer wheel packets of paper?

They're the boxes for the fastraps. We had just put them on.

Where did you get the box on top of the trailer? Did you make it or buy it? I suspect that is welded on the trailer or bolted?

Thanks

It was on the trailer when we bought it used. It is bolted on.
