A couple months ago I was lucky enough to pick up this enclosed cargo trailer with light damage for $800. Its a 12 X 8. It'll fit two ZTRs side by side. It cost $150 to fix in less than a day. Its not as full now that I pulled out the 2 power rakes and the aerator. The two dumb dogs are my only crew. They normally do more harm than good but atleast they are company. Its been a tough year. I started out doing real well but I've lost 1/2 my customer base because of the economy issues.

The Husky is the W21 commercial and its a heavy pig but stripes nice. I've got a couple more 21" Honda commcials but I don't use them nuch these days. I had a older Walker that was my backup ZTR but since I've lost 75% of my ZTR work I sold it to help pay the bills. The little Hustler seems to do OK.

My blowers and trimmer aren't anything worth posting. Mostly just Echo, Tanaka, Husky. I like my walkbehind edgers. I weld several beads of hard surfacing rod on some of blades to make the blades last longer and get a wider cut.

I only run this setup on my ZTR jobs(1 day of the week:angry:) The rest of the time I run a little open 5 X 8 trailer full of 21" mowers being pulled by my 2005 1/2 ton because its less weight and resistance so I burn less gas. I purchased the ZTR at the beginning of the season because it was looking like I was going to have atleast 10 or more accounts with it, but it turned that only about 2 or 3 commited so its kind a waste of a mower. My 21" mowers are what makes my money for the most part. Kind of funny because Montana is so big but everyone has tiny yards.
