I have been meaning to post some pics of my setup. Finally got around to it. Most everything is new this year. This is my first year, started with 2 accounts and up to about 10 right now. Hope to get a chevy half ton or 3/4 ton with a plow for the winter. Tell me what you think!! Here are the pics, enjoy!!

Why are there walls up? Are you going to hang something on them? Bad choice of wood though, that stuff is all glue and chipped up boards. Rain will warp it bad.

Ya I should treat them with something. Probably should have gone with better plywood, I'll have to see how they hold up. I'm not going to hang anything on them, I have trimmer racks. They will only go on in the fall and for mulch jobs or debris hauling.

Looks good. I would not have chosen that for the trailer sides. Plywood would have been a better choice. Do you have a blower?

Nice equipment, trailer should suit its purpose well for at least this year

Thanks for the comments. I have a blower, but it s a pos weedeater. I plan on upgrading to a stihl or echo backpack before the fall. Deere 615, the trailer does work good but it is a little small. I hope to upgrade to a 12 footer and use the small one for landscaping, clean-ups, and brush hauling. However I would then need a shop. I love ur trailer deere 615, it is very clean and neat. It looks like you put some time into building it!

andys pet rock, those are actually the mounts for the jrco dethatcher, I can post some pics if you would like. I don't think that it is the same thing as the leaf plow. The leaf plow would be sweet though!

I like that little trailer, it would be great for getting in and out of some of the water front homes w/tight turn arounds here in my area.

Thanks! Its been a great trailer so far. It is a carry on 5 x 8 with high mesh sides. It has the heavy duty tires and 3000 lb axel.
