Pictures and descriptions of everyone's trucks and trailers would be awesome! Maybe some of us have ideas that others have never thought of that would help us be more efficient or organized.

Under helpful lawnsite tools there is a section for this. Some people have posted pictures of their stuff. Some nice shops an equipment on there.

These Ideas are some that I came up with from junk I had sitting here. For these mods it cost me about $30 because I am somewhat of a pac-rat and I keep everything because "I might need it someday".

Here are some mods I did to my trailer to make life just a bit easier for me.
pics 1-3, This past weekend I put some in floor storage boxes in for those tools and other things that you like to have with you but always get in the way and mess up the trailer. My trailer is 6x12 so between the frame rails I made two boxes that are 22"x55"x8" and screwed them through the floor. I think they will work great.

The 4th pic is a "gas door" I put in. I had an access door for a Camper sitting here so I took the door apart and took the white panel out and then cut a hole in my trailer and used the red panel piece I cut out to replace the white panel for the door. Now I have a 1'x3' gas door on the driver side of my trailer so if I put fuel in the truck I dont have to turn the truck around to put fuel in the trailer. Notice the location of the crank on the gas caddy. I can fuel the equipment from the gas door too. I used the gas door this past season and it is a nice add on.

Last pic is a 2"x2" reciever hitch I made for my Toro Z from things Already had. All the Hitches I could find for my Toro were just a hole for a pin or I found one that was a 1.25"x1.25" reciever. This one I made allows me to use the 2"x2" draw bars I already have. My 9 year old son thought we should paint it with hammerd steel gray paint. He is my little helper. One of the properties I do is about 9 acres that is completely flat with no obsticles so I have a snapper hand hydromatic control 42" and he help me whenever he can so I allow him to run that and I cut right near him so I can keep a close eye on him. I know I should not allow him to cut with me but this property is one that I do for a family friend and when the business is closed so it is kind of a good training area and the only one he helps on. I know people like to bragg about thier kids but he is just amazing as to how he can handle things and how he picks up on things too. I hope he uses his smarts for something good when he becomes an adult.

let me know your thoughts are these things.

Kids are great, glad to see I'm not the only one doing this. I let him run my tiger cub on a lot of my flat properties. We ran side by side first of spring on his days off and by summer could handle it by himself no problem. I think it teaches them a lot about responsibility, respect, integrity and so much more. I would put him up against most adults on the same mower now. Very proud father of a 10 year old son. I do not let him use the hand held stuff yet, can't be to carefull with eyes and fingers.

I like the floor in your trailer, did you build the whole floor up to make those compartments or just cut holes in the existing floor?

I used 2"x8" with 1/2" plywood and cut holes in the floor. They hang down about even with the axel.

I ran a bunch of 4" screws down through the floor into the 2"x8". Im a 200 lb. guy and I jumped in the box and it was solid.

Those storage boxes are a great idea. Did you use pressure treated lumber so they don't rot and seal the area between the floor and box and all seems with any kind of caulk or sealant to waterproof them? My biggest concern would be the boxes rotting from water spray while driving down the road. It's a great idea, I might have to borow it. Thanks for posting it.

IdealLawnCare
01-09-2009, 11:57 PM
No its not treated but is used silicone on all the joints. When it warms up outside I am going to do an undercoating of some sort to keep them from rotting out. I dont know if I am going to just use a sealer or if I will do that roll on bed liner stuff or spray on undercoating. Anybody have any other ideas?

I like it a lot. I bought mine at an auction a few years ago. Mine is 30 gals. but it not only pumps gas into your equipment you can reverse pump so as you can remove fuel from equipment too. I only mow part time so when fuel is down in price I can fill it up for when it goes up again to save a few $.

For one of my next projects. Some of my customers want me to start doing weed control so to get started I bought a 50 gal. pull behind sprayer. Here is a link to a similar one.

http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200312267_200312267

I only paid $200 for mine. I will be making it into a truck mounted one this spring. I will remove the wheels and tongue and put it on some kind of skid and get about 300 ft. of hose on a reel.

I think this will work for a while.

No pesticide licenses required in Minnesota or somethin or do you have yours already? Love the idea of puttin those boxes down there. My only concern was the weight capacity of the lid but that could be reinforced and it looks like ya built it well

IdealLawnCare
01-10-2009, 10:43 PM
I am checking on the proper requirements needed for Mn. Looks like it cost $300 but I cant find anything about any training yet but I will continue to look for what is needed. Its better to do it right the first time around.

When the lids are closed they rest on a lip in the box.

The truck is parked in front of my plow and trailer in the garage. The garage is 50' deep. At the end of the day I can pull right into the garage.

And on the truck those are H2 Hummer rims with chevy center caps. Yes I change lightbars a lot because I buy and sell them on auctions and craigslist.

The box truck has been great. I bought it about a month ago and so far have just used it on one decorative concrete job. I'm not going to use it for any mowing, though if I got busy enough I'd love to buy another one and set it up just to mow with a dovetail ramp. I am having a small problem with the brakes being grabby when cold. I'll have to tear into it when I have some spare time. The GMC has been retired from business duty and is a 95% personal vehicle now.

oh, and that last pic is now my background on my comp. What size rims and tires? Those are some big meats

22's with 40's, 8" rize suspension lift with a 4 link conversion, I put a 6" RBP exhaust on it, and the engine performance i did alot to the truck, its got a Banks Ottomind Programmer with a Banks innercooler and a High Ram Intake, i had Accel Performance Injectors, and on the tranny i had Dana 80 axles with XDP 10.50 ring gears. Thats all i done to it but it was an extremely fast truck for a diesel, i tested it on a local drag strip one day last fall and it ran 11.6 on 1/4 mile run, that threw me off i could not believe it, that was faster than some GT mustangs that were running out there haha

What all does it have in it? If it's just stock, no chip or nothing, then yeah i can see why your gettin bad fuel mileage turning over 20's on 37's plus a lift cuz thats more strain on the drive train.

New fuel filters will help but i dunno if its going to help you gain4 or 5 mpg like you need, i would have a computer ran through it to see if anything comes up and find out why your losing fuel, thats not enough miles for it to be drinking diesel like that i mean its still a new truck pretty much

Thats a nice looking truck. The wheel flares look slightly a different red, did you paint them. I have a 2500 Chevy with black flares and I want too get them painted but they are not the smooth ones, they are textured so i don t know how well they would turn out.

Thanks, Yeah they were the factory black textured one. The place that did it primered them first then painted. It normally dont show up that bad, must be the way the light is hitting the truck.

Still looks good though. How is the paint holding up on the flares. How long ago did you have them painted.

I had it painted like that in 05 it has lasted great. The front is starting to chip a little mainly because i hit something but other than that it is good. The people that did it really knew what they were doing. Here is a pic of the front for you.

Nice truck, i have a 2500 crew cab and would love to lift it but its a work truck and do not see putting that kind of money into it to have it get beat up and what not.
