Looks awesome! I really like your trailer... let me know when you outgrow it. The new mower looks great too- you should be able to make tons of $$$ with it. Did you get your license yet? Good luck this year!

Sure thing man. I can give you the name of the place where I bought it. Its in flint michigan but its worth the ride because its all square tube not round or angle iron. As for the license, get that next month and ill be 100% on my own. The new mower is treating me great... Started right up first crank again this year.

That info on the dealer would be great! Also, how much did you pay for it? Good luck with your license... it will really allow you to expand your business. Do you have a truck yet?

Okay cool. Ill go dig it out of my filing cabinet right now. I have the number 1300 in my head for some reason. BUT... I also got the beefier axle because I haul my lifted ezgo around on it too. Right now I'm using the dads truck. He,s got an 04' gmc 1/2 ton 4x4 crew cab. Its long but hey lol. I'm looking at two out in pa this week hopefull. Two 1/2 ton reg cab shortbeds both 4x4.

4300 out the door. And the steel catcher was a garbage pick deal so that was free and its custom fit. Had to make my own bracket.

Thanks Joe! Once we get a bit into the season and I see how my current trailer works out, I may opt to go for a 5'x10'. I'm bookmarking your link- they look really sturdy! Thanks for your help,
Jon

Thanks. Oh and just if your wondering... Im a solo operation as shown in my sig. I also work for another guy part time during the summer since i only have about 15 residential accounts. Average yard around me is 20 a cut and that includes trimming blowing edging and cutting.

Good looking setup! Is Encore a brand or model for the Z? ive never heard of it, but i like the catcher!

Good luck this season, get a 3/4 ton truck if you can, i wish i had one!

Yes, encore is very popular here in my area as well as scags. The catcher is a rack em' that I garbage picked and custom fit just to fit my mower. Works great! Only complain is that if the grass is really thin or dry it pummels you with dust but I'm going to rivet the inside of it with window screen to try and reduce that problem.

Alright now that you guys have seen my trailer... ill fill you in on some info... today was the day where i was put to the test. My dad's truck is a crewcab regular bed (yea long)... and i had to back up this trailer into my drive which is a single car drive. lets just say... that was a trip! Ill get pics up of this truck im talking about. But it was hard! for my first time i thought i did okay... so until i get my truck... which will be a reg cab short bed... ill be using my mom's trailblazer so i can back this thing in easier. Thank God!
