2007 Pace Shadow 8.5x20 Enclosed Trailer. Picked it up this season for $4500and was only used for storage since purchased new so the inside is still brand new!!

Wish all my houses were like this one. Unfortunately this is my friends parents house and I only get to do a spring cleanup and thatching on it every year. Hoping he gets tired of mowing it soon and hires me!!!

My customer insisted they needed their yard thatched pronto!!! I insisted the yard would be way too wet with all the rain we've had and that the property is wet for most of the season. They insisted to try and this is what happened!

looks like a nice setup. I would have made the customer pay to have your mower pulled out and repaired any damage you did.

Im out of northcentral CT area. Mainly Enfield, Somers, East Windsor, South Windsor, Windsor Locks, Ellington areas.
In the yard I got stuck Im waiting for it to dry up a little bit. Im gonna pound the ruts outs, fill in with top soil, and apply seed. All paid for at the owners expense ofcourse. I was thankfull I watched Swamp Loggers which honestly helped me get unstuck. The yard was too wet to drive my truck on so I walked through the woods and grabbed as many sticks and branches as I could. Stuck them underneath the tires and layed them in front and back of the mower. Had to rock back and forth but I eventually got out and was left with that mess.

Just finished installing my Jungle Jim trimmer and blower racks. Couldnt pass up on the offer ($169 for both pieces including free shipping!!!) Ive read a few post regarding these racks and in my opinion they are well built and do what their designed to do. After hanging the trimmer rack I found out Ill have to lower it about 8 inches so I can fit the 3rd trimmer up top. Right now the engine clips the edge of the door!!

SouthernPride,
Yes I did take your recommendation and buy them from ATVexpress. Fast shipping, great price, and so far the product seems to be doing a great job.

AH:cool2: That makes me feel so good man you don't even know. Glad to help out. For the price you got EVERYTHING for, my local dealer would charge you that for HALF a trimmer rack lol.

Like I said I knew about it, and decided I wanted to help out all my lawnsite buddys. I run the exact same trim/blow racks except on my open trailer. The ONLY thing I wasn't happy about was that you need 2 locks for the blower rack where as you just need 1 for the trimmer rack. (Doesn't really matter for you since you have enclosed, so I'm sure you don't have to lock em up) It's also a good thing too I guess cuz when I unlock my big blower I don't have to worry about RElocking the little blower up top.

I wonder how many ppl took my word and bought these (all the ones who did but didn't say anything in thread)

Glad you did and put some $$$ back in that wallet. As if gas prices aren't pretty tough on us already. Again, your setup looks LEGIT! :usflag:

Guess one of my customers didnt think I looked good enough for them. Gave them a call today before I started cutting her property to make sure she was still on board for 2011. She called back and said she would be doing the lawn herself this year and was in the process of hiring a handyman to do work around the house and mow the lawn. This customer is my #1 PITA, fertilizes and waters the **** out of the lawn so its always 6" tall and wet, always complains if my mower puts the slightest swirl mark in the lawn from turning, always looks shocked when I quote her prices for work (shrubs, bed edging, sping and fall cleanups).
This lady is 75+ years old, has a 21" mower, and I wish her the best, but I give it a couple months before she asks me to do the property again.

Don't sound like it had anything to do with "looks". These type customers are a breed all their own. The "all race/age/type pita" breed. Sounds like you actually took a step forward by losing her.

Would you rather have 200 customers like her or 50 of your best ones? I know my answer.
