I've been on this site for a little while now learned a lot and seen a lot of all of you guys' stuff; was cleaning the garage/shop out and thought to take some pictures to start my own thread up. I'll try to keep this updated throughout the seasons, thanks for looking.

Found it on a driveway we pulled up to for a leaf clean up last fall, we ended up bringing it to a like place they take sick,hurt or abandoned animals. I'll tell you this much, baby squirrels like rice and mangos

Nice setup.

Thanks, not exactly where I want it but not to far away I think. Wish I had bought a 52inch turf tracer rather than the 60inch:hammerhead:

Haha I'm guessing in your signature you meant Lesco 4gallon Back Pack Sprayer?

I see you have 2 brush grubbers. Do you like them? Do they work well?

I love them ... they grip tight as all hell and you can get the entire root ball out but when you wanna take them off they're spring loaded so there is no effort ... I will say they arent great when you have to pull a lot of stuff out because of the effort it takes to drive,reverse, attach, detach but if you're doing just a few or have someone with you they can't be beat ... my friends pulled a bunch of junipers with it by attaching it to a bucket loader by chain and lifting upwards rather than pulling ...

Finally picked up a new 21" ... I've been using this old weed eater that I put a B&S motor of a craftsman and handles off another mower ... it finally died on me ... went to home depot and picked up a Honda ... not commercial but we use the 21" at three properties and I'm not paying $1200 for a 21" ... anyways I'm happy with it ... its got a dual blade system and cuts very very nicely ... makes me interested as to how the commercial one cuts ... anyways here it is

well it wasn't cheap haha ... this one was $426.93 after taxes :usflag: ... they have some way better prices on Toro's and LawnBoys ... Self Propelled as low as like $250.00 but Toro has the Briggs and I can't get behind that and Lawnboy A) never really impressed me besides there 2 Stroke B) Kohler Motors aren't really my favorite ... And honestly you just can't beat Honda ...

These Racks are the ONLY trimmer and edger racks on the market ... the rest are glorified shelves as far as I'm concerned

My old phone was so beat that I never got around to taking any pictures ever. Did a small cleanup on this property and it was a slow day so I decided to mow they're lawn (we don't usually cut this property as the owner likes to do it himself, says its the only exercise he gets lol)

Had a local company make my signs and they changed my fonts and layout around a bit and I absolutely love it. I thought it looked a bit gimmicky at first but it has really really really grown on me. I cant wait to get the truck vinyl and the trailer signs put on.

How does the lazer and walkbehind fit on the trailer?

terribly lol ... I dont have the turf tracer anymore (huge regret I liked it way more than the lazer) but honestly the walk behind and the lazer fit on the trailer just fine, but that is it. I can't get the blower on and the 21" on they have to go in the truck bed. I'm looking to upgrade to a 16ft trailer. I should have honestly got a 16ft to begin with and its a huge kick in the ass that I didn't. But for just the two mowers its the perfect size.

Thanks for the response. I only have one account where I need a 21 so fitting the 2 plus the 21 isn't a big deal.

yeah but if you want my opinion plan ahead. Its better to buy a 16 or 18 ft once then have to sell the 12 ft for less than you paid and then buy the bigger trailer. plus if you get 2ft to 3ft mesh sides on a dual axle trailer you've got a really nice way to transport a very good amount of mulch and the likes.

I would get a larger trailer. But some of the areas I work have small parking spaces. My expedition and 12' trailer are already to big to fit in some of them. I can haul 5 yards of mulch which is most of the mulch jobs I do, larger ones get delivered.

Thanks man, I hate to sound so opposite of modest but I KNOW! haha ... I'm so ecstatic about the way they turned out I feel they just grab attention in a good way. I'm never "going through" a website again for this kind of stuff.

True around here the mulch is about 15 more per yard delivered so I like to be able to haul as much as possible myself.

Dang. :dizzy: The most I ever get charged is 40 per load, I think up to 20 yards.

Per load or per yard?

Around here it is like 18 a yard if you pick it up and like 33 if they deliver.

40 per load for the delivery fee.

Haven't Posted pix in a while, found some so I'll share, I really really wish I had before pictures these we're DISASTERS!!!! Obviously none of these are "After" pictures. The last image was basically a small forest before we tore it all out. Eventually it was reseeded. (owner didnt know whether to put grass or a bed there.)

Shout out to Timbrens absolutely a MUST have product for ALL pickup trucks. You're not getting the most out of your truck with out these. Look at the size difference. In this case bigger is both better and important.
