I am in need of a trailer with a ramp gate! Preferably 5x8 5x10 but I am open to anything near that size. Preferably open but I will also consider closed.

I am also looking for a 36" or 48" walk behind belt driven mower. Scag, Bobcat, Exmark ANYTHING.
This is going to be my second year in the business and I'm sick of lifting my two 21" push mowers into the bed of my truck, I'm also sick of cutting with them haha.

I am in the Chicagoland area and I will drive anywhere near Chicago to check out anything you guys have to offer. Thanks in advance!

I have a 2010 exmark metro. Sulky accelerator catcher 6.2 and jrco dethatcher. 3500 obo. I will be coming that way in the next few weeks to get a mower from another member on here. I can seperate stuff for a little cheaper price. Mower was bought new in 2011. Used by my. I love the mower, but would like to get a stander since I'm solo and will be starting pesticides and fert this year.

Hey guys thanks for all the replies. Michigan is a little far for me but thank you. My budget is relatively low haha but that Encore interests me. Where in Indiana are you? Can you send me some pictures of it?

$850

he set it aside for me because he thinks he might be able to find me a bobcat thats less than 2 or 3 years old for under $1000

as long as it is in good shape that aint bad. lescos are good solid mowers but one thing to know is there resale value is not very good. but it should work out good for you good luck with it.

i hope so, its my first walk behind mower. this is going to be my second year and all last year i had to deal with two push mowers and one of them was a 1989 troybilt haha. the carb is duct taped on but it still works fine! so this is definitely a step forward to me.

you got any trailers up there in wisconsin? like 5x8 or 5x10's?

I could meet you in Peru or some where around half way. I bought it last year so it's only one year old. I'd take $500

Hey thanks again for the sale. The problem I had with the right turn signal and right brake light was all fixed when I got home. It turned out that one of the connectors on my trailer wiring under my bumper was a little loose. I pushed it back together and now everything works haha
