      Hey saw n mow you have any problems with the deck scalping with the mz.I read some where the decks dont float very well. Im looking at buying a badboy mz48 and just wodered how you liked the cut of the mower

      when i first started mowing i had an old boat trailer that we converted into a utility trailer and it sat really high and we used the kind of ramps you have in the link im not a big fan of them because i actually had a riding mower fall off of them and thats when i sold that old heap of a trailer and bought me a 5'x8' with a removable gate your best bet even if you dont use it very often is to get one with a gate you might not use it as much but when you do youll be glad you had it instead of the ramps plus the ramps take up trailer space or bed space if youre having the trailer built to your specs they can make the gate removable for little or no money extra

      not really sure which model truck you have but sounds like you could use a pair of these also http://www.suspensionconnection.com/cgi-bin/suscon/air_bags.html ive been looking at getting some of these for a while now but with racks and all my trailer weighs right at 1300# and the trailer has a 3500# axle so you could haul 2200# of wood in the trailer and X amount in your bed im not really sure about firewood weight because we dont really need it down here very often unless you use it for primary heat but check out those air bags thatll help you carry a little more also

      yeah the 7'x12' is actually an oddball size its tough to find one but that extra 7" makes a big difference in amount you can haul but in price also

      hey there the trailer is a 7'x12' with a 3500# axle which should be perfect for your needs.

      Yeah, the hour meter is $50 I believe (I will have to see if there is a place to install it), and it was purchased, but it was brought back the same day, so it will be sold as a new unit (or a demo persay). My name is Kevin too...

      Ed got it, took it to his church yard, started mowing with it, and called me about an hour after he left the shop and said he wanted another commercial mower instead. He didn't clean it up or anything, it is here. You look under the deck and can tell how much it was mowed with. They don't have hour meters, but I would guess 1 to 1 1/2. Just give me a call when you get ready and I might have it still. (580) 317-7672. $3355.75 with tax and everything...

      Hey man, noticed you were looking at the MZ. I have a demo that was mowed with on 1 yard (instead of buying it he got the Pup series). It is the 48" with the 26hp Briggs ELS. I would sell it for $3100, but not sure how far you are from me. I am about an hour from Texarkana, but I go to Little Rock alot, and I have to go to Batesville in October.

      slope on the first 2 might cause issues, but probably doable, get to know the mower first, then attempt. About the same slopes that I mow.....just be careful!

      The rest of the slopes should be no problem at all.
