Thanks Copa I will post some pics when I get it. It's being built out right now as we speak. They got the truck on Friday with the body on it and started putting the wood on the inside the same day. As far as my building, I am also in a residential area and it is kind of a tough call. Just try to stay in good with your neighbors and feel them out to see what they will tolerate! With the hedge trimmers, just check that shaft every now and then and see if you are getting an indention where it rests on the rack. Mine were rubberized to and had the problem I was talking about, although it was an edger with the guard on it. Happy cutting this year!!!

This is how I keep my dump trailer battery always charged and ready to go. I can still dump the trailer even if the battery is/was completely dead.

I really need to just get it over with and get my CDL. Max dump I could do now would be 12k as 14k would put me over 26k combined. I had a 14ft 14k with a different truck that had less of a GVWR. Had to sell it and am in the market for another but with the current truck I'm over for a regular drivers license.

Thanks for the info.

Trying to post some pictures using an URL, they won't upload. Anyone has a clue why or how to do it? I'm trying to use my IPAD.
