When I was a teen I pulled the family push mover around town...one hand on the mower and one hand on the bike handlebar with a 1 gallon gas can bungie corded to the mower handle.

My son was doing yard work out of his Mazda Miata over the summer. Split-boom multi-tools fit fine in the trunk.
I use a dodge neon to run around town doing estimates. I can park it quickly in tight spot with my eyes closed, much faster and easier then the truck with or without the trailer.

When I was 16 I did it on my bike too.

When I started 4 years ago all I had was the neon, so I made do for a week then I installed a hitch on it and bought the smallest trailer I could find. Worked great for that year, then the next year I bought the truck and continued using the same trailer. The trailer was so small I could not see it behind me. I have since upgraded to an enclosed.

Thanks guys I have grown a lot since then and use my mower as my " trailer" next time I cut i'll snap a pic, blower on the deck frame and trimmer on the side. This set up was great but when I bought my first walkbehind this season fitting a 200lb + machine on the trailer would work but I had no way to get it in otherwise because the trailer is attached to the bike it would just lift right up. I would use it for mulch as well just bring the trailer and dump where its needed. Thanks for the replies!


Sorry for spelling and punctuation I am on the school bus aha
