The trailer came with it, it's a Carry-On, and that's one of the reasons I bought this model. The box is a handy place for trimmer line, small gas cans, straps, 2-stroke oil, etc.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

I wanted to find some info on their axles, brakes, etc. Lemme know if you know of anywhere to get that kind of information.

Thanks
I love my NNT. Its been great to me so far.The only place that might know something is a dealer in rhode island that I bought mine from. I can find the title with the name of the dealer if you want. Just give me a PM and I will find it for you.

And I put 4 self tapping metal screws through the bottom of the box and into the frame. The box was great till I jackknifed it

The toro z 355 is a good bagger/mulcher. I had the opportunity to demo a walker diesel for about a month and really liked the quality of cut/bagging but it couldn't handle the terrain. Kept getting stuck and no hill stability. The toro is a baby beast of sorts. Plenty of power, bags just as good as walker, can operate with one hand, and hill stability like a mo'fo. Awesome mulcher. Just bolt in the mulch plug take the tension of the blower pulley and your mulch'in. Scag made a very similar mower. I had my choice between a walker and a toro. Toro hands down for me.

I have found the cut to be better than good and the suction is something you have to watch. I make sure my belt is in good shape, the bagging baffles are in and the impeller is cleaned out regularly. I have taken the impeller all the way out. Then wire wheeled and coated the housing with POR 15. I have also ground all the nicks and burs off the impeller blades. The hopper really gets packed.

What your doing must be working with 84 accounts, but you could always rent a shop/garage or rent a large storage unit.

I live 2 mins from Tool shed and they sell a ton of them. He cant keep them in stock. He offers a full 1 year warrenty on everything. I bought a 6.5x12 2 years ago with the mesh high sides and only paid $900. Over the winter he has awesome deals. I think they are made in the carlisle area.
