Metal angle vs solid wood it gives you better traction and it doesn't get covered in mud

If your ordering new, spend the extra and get 12k axles and electric over hydraulic disc brakes on the trailer. The brakes alone make an unbelievable difference.

I had to search but I found where he did say that.

Family changes everything and sometimes a decent paid "9-5" isn't so bad compared to the crazy hours of landscaping and business ownership. When you're young with zero attachments it's much easier to give all your time to your business. Even a full time with business on the side is much less stressful because you still get the "fun" of owning a business but much more security with a full time.

It's a tough battle when a family is involved.

Good luck to him and hope all the best!
