That turned out really nice. A lot of great ideas implemented in there. As mentioned elsewhere, I put my "garden tools" down the right side wall, so I wouldn't have to be stepping over a mower to get to them. With your WB in there, the left side looks inconvenient to get access to. Also, props, for using cones.

I have mine lined with "e" track just high enough to catch the walker rear casters on the frame. I typically fill in between the floor and bottom of the e track with thin diamond plate. It offers great protection and weighs a lot less than other products. I always paint my floor and ramp annually, I have to use stair paint mix on the ramp or its deadly lol.

I put a strip of 3/4" plywood 24" high along the bottom of the trailer walls to prevent the sides from getting smashed up

Next time you're at Menard's, take a look at Pittsburgh Paints Revitalize. If I serviced anything in Decatur, I'd swing by and let you look at my floor. I've done some soliciting up there, but, no results, yet.

I use e tracking my trailer and use ratchet straps to hold things down. I have e track running the full length of the trailer, down each side. I'll use a ratchet strap to hold the walk behind stationary and not "skate" around. I haven't had a problem with the ZTR moving around, but I have straps available if I take a notion to secure it. I also use horizontal and vertical e track on the walls.

I also use Herculiner on the back door ramp and the 1st 18" inside the trailer for traction.

This is kind of a separate tangent, but how well do you guys like those stihl's with all the separate attachments? Are they as durable and powerful as the traditional equipment? And how does it compare price wise?

There are numerous threads that contain numerous pages of info on every brand. You'd be better served to checkout them, as we couldn't possibly post up all the differing opinions and options here. But, I like mine, for certain applications/jobs.
