You should try a stripe kit, that grass isnt fertalized or anything and it still stripes for me. I think the wider deck helps too, my 36" barely stripes.
I do appreciate my customers with nice lawns though.

Ok good, because that is what i am going to do once I get my 12' and another wb. Won't be a tandem, those are expensive, just single axle, get that and some trimmer racks/blower racks, then i will be set.

Sounds good, i would go used to avoid the expense on the trailer, mine is a home made, just make sure its structurally sound and youll be good. I only paid $600 for mine, and then fabbed the ramp with a buddy of mine.

As for blower racks, I barely use mine, my back up blower that i rarely use just sits on one, and my blower that i use daily i just throw in the back of the truck. Its just much easier to grab it than to have to un lock and unlatch it. If you can find a deal on some though might as well get them, just make sure they and the trimmer traps lock.

Yea but the trailers i find are 6.5' wide, and my mom doesn't want me driving one that wide since I'm only 16. Ad plus i don't have the cash at the moment, and she likes the idea of putting on a credit card too...

Makes sense, you dont need the tandem unless u carry a ton of weight like dirt or rocks. Mine is 6' wide deck.
