New guy from TN

Just signed up a few days ago. To give you a little history on myself I started out in the mid 90's working for a buddy of mine on my days off from my full time factory job. My buddy sold the business to another friend of mine but i decided to go out on my own. I started out with a 52' Ferris walkbehind and just kinda done it "under the table". Now I will be the big 40 next month and have been at this same factory for 22yrs and am really wanting to go lawncare fulltime. I am now running a 60" Big Dog Diablo, 52" Snapper Pro SW30 walkbehind, Echo 770T & Echo handheld blowers, husqvarna weedeater, Echo HC-165 hedge trimmers and Echo PAS 280 split shaft with attachments. I went out on a limb this spring and got my BL and Insurance. I have three business accounts and 20 residentials. I also do all the work by myself and am still working my fulltime factory job while my wife is a stay at home mom with our 9 month old little girl. Any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thanks...

Nice to see another Middle TN guy on here! I'm out of McMinnville. I've got a question, where did you get your trailer? I really like that dovetail and smaller gate.

Really i have never heard of anyone around here getting a ticket for it and i have never been stopped or anything. I have a few friends that are State Troopers and will have to ask about it. Oh and good luck to you also.

I bought the trailer in Lawrenceburg back in the spring. I dont remember the name of the place but will look it up if you want me too. The gate is actually a 4 ft gate. Its a tube trailer and the gate is tube also and I tell you its LIGHT. Had a buddy make the basket on front and I already had the trimmer racks.

I would like to know what the place is if you don't care to look it up for me. I've been in the market for a nice tandem trailer here lately.
