Hey now... I pull my 4x8 trailer with a 36" Gravely W/B, and a Kawaski trimmer and blower, with my 1988 Taurus station wagon. I'm going off to college out of state in a few months so buying a truck would just be a waste of money.

That doesn't mean I do a ***** job... Far from it - I do better work than most of the companies I see around here. Granted I don't use a garden tractor...

Sorry to go off topic here, but how do you like your Kawi trimmer? What model did you get? I am thinking about getting one soon.

how about a 1999 grand prix pulling a 6x12 trailer with a 48 or 52" scag ztr &36" scag wb. I would bet that he is a guy who took the GM buy out last year. He had nice equipment but time for a truck.

Thats funny! When I was 12 I rode my bicycle while pulling the 21" around town! I will say this though, atleast some of these people are trying to work rather than just sitting on their duff infront of the TV collecting welfare and other free government money every month...which is costing us more in taxes!!!!

It looks to me that he was just moving some things. Or, maybe he's so busy he has to cook and eat at the same time.
