Works fine. I don't cut to many big lawns-longest is I think about 45min. I might want to get a 48 stander next year though

Echo BP Blower then my honds to suck all the leaves up, on bigger jobs I will either blow/chop all the leaves together with the quick or just use the bagger for the quick

Deere 615,
This is kind of off topic, but how hard was it to build that trailer of yours? Did you go off a set of plans? Did it require a lot of welding? Was it cheaper than just buying a trailer?? it looks like a very neat setup, I would like to build something like that but maybe a bit bigger.

My dad built it not me, It is way cheaper to go buy one. He spent just as much as it would cost for a new one and he got the metal for free and he didn't include any of his labor which was probably like 30hrs. He tig welded the entire thing, yes it was alot. he didn't have any plans he just looked at a trailer his boss had and built it off that.

Yeah, thats not a bad idea. The outside of your bed won't get scratched up like mine is. It shouldn't be that hard.

Ya, I have thought about it a bunch of times, but I just like to reach to get stuff and use the sides of the bed too much, maybe I will do it someday not sure yet. I would like to get a medium size dump trailer with some sides for next year

lol, too late the sides of my bed are all scratched up from brush scrap etc, I have touched up alot of the scraths but thats how it is with a work truck. Thats why I give redmax man a thumbs up for always keeping his truck so nice!
