SGL Lawn Services Open Trailer

Yes, I have had this trailer for a year and a half and look forward to getting either an enclosed trailer or an NPR this year or next. Then I will use this trailer for a second crew or hauling debris and mulch. My father in law and I built all the backpack racks and extended the front of the trailer 3 inches to be able to get both my ZTR's on it for a few of my properties that are large. One step at a time and I will have what I want.

Looks like you use all that trailer. Looks good too. Did you do the mesh on the front yourself?

I really like how you mounted your back pack blowers on the cage. Can you get any closer pics of the way made the racks?

Nice stuff, how does that Zmaster compare to the Lazer? I'm assuming that its the 46" judging by the pics, what size is the Toro?

Ya know I'm selling my 2005 16ft enclosed trailer and I'm not too far from you.
