I bought a 20ft by 10ft tandem with 2 landscape gates Custom

I am going to run 2 crews of 2 guys out of this trailer with 1 truck. Each ccrew will have a zero turn mover, hand mower , wippersnipper. I will drop a crew off and do my own with my worker. Has anyone done this for grass mowing.What are your experiences? Is it productive?

What I was trying to say was that I will be packing 2 zeroturn mower c/w bagger extensions, 2 puch lawn mowers, 2 trimmers, and probably a aerator and overseeder machine. Anyway what I was getting at is that I will be dropping one crew off to do a job driving to the next, doing it myself, and driving back to pick and load the crew I dropped off. Is this productive?

It sounds like you'll waste some gas, and get low productivity on the guys that you dropped off.

You must have some pretty wide roads up in Canada in order to handle the 10 ft wide trailer.

eh, i dont know how well that would work, i didnt know they made 10 ft wide trailers...Doesnt seem very productive, and the helpers will probably be standing around waiting on you, and thats a waste.

Not smart by any means.

Plus what are your guys going to do with the "whippersnippers" and such when not using them and working somewhere else on the property?...

chain em to the nearest fire hydrant? Maybe stash them behind the dumpsters?

oh and plus 10 feet is ******ed wide. Probably a wrong spec on the trailer.

there would also be a lot of unnecessary filling up of fuel.........you basically would have to make sure all the tanks are full at each stop for the drop off crew or leave them some gas.......and how are you going to watch that? chain it up with the trimmers and such.

So what is your reasoning behind this plan? Do you have a ton of lawns or a big account for these guys to do and stay busy at? More info plz..
