mine is, love it cause i can carry everything i might need, but have to admit, when i was doin bearings on it this year i used my open trailer for 3 days and that was nice too, didnt have all the stuff on there, just what i knew i would need.. But overall the enclosed was probably the best thing i ever bought

I just ordered a 7x16 v-nose Pace and can't wait. Instead of buying a 18ft. and paying about $400 more, i get a 7x17.6". From what I have seen that installing shelving would be a space saver than taking from your equip. space. You still have 16' and possibly more under the shelves. I did add 2 side vents and upgrade to radial tires.

Plus if you get a big enough enclosed trailer to me the only right way to do that imo is to have a deisel to pull it with. More money. So now your looking at maintaining another peice of equipment (A 16ft trailer.)


When I think about making a decision like this I think about the future and ask myself can the company expand into this? And when I think about running multiple crews out of a pickup truck and a trailer..... Well it's just not something I want to do.


Think about it. If you could have one machine that did everything on a mowing standpoint, would you choose that or choose to have 5 different peices that did the same as that one? [/i][/size]
that would work for the southern guys..............
