If you have a 4 person rack, you can just have 4 people trim the hole yard and you wont even have to get the mower off...

I could call it "we only string trim" lawns and edging.
"thank you for calling, what can I string trim for you?"

Do you remove small trees?

"Yes, It'll be $10,000 because of the time involved to do it with a string trimmer!"

Thank you, tell a freind...

I might get pulled over if I have 4 people in a rack on my trailer.

Downfalls - it of course causes another point of resistance so expect your fuel mileage to go down.
As far as cost. I think it was roughly $125
I installed mine a little lower for that reason. I am sure that it catches some air but I think the mowers kind of break it up some. I do think I can feel it a little though.

Thanks! I figure the aluminum would be lighter.

I kept it simple, cause everyone assumes I do lawn stuff and I don't feel a need for an infinite list. I made it EYE catching and the Phone # readable from over 2 blocks away.
Yes, your sign does have a nice eye catching look to it.

So did you make that out of metal or what is it on?
