Spare belts, trimmer line, 2 stroke oil, gas cans, volt meter, jumper cables, tow strap, rain coat, towel, water jug, tire plug kit, air tank or 12v pump, first aid kit, cleanex, sunscreen,

There is more in the truck than that but thats all I can think of. Even though it costs something a trimmer rack and blower racks for the trailer are good investments to protect the equipment from damage (the extreme lockable racks work well). Also faststraps to tie down the wheels are good and time saving. The trailer gate lift helper thingy's make your back happy. All those are things when I bought I said I should of got them sooner.
Looking for blown Kawi 29HP DFI engine's fd791d, whole thing, intake, throttle body, and electronic's. PM me if you have something you would like to sell.
