Kevin -

The weedwacker rack and backback blower rack was purchased through Lesco. You can get them online at a couple places but they are all within five bucks. The others shelves to hold handheld blowers and sprayers we custom built, then just put eye hooks on the wall and secured them with bungee cords. As far as the cabinets this is what I would reccomend. We took measurements then went to a local store that accepts donated household materials that they resell to benefit local community groups. They had lots of cabinets that people took out of their kitchens when they upgraded, most of which were in pretty good shape for $15 or so. Or check the local paper, people will dump them cheap. These are just a few ideas for equipping the trailer. The heavier items I would secure really well. You'll figure it out real quick after a couple trips around the block what moves around and what doesn't. Also we have an air compressor up front with a splitter. One goes to a recoil up front and the other runs to the back along the ceiling encased in PVC pipe to the back corner so we have air access in the back to avoid pulling a machine up along side. Plus we can run two airtools at one time this way to change blades faster.

Hope this helps.

Yep, I know Roy Meglie. Well, I know who he is, I see him around alot. I have a friend who used to work for him. I think he is using Flexdecks on all his mowers now. If I'm not mistaken, he is using them on his Country Clipper ztrs. I know he has one on his Exmark walkbehind too.

DLCS - you are correct - the country clipper is one of the old original style decks, and it was the one I realized how well it worked on the ZTR - that is one reason I knew what it would do when demoing to dixie chopper for the ZTR - He also runs one on a 36" eXmark -about a 1985 model - says it bags great and mows about twice what the original did - Also runs one on his 855 or 955 utility with a 72" main deck - in fact slammed the flex-deck into a bridge abutment and told me not to change anything as to the way the bracket was designed as it did nothing to the flex-deck - it just slid the tractor front end sideways.

Dinasour?

So the best hen in the hen house is a dinasour huh? I won't take it personal because yes it is the old SSZ52 1996, BUT.... yes I use it everyday, It'll cut with the best of them(not with a 7.5mph ground speed) but quaility, cuts as flat as a board, hydros will still jerk you like they were new, 1200hrs, 2nd motor ,yea I know about kohlers, stripes better than my deere ( neither have a striping kit), And from the sound of some other guys I do have a use for it. In the fall it has a leaf plow that slides in the front end and is a REAL time saver, not to mention tarps! So don't count this mama out yet. Its not as fast as some but it'll cut better than alot.

by the way bushhogboy.. are you the one who made a v blade out of plywood for your mower to plow snow and push leaves? Don't rag my stuff because right in your profile its says fixed deck, cracked deck and what ever else. She still cuts like new and does not have a crack, weld, or bend to her. Sorry I just read your post again, thats what kind of mower you have.
