My buddy Scott just got one a few months back and he loves it. He keeps all his supplies in it instead of the tool box on his truck. Also your equiptment stays cleaner. I have a bunch of Oak trees in my yard.

With my open trailer I'm hurrying home every time it starts raining. Sometimes it's only a 15 minute rain and I wish I would have just stayed out there rather than come home because even though I may not be able to mow I can at least trim hedges and stuff so I don't get too far behind. With an enclosed you can stay out there in the rain without worrying about equipment getting soaked

my equipment fires right up when wet also I was just looking. I like being able to store string and edger blades and hand tools in side the enclosed trailer. I guess I have to much spare time today.

We all do. I'm actually reading the political forum which usually only nauseates me.

those scare me!! I am trying to figure out how to grow the company with out hiring guys first. I want the jobs then hire to fill them. but I can't do them all myself to save money then hire the guys. All the guys I have had were drunks, pill heads, or illegals . no matter what I pay that is what I get.

That's the kicker you have to be able to afford to grow. Waiting to hire until after you have the work rarely works. I have had great luck with temps from Labor Ready. I only use them for installs and sod though. Not many machine ready guys have come through.

I will try that. I have a degree in landscape design but have almost given up on landscapes because I can't get good reliable help. I have reigned to all my jobs by myself. So I can't pick up to many big jobs. I guess I will eventually find good people and then grow. The growing is the easy part.
