Don't forget a set of traffic cones on your trucks!

Safety first.

Lets jump out of the truck and put a cone out 40 times a day... oh and the space it takes up... Unless your mowing off a highway, what is the point?

In tight neighborhoods when people are backing out it helps huge. It cuts down on the percentage your vehicle will accidentally be hit. I don't use giant cones, just 3 small recreation size cones. People tend to slow down around bright orange.

Conehead here , I keep em in the truck all the time. Putting cones out is cheap insurance. A friend of mine whose bobcat trailer got waxed on a side street came down to if there were cones out or not and how many etc. So I have just done it ever since. Besides that very little competition does it anything that separates you is better IMO.

Cones for us.......these textheads need a lot of visual warning to keep them from running right up into the trailer. Seen a case where person backed across the ramp and bent it. Said she seen the trailer but didn't know there were ramps
