Mwalz's Equipment And Pictures

Finally got the racks mounted and everything situated. Will upload a few pictures here and there. Mainly stripes because I do only mowing and a few odd jobs. What can I say I love stripes!Have 14 regular accounts currently, goal is 25.

My Equipment:
5x12 Carry On Trailer
2 Echo 225 Trimmers
Stihl 550 (borrowing from a friend til i buy one)
Craftsman Handheld Blower
Pack 'Em Trimmer Rack
Rackem Trimmer Line Spool holder
Craftsman Gold Series Mower(use it only 20 minutes a week)
Toro 36" Belt Drive(the workhorse)
48" Tractor Supply Tool Box
2001 F-150 4.7 V8(It's My Dads)

Everything Except Trailer Is fully paid for. Trailer is half paid for.

Just need to get a 2-wheel sulky now...

Are the thumbs adjustable on the end of the rack where the trimmer head goes they look like their welded in place?

Nice set up, reminds me of when I started.
If theres one word of advice I can give you, its THINK BIG!
Dream big, think big and dont let anyone steal your dreams, dont let anyone tell you to stay small, dont let the system bring you down and always remember where you came from.
Doing this for a living is a priviledge and dont let anyway tell you different.
Good luck and may you have Gos blessings

Everything is welded in place. The only thing that i don't like about it, which isn't a big deal, it's that you can't get a trimmer off below one. For example you have to get the top one off before the second one. Other than that i love it. We had to use spacers when mounting at the top because the fancy tube that holds the electrical wire got in the way. We also had to lift if because the sides were higher than the holes on the trimmer rack.

Love the trailer for sure! It's built very well, and has nice big tires on it. Love the Toro as well just sometimes i wish it was a hydro. The thing that bugs me is that occasionally the drive belt will pop off the spindles in gear 5, and it takes 10 seconds to get it back, but sometimes i will have to do it multiple times a day. Guy i bought it from says it does it, and he doesn't know why.

Here are the fire plans for the setup.

-Get some way to secure gas cans outside of tool box
-Get a bigger mower towards the end of this season
-Get a 2 Wheel Sulky
-Get my own backpack blower and a blower rack

So far that's all I need to get a complete setup. Also a full size truck of my own since all I have is that s10 you see in the background.
