4
1 on truck
1 on trailer
1 on each of the ZTR's

Sound like your prepared for the worth.

I never thought about putting them on a ZTR or some other large mower. But since you drop like 5k on them

Putting a fire extinguisher on they is not a bad idea.
In case it starts on fire you don't run to the trailer and run back to find it torched beyond repair.

I will have to remember that once I buy One

Don't want this to happen again so I probably will get one to put on my walk behind...

Someone had a bad day LOL not me fortunately

Don't let this be your mower! Get one and mount it BEFORE you start your mowing!

Not having one is a gamble that I am not willing to take. Not having an fire extinguisher is like not having an first aid kit. You should have them and know how to use them.

i went out and bought one for my truck right after i was mowing for another LCO in town... and the 61 inch scag walkbehind caught fire. luckily he had fire extinguishers in all his trucks.... and the mower was spared. did some damage, but not too bad. especially when using blowers during the fall.... you want a fire extinguisher close by. ive had the leaves catch on fire from hot mufflers a few times.
