I'd give my left nut for a 14' trailer.



Hmmm... you wouldn't be interested in trading, would you?




The way my driveway is situated, I can get my truck/trailer backed in and have enough room for the wife's car to get out. A bigger trailer would not allow enough room for her to get by. A 10 foot trailer would still work, but it's pointless to "upgrade" just to gain 24" of space when everything fits in the 8' trailer as it is. (barely)

Hope everything goes well for you and you fill the rest of trailer with more equipment soon!

Thanks the only thing I'm lacking on right now is a back pack blower which is next on my list. Come spring time i want to get as many lawns as i can.. right now its just make it by and pay the bill. I'm gonna hand out flyer this week i think..

I feel you on that man. I started out with just a paulman 20" push mower, a troybilt(weedeater/edger), and a crappy weedeater brand leafblower. I can't say I've improved as much as you have yet, but I finally got my first commercial weedeater(Cub Cadet) and run a 21" self propelled. Guy few blocks down runs a kubota. How do you like it?

I have the 54" version of that mower. They are great mowers and leave a great cut. Just watch the springs on the deck of the mower they like to break.

I love the machine it has made production so much faster and easier… I have 4 full years of physical damage on the machine and the trailer… I have the stihl fs90r trimmer and love that thing. i even have the saw blade attachment so it makes brush cutting even faster.
