Pics of truck/trailer set-up

Some of you know my trailer has the side gate and wanted to see it. It makes it so nice when I don't need the big mower to be able to get the 36" in and out without moving the 60".

What I bring each day when mowing:

Shindaiwa T270 and T260, Shindaiwa LE260 edger

Lazer 60"

TTHP 36"

Lawnboy 21" (one of two) or the Honda 216

Redmax 7001 blowers ( only one when I work alone, 2 with help)

Solo 4 gallon sprayer

Thanks.

6.5' x 12'

I recently picked up two yards that require the 21", so I only use the lawnboy one day a week. Usually, the 36" is on the trailer sideways through the side gate.

Still looking to get my truck lettered, just not sure what I want yet.

Nest,
How do you like your rack in the front of the trailer?
I just considered that when putting one on last week but wasn't quite sure it was a good idea.

I do also like the side gate,It will be on the next trailer...............

I have a rack on the front of mine also. I like the view from the truck and the fact it's out of the way of the side.

I really like it also. Much better driving vision, as was mentioned. I also use the trailer for mulch, dirt, etc., and it makes it easier to access it from the sides.

I was told to add another gate on a trailer similar in size would only be about $100-120.00, and it would be well worth it.

I'll get another pic of when it's loaded sideways, like it usually is.

I should've asked when I posted before.... was the side gate a standard feature or did you have it added on for an extra cost? What was the total cost of the trailer?
