    Thought I'd start a picture thread for my equipment.

    Here is my trailer...

    I'm including a photo of the shelf on the trimmer/edger rack where the poles rest in the notches to keep the tools from banging against the wall. The notches are lined with cork and there is a powerful "Rare Earth" magnet behind the cork embedded in the plywood. There is also a "Rare Earth" magnet taped to the pole. The magnets hold the trimmers and edger securely in place and all I need to do is to lift and pull to remove them and putting them back is just as easy…hang it on the hook and the magnets catch to hold it in place.

    I hope these pictures upload ok…had some trouble getting them uploaded before and I had to reduce the size…if these come out too small I'll take some new ones and upload those another day…hope this works…

    Forgot to mention…the orange hooks were purchased at Home Depot and they cost about $5 - $6 each…I think I spent about $70 - $80 on the hooks.

    Looks like you have a really nice working facility. Is that a rented industrial suite?

    I see the frontend of a GM van. Is that your tow vehicle?

    The building is my workshop that I had built on my property. My commute from my back door is about 50 feet. The shop floor is 1800 square feet with an additional 600 square foot loft where I have my office/showroom for my custom woodworking business. Right now the shop is still mostly dedicated to cabinetry/woodworking…some of the space near the overhead door gets used for temporary storage/service area for the mowers…I haven't decided how I'm going to dedicate space to the landscaping business but I know I'll have to do it soon.

    The vehicle you see is a GMC Savana 2500 and yes it is currently my tow vehicle…it's my work van for the woodworking business and right now it being used by the landscaping business as the tow vehicle. The van is lettered for the woodworking business which means that I am either always advertising for both businesses or I'm confusing the heck out people when they see the woodworking van pulling the landscaping trailer.:laugh:

    Here is some older pictures of the inside of the workshop before the office/showroom got anything put up there…

    I saw the privacy gate/fence, close proximity of the building, and thought it might be an industrial suite. It looks like the ideal situation, though. It'd be nice to have the security/obstruction you have there.

    I was thinking about a van, at some point. When I bought my Silverado, I was looking at vans. I chickened out, thinking about one as a dedicated vehicle. Now, I'm regretting the truck. I'd really like a Nissan NV, but, would "settle" for a GM. But, finding any nice, used, black van is difficult.
