    I don't market. I have a black truck and trailer. Usually, it starts off with them saying how nice my stuff looks. I either inform them I detail or they ask if I can make their stuff look like mine. Most is word of mouth. Depending on severity of the job, I get between $60 (regular maintenance wash/wax, no interior) to $480 (complete stripped interior, shampoo, undercarriage, engine, etc). Paramount is keeping stuff clean, whether washing before heading out or end of day.

    The paint on my truck. Notice, this is at night.

    The '98 Saturn, behind me, has paint just as clear.

    With all the issues with the 4mix Stihl is finally going back to 2 cycle. They will have a 94r coming out next year that is 2 cycle. I would wait on it to come out if you can.

    From another thread…
    I didn't want to have a lot of stuff hanging off the walls towards the rear where the X-One is parked because doing so would make it difficult for me to get on and off the mower and maneuver past the X-One. I also hang the backpack blower on the right side wall by the ramp so I want to be able to easily access that from the ramp or the side door…it protrudes out from the wall so far that I didn't want that hanging in the middle of the trailer either.

    If I enter from the side, I do have to step over or around the 21" to reach the tools. The shovels are the longest reach but it is still doable. There is just enough room between the 21" and the side wall for me to sidestep past the 21" (if i had anything more than a broom there I wouldn't be able to get by).

    I'm sure at some point I'll move things around and find better places for some of the things.

    I love your set–up. I wish I could be that OCD, but I never have enough energy lol.

    That has to be THE most efficient way ive ever seen a v-nose set up. props dude. seems a little difficult to get to the trimmers though. Nice mowers too.

    Thanks.

    As Monk would say, it's a blessing and a curse.

    Thanks.

    Actually, it's not difficult at all. I can remove and replace both of the trimmers and the edger without even entering the trailer. All I have to do is reach in the side door grab the shaft of the tool and pull/lift the tool out and replacing the tool is just as easy.
