    Petr, Nice setup but, one suggestion take that JD trimmer and toss it in the trash and get yourself a real trimmer. I had one like that I mainly used it as a stick edger but it was too d@mn heavy and did'nt have the power I needed so I went out and got a Stihl FC110. More recently I bought a Shindaiwa T230 to replace an Echo SRM230. Look into Red Max, Shindaiwa and if you find you like them look into Echo ect.But, if you do buy an Echo go to a dealer stay away from HD. Also you could look at other brands like Stihl,Cub Commercial,Husqvarna,Maruyama and even JD's pro stuff. What I said is just a suggestion nothing more.

    Awesome setup Peter, just stay in school and don't let your business make your grades slip.

    Nice set up.One thing I would consider unless I don't see it is a vent on sides or top of trailer to help with venting fumes...

    I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado. V8 with the long bed.

    Yea, i don't think the guy gave me an option for vents. ITs not really a problem, As soon as the door and the back gate are open, it airs out within secconds. So its not that bad yet.

    As for grades, their doin good.. I work my a$$ off the 1st 3 marking periods (NO work) so i can slip a little in the last. Im a senior in highschool now, so i will be getting senioritis in a few weeks. Anyone knows what that is will understand.. LOL i got accepted to the college of my choice and things are doing well for me and the business. - Peter P.S. thanks for the compliments!
