    Well, it's been awhile since ive been on here but i just couldn't stay away for the whole season. Just got sick of all the bashing and stuff so i needed a break, but, seems like things have calmed down so i wanted to get back on here! Quite a bit has changed in the last summer, it has been a good one and continues to be so i'm certainly looking forward to the fall season. For now, here's a pic of my new dump trailer, the truck (looks a little different now) and maybe something else if i can find it! Let me know what you think,

    -mike-

    btw...will be picking up a new billy goat 18hp leaf loader for the dump trailer as well as a new redmax ebz8001 blower and a new stihl fs110r trimmer next week :)

    those 2x6's look like overkill for leaf cleanups. other than that it looks good.

    The trailer is rated at 7,000lbs but i know it will handle a lot more than, this is a REALLY heavy duty unit! BTW, PM me your cell number so we can chat sometime!

    I will get some pics with all of the equipment on it tomorrow and post them up if i can remember my camera!!

    Hey G.M.

    Yes i did use decking on the sides as it gave it a much nicer and cleaner apperance over the 2*10's and saved a TON of weight this way! Glad to be back on the site!

    Thanks guys for all the compliments! I am really loving the dump trailer, it is making my life so much easier!!!

    Are you selling that truck when you get a duramax? That is a really nice truck you have now. That is the exact truck i want except with a transfer tank and a cb..
