    Thats cool. Have you seen the turf plots since then? Cummings was getting some cool stuff going and getting funding to expand. Grown a lot from when I was there and so I can imagine it looks much different from when you were there.

    No I haven't been back in 10 years. I would like to but when I go home there is never enough time. Just like everything I guess. Where is Pittsburgh.

    Just got the upload thing figured out again. Anyways here's the East Texas Proscapes Train. Had to get some side mount boxes. Had heads and fittings everywhere inside the truck. Really happy with the job Performance trailers did on my trailer. 100% custom. They were running really behind on getting it done, but made it all right by upgrading me to LED lights. Something I can never justify the cost on but can appreciate the benefits of long bulb life.

    Mind putting up a few more pictures of the trailer? Been thinking about getting mine redone with a side gate. Truck and trailer look good by the way!

    Nice trailer, you are starting out right! Why did you decide to go with low sides instead of 2" solid/mesh or 4' sides?
    I will definitively get a side gate on my new trailer, works great with a 36" walkbehind.
    We need to get you off of stihl :)

    Thanks! Been really pleased with it and really like the side gate. This was my first side gate trailer and really like being able to load the 48" walk behind from the side. Gives me so much more extra space on the trailer. Will post more pictures tonight.

    Was about 400 difference for the 2' expanded metal sides a little more for the solid 2' walls and I am just not a huge fan of the 4' sides when it comes time to fuel. It turns into a jungle gym act to fuel mowers on the trailer.

    As for hand-helds whoever makes the dollars make sense is who's making it on my trailer. I have a fsx110 & fs250 weedeaters and a br350 blower that are 9 years old and haven't had to have them in the shop for any reason. Changed the air filter as needed, replaced a primer bulb and keep shafts greased. Figured that was $250 - $350 each that I have made back and then some with that long of a life. Now have a fc95 edger, br600 blower that make the trek out with us and love them too.

    Thanks! Boxes were like $210 a piece. 36" long boxes. Was all I could fit with the crossover already there.

    Did you ever send a PM? I can't find where I can send PM. Didn't know if I can receive them or not.

    Sorry for the dark picture. It was late.

    Drove by this the other day... Want to say... Hort Lesson #42: More t-posts will not bring this tree back to life. Gotta give someone an A for effort for driving 8 tposts 3+ feet in the ground.
