    I want want one of those tanks this year. I'm doing the same as you are..finding stuff to do, to keep myself busy. The next warm day I'm going to do all my spark plugs, fuel filters, air filters, oil, small repairs, grease, and a good clean out of the trailer. Stuff that annoys me during the season, I'm so excited to do in the winter, right before the season

    yeah, we are building and modifying shelves for the enclosed trailer and the same for the back of our trucks with open trailers(the truck use campershells) to organized tools and other things like blowers and string and gas cans etc. this is fun when not having to mow and stuff. mowers and equipment have been done since we have a heatedshop. cheers to a great 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :clapping:Yea, we're starting to get ready. Trying to get our walk behind in shape for the season. It has a hydro pump leak we're going to try to seal. Probably going to buy a power chute design ocdc for our 60" ztr. We fabbed one up for our walk behind - saved a lot of money, and seems as if it is going to work great. We're looking for a 14' or 16' trailer to haul our equipment - we've expanded so we can't use our 4' by 8' anymore for everything! Just bought a trimmer rack on ebay. Lord willing, we'll be ready! We start around the 1st of April.:clapping:
