    I was just wondering what you guys usually carry as "extra" parts? i was thinking a few spark plugs, maybe a belt, some bolts and nuts, maybe like a quick patch kit in case of a flat tire? just wondering thanks

    I'm really bad at keeping extra parts. I'm even worse at keeping extra parts with me in the truck. One of these days it will bite me in the butt but I will jump that hurdle when I come to it.

    As far as what extra parts I do carry.....well....I do have an extra key for my ztr.

    I just carry two mowers and almost two of everything else I use daily.

    lol right after i posted this, my buddy called me, saying "he just broke a belt and spindle and is going to be out for a day of mowing and wants me to cover it for him.
    i am sure most guys dont carry spindles around everywhere though

    ^ duct tape can fix any thing! the nice thing about commercial mowers, is a lot of the parts are universal... just came to me; Oil, or Wd-40 or FF would be great items to have

    On the trailer itself we keep belts, tire plugs, zip ties, air tank, all sorts of electrical connectors, blades. I even have a couple spare pulleys and a starter ever since the starter broke the gear 25 miles from home.

    Tool box on the truck has every tool you need for a mower.

    I have a socket set and one of those 4 in one screw drivers, the only thing I don't have is pliers, and they are realy good for every thing so I should probably get a pair, but I have needle nose!

    Too many too list, the whole truck box is full.
    Let me put it another way...

    I got so much in there that not only could I not list it all, but half the time I forget I even have it.
    Best to just let it build up over the years, I think.
