    a mini excavator? Is that transported in a open trailer or a enclosed trailer.

    Our mini excavator is used more than any other tool we have, and after I bought a bigger excavator it opened up doors to jobs we would have normally never even considered taking.
    As for the job trailer we had a 20' and it was to big so I sold it a couple years ago and now I miss having it so I might buy a 12-14' for next year. When I had the 20' I would leave it on the job if their was room. We are a small company (3 crews) and I think the trailer helped us be more productive and it made a nice billboard.

    Our trailers saved us a bunch of windshield time this week! It's a no brainer!

    Drake - no pictures? pretty certain the only enclosed trailer you own is a mobile home. Show us these great trailers!

    How come I am the only one that posted mine inside and out and don't even do hardscaping?

    cause Drake doesn't have any trailers. Drake is full of himself.

    This is the day and age of camera phones. Just ask Anthony Weiner.

    I am curious how a trailer "saves windshield time"? I guess his guys sleep in it?

    We have two cargos and they both are sitting on site now waiting for us to return to work. For all you newbies I think you can spend your money more wisely if you are limited with tools. But if you're serious about it and have a whole arsenal of tools, possibly multiple crews, they are definitely a timesaver.
