    Got my new Tiger Cub today, along with a new 6.5x16 tandem trailer. Still have to work on the trailer setup, but this will get my by for this week anyway. Here's a few pics I snapped this evening.

    Thanks! Too bad they don't stay that clean for long. It will see plenty of action beginning tomorrow morning. Truck is a '99 F250 v10 with a Truckcraft dump insert. :waving:

    How much do the truckcraft inserts go for? Thinking about getting one myself heard truckcraft was one of the better brands.

    Steel prices have not been kind to the dump inserts. I paid about $2800 (including cab protector, rollup tarp, and installation) last fall, but the time savings are worth every penny. You can see a few pics at http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=89833&highlight=truckcraft

    Currently cutting 35/week. Trying to get that number to 40-45.

    What brand is your trailer? Where did you get it? I live in Jackson Michigan and I'm looking for a longer trailer and wondered if you got your trailer somewhere near me. Thanks.

    I bought the trailer at Exit 99 Sales. They manufacture their own trailers, and seem to do a nice job with them. Located off I77 at the Fohl Rd. exit (exit 99, go figure :rolleyes: ) just south of Canton.
