Just started the biz June 3rd of this year. I love it. Shoulda dunit sooner! I am an X corporate white collar junkie that got tired of being subjected to another's stupidity. Bought the trailer used from a kid that used it to move....once. Bought the Metro HP from a guy in Savannah that 'thought' he wanted to do it but couldn't stand the heat. Less than 200 hours and paid 1100.00. All the sticks are Tanaka brand equipment and I am happy with them (9 regular service accounts of which 4 are on annual contract). I am really big on contracts. Good for customers that want their yards to look good year round.......good for me$. Mounting the two stroke stuff was a dilemma. I wanted it up high enough to allow for a Z when I grow up but not so high as to fatique me a lot when it's late in the afternoon after a long day. There are no straps on any of the pieces except the top of the blower. By the way the mount in front of the blower is for a cooler. For the trimmer and the edger all you do is grab, twist, and lift it out. I made the mounts that way specifically so I didn't have to 'release' anything to get them out quick. There's an Exmark grass catcher and attachement in the trailer but I never use it. The mower had the mulching kit on it when I got it and I like it. I think it may be slowing me down a little though. I might be able to go faster if I discharge. Whaddayathink? Suggestions are welcome.....and 'beerzabein' served! Wooooohoooooooo!
