    Great stuff. How does keeping the blowers in the truck work? Would it not be faster if they were on a rack next to the trimmers?

    nice set up.

    How well do you like your 36" stander? Im thinking about getting a 36" something (walkbehind or stander)

    I like the set up. Looks heavy duty and enclosed.

    Nice rig. How long is that trailer? I like the dovetail trailer so the mower deck doesn't scrape on the ramp.

    I like it, I'm not to fond of the trailer ramps on the sides, but they sure come in handy not having to unoaf everything just to get to that on in the front. Other than that it loooks good to me.

    yep, ok i will try to answer as many as i can here. it is a 22ft trailer manufacturer is starlite i think, but i cant remember at all. i painted it this winter and that info is no more except on file somewhere.this length is needed for when i carry three kubota's. other than that it is a bit long but extra room is good. i can get a tractorwith aerator, verticutters and hand aerator plus seed an fert and spreader all on that trailer in the fall!!

    we have a 36" stander and walkbehind. we like them both, but the front of the velke walk is light so even after the weight bar on the front it still pops up easily. they cut nice and are relialbe.

    the blowers are great in the back, they fit nice and neat, easy to get to and if you look closely there is alot of racks on the side of the trailer already, more would make it difficult when all have something in them at one time. this box also has the place for my trimmerwhich stays in my truck, the workers all have their own assigned trimmers and they rotate with them to the dif crews and they are on the racks. the box also has two full length drawers that hold all hand tools for in the field fixins, small hand pruners, oil, etcetcetc. very handy and organized out of the weather. it is not hard to get to the blowers this way at all. oh, and i front of the blower goes the in truck shovels
