    Here's my rig:

    '96 Ram 2500 Cummins (NOT STOCK!) LOL... aka "The Money Pit"..... I have waay too much money into this truck but its work/personal truck... I had to get it lettered to remind myself it is still a business truck LOL... I actually had stacks and 40" Super Swamper Iroks on it, but took those off and got it lettered, i'm trying to focus a little more on company image :hammerhead:
    Its dirty in the pics, I cleaned it right after of course lol...

    The trailer is nothin fancy, a 6.5'x12' with a trimmer rack and gate spring. Blowers, gas cans, trash bags, stuff like that usually goes in the truck bed I think it looks a little cleaner and helps justify having a bed on the truck, and plus it saves money having to buy racks, then my tailgate is at the perfect height to fuel, start and strap on a backpack blower, I've had racks for them before but the guys keep putting them on the tailgate to fuel up, start and strap on anyway so i figure just leave them in the truck bed. works for me (just a little more trouble to unload instead of simply unhooking from the trailer).

    The Exmark is a 2005 Lazer Z 60" 27hp air cooled Kohler, with the striping roller, suspension seat (Custom Ride conversion kit), and a homemade OCDC (built it before they offered one through eXmark and woulda built it anyway to save the money). I have the Ultra-Vac QDS for this and LOVE that unit to death!!!! by far the best collection system i've used hands down. Not the biggest, but the best quality, fit, finish, and gets the best results and very good effeciency and maneuverability. I'm sure there is a better machine for dedicated bagging purposes but this is for seasonal leaf removal only and its sweet for that or occasional grass collection.

    2 cycle equipment onboard:
    Stihl KM110 4 mix split boom Kombi-Unit power head with straight shaft trimmer, straight shaft edger, and cultivator attachments
    Shindaiwa trimmer
    Stihl BR550 4 mix backpack blower
    Echo PB650 backpack blower
    Echo PB4600 backpack blower

    Stihl safety glasses and my worktunes!!! I Won't work without either of those two things!

    Ok well I had a few people telling me that it probably would be better for company image to keep it closer to stock... yea the stacks are off now. It still has the lift on it so I can run any tires up to 40", I still have those Iroks I may put them back on but right now I have to put yet another transmission in it :hammerhead:
