    The trailer came with it, it's a Carry-On, and that's one of the reasons I bought this model. The box is a handy place for trimmer line, small gas cans, straps, 2-stroke oil, etc.

    I love my NNT. Its been great to me so far.The only place that might know something is a dealer in rhode island that I bought mine from. I can find the title with the name of the dealer if you want. Just give me a PM and I will find it for you.

    And I put 4 self tapping metal screws through the bottom of the box and into the frame. The box was great till I jackknifed it

    The toro z 355 is a good bagger/mulcher. I had the opportunity to demo a walker diesel for about a month and really liked the quality of cut/bagging but it couldn't handle the terrain. Kept getting stuck and no hill stability. The toro is a baby beast of sorts. Plenty of power, bags just as good as walker, can operate with one hand, and hill stability like a mo'fo. Awesome mulcher. Just bolt in the mulch plug take the tension of the blower pulley and your mulch'in. Scag made a very similar mower. I had my choice between a walker and a toro. Toro hands down for me.

    I have found the cut to be better than good and the suction is something you have to watch. I make sure my belt is in good shape, the bagging baffles are in and the impeller is cleaned out regularly. I have taken the impeller all the way out. Then wire wheeled and coated the housing with POR 15. I have also ground all the nicks and burs off the impeller blades. The hopper really gets packed.

    I have to stay small because I live in a townhome, but my setup still works really well for me.

    What your doing must be working with 84 accounts, but you could always rent a shop/garage or rent a large storage unit.

    I live 2 mins from Tool shed and they sell a ton of them. He cant keep them in stock. He offers a full 1 year warrenty on everything. I bought a 6.5x12 2 years ago with the mesh high sides and only paid $900. Over the winter he has awesome deals. I think they are made in the carlisle area.
