    My buddy Scott just got one a few months back and he loves it. He keeps all his supplies in it instead of the tool box on his truck. Also your equiptment stays cleaner. I have a bunch of Oak trees in my yard.:usflag:

    With my open trailer I'm hurrying home every time it starts raining. Sometimes it's only a 15 minute rain and I wish I would have just stayed out there rather than come home because even though I may not be able to mow I can at least trim hedges and stuff so I don't get too far behind. With an enclosed you can stay out there in the rain without worrying about equipment getting soaked

    I've run opens for many years and all my equipment fires right up when wet.

    my equipment fires right up when wet also I was just looking. I like being able to store string and edger blades and hand tools in side the enclosed trailer. I guess I have to much spare time today.:usflag:

    We all do. I'm actually reading the political forum which usually only nauseates me.

    those scare me!! I am trying to figure out how to grow the company with out hiring guys first. :confused: I want the jobs then hire to fill them. but I can't do them all myself to save money then hire the guys. All the guys I have had were drunks, pill heads, or illegals . no matter what I pay that is what I get.:hammerhead:

    That's the kicker you have to be able to afford to grow. Waiting to hire until after you have the work rarely works. I have had great luck with temps from Labor Ready. I only use them for installs and sod though. Not many machine ready guys have come through.

    I will try that. I have a degree in landscape design but have almost given up on landscapes because I can't get good reliable help. I have reigned to all my jobs by myself. So I can't pick up to many big jobs. I guess I will eventually find good people and then grow. The growing is the easy part.
