    picking up the trailer and a Lesco 36" WB on Wednesday. Wasn't really jumping at the bit to buy a 36" but I was selling my Mustang and a guy came to look at it and we got talking and it turns out he is also a landscaper and had a 2009 7x12 trailer and a couple mowers he was looking to get rid of so we worked out a trade deal where he got the mustang (which I was asking 5 grand for) and I got the mower, trailer and $3500 so that solves 2 of my problems: I now have a trailer and that damn car is outta my garage finally!

    anyway, the trailer is in near perfect shape he bought it and never used it I guess. The mower is alright, definitely in better shape than my 48", has a Kawasaki on it, all new belts and has a bag. With the leftover money I'm gonna do a little advertising, keep an eye out for a used dump insert, finish rebuilding my ProLine 21" and put a few hundred into my 48" to get it back in good shape. I feel like I'll have a pretty solid mowing setup for this year. Pics to come once I get everything cleaned up.

    Nice can't wait to see pics. Just to give you a heads up someone on here is selling a dump insert for $1,500 i believe. They are in New England some where. Not sure how close to that you are or how much you are looking to spend but, just figured i would give you a heads up. They have a thread over in the equipment forum.

    I've had 'em all....as long as its not a dodge its ok for me! I actually do like the chevy a little better...cab seems a little bigger on the inside and the whole truck is a little lower to the ground which should make loading and unloading easier.
