    What things (tools and accessories) would you add to a trailer for a regular mowing route besides the obvious:

    Z turn
    Walk Behind
    2 String Trimmers
    Backpack Blower (s)

    Hydraulic jack and jack stands?

    i'd also take a wrench for opening hydro pumps on your mower for "sticky situations" and a small air tank in case of flats. oh yea... a couple of ratchet straps too....

    Extra trimmer spool/trimmer line. Spare belts, especially deck belts and grass catcher/blower belts. Tow strap and extra ratchet straps, always come in handy. 6 pack of 2 stroke oil. Basic tool kit that will take care of most field repairs.

    Lets see... in the tool box I have spare edger blades, trimmer line, edger blade wrench, scissors, duct tape, extra safety glasses, 2 cycle oil, ratchet straps and tarp straps, and a couple screwdrivers. I am this year going to add a small set of wrenches and sockets, a hydraulic jack and maybe some jack stands. Also probably would want to have a couple extra mower blades in case one gets boogered up.

    Water cooler. Rain gear. A prayer and hope.

    haha the 6" stack of napkins for the emergency duece is crucial, especially after a rough weekend or a #2 breakfast meal from Mcdonalds. Something about bouncing around on a mower that can make your stomache go :nono:. I've had many days turn sour after having to make due with leaves and pine cones.
