    Here are the pictures of our rig. We run a 2005 Ram 1500 2wd with a 4.7 V8. Our trailer is a 12x6 Carry-On with racks that we bought or we built. Our main mowers are a 2000 Toro Proline 44" Hydro and a 1998 Dixon 4515B with a 50" deck. We also have a new Craftsman 3 in 1 for boulevards and small areas. We run a new Shindiawa trimmer, an older Echo trimmer and backpack blower, and a Ryobi trimmer. We also have a John Deere edger. Let the comments fly!

    Here's a front view of the trailer- I made the cooler and hand tool rack myself.

    Nice Setup!! Got A Few questions. First how do you like ur trailer? Next year im going to need a bigger one now that i have a 52in Z and a 54in WB and all the other stuff, my 5x10 just isnt cutting it and i was at TSC earlier and really liked the 7x12 w/rear and side gate. Next how do you like the Toro WB with the T-Bar? I just bought a JD 54in WB with the pistol grips and love the machine to death but down the road am looking to get a Toro 48in T-Bar and just wondering how they handle. Thanks and great looking rig! -Mitch-

    Mitch- The trailer is very nice, heavy duty. But the ramps are sort of high and I have problems with loading my mowers sometimes when the deck catches. I am having a friend move the hinges down for me this winter and hopefully it will help. That trailer with a drop axle would be perfect. The Toro T-Bar is in my opinion the best walk-behind controls out there, I just could not use pistol grips, it was too hard on the hands. Toro makes a very good walk-behind mower-by the way did you get your license yet? I get mine in April. I would have to say we are lucky to have dads that help us out until we get our businesses going.
