    Me too :)

    I dunno yet probably a z-mower and a walkbehind on each trailer, maybe 2 walkbehinds on the smaller 14 foot trailer.

    Yea i was surprised how clean it looked too after 3 years of being used for storage lol

    A single axle 14 foot eh? Nice! 6 or 6.5 ft wide?

    That'll be good for a crew, less hassle of a bigger trailer. Try not to overload it though, single axles are death for wobbling around, I hate my 6x12 after using a tandem.

    Yea this is the trailer i started off with a few years ago. I have no idea how wide it is, my 60 inch z-mower fits on with just a few inches to spare so its not super wide. The most it will have is a z-mower and a walkhehind on it.

    Here it was loaded up 4 years ago with my z mower when it was new and my old 48 inch walkbehind.

    Lol yea i actually just bought out another company and have been getting calls daily for new work, So far we have picked up like 30 more residential mowing accounts this year. And usually pick up 20 or so more as spring time comes closer. so we will see. Im hoping for 40-45 new accounts this year.
