    i finally got around to getting the pictures off my digital camera. I recently bought a 2004 Gravely 260Z w/ 25Kawi to complement my old school gravely PRO-50 - 50" 14Kawi. My weakest link at the moment is my trailer. As you can see i definitely need a larger one. I feel like such a redneck driving around like this, but for now its getting the job done.

    The truck is a '94 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with 118K on it, it pulls all my equipment just fine, its the braking that is a little like a thrill ride in emergencies. My next trailer will definitley have brakes on it!

    heres a close up of the trailer arrangement... yes, those are car ramps under the WB with it sticking 2' over the tongue.

    and i had a magnet done, orginally it was going to be cut to the shape of CT, however we changed the my company logo and went with boring old rectangle. I had coroplast job-site signs as well as t-shirts made up that all incorporate my logo.

    I like the bug shield, different than most of the trucks I see.
