    10% of my customer base is within two blocks of my home.

    The customer base within 2 blocks of my home goes something like this...


    "Thirty dollars? Is that every WEEK???!!!"

    Yep. Safety check in bakerstown on Thursday. I avoided it but my friend was not so lucky.

    What do you mean by load in the truck? Blowers, trimmers, gas cans, etc... or mowers?

    I rolled through the DOT weigh station down on 79 between Bridegeville and Cannonsburg with no problems. Just make sure everything's good and you shouldn't have a problem. If they see they won't make any money off you, then they won't give you any trouble.

    Another good reason to remain solo and small - they don't even LOOK at you unless you have two axles on your trailer.

    I strap everything down anyway, so...

    Many cant operate, even solo, with a single axle trailer. While I strap mowers down, I certainly don't strap down misc. stuff which is why I'm interested in what is meant by load in the truck.

    It's a bit ridiculous if you ask me, I'm all about safety but man... I see overloaded trucks every. Single. Day. And by overloaded I mean like a 1/2 ton with 4 ton of dirt in it. Stupid, if they see severely unsafe trucks/trailers they should be stopped and fined. I do everything I can to stay safe and follow the regulations but of course I'm going to be the one dishing my money out for stupid crap.
