    I'm about to stock a new small enclosed trailer to keep my hardscaping tools in. So far all I have is a concrete saw, compactor, 7" angle grinder and a bunch of handtools. Should I buy a generator and table wet saw? What do you guys carry around?

    Table wet saw is a must, generator depending on size but i knly end up using mine a few times a year.
    Screeds, pipes, floats. String and pins. One million shovels and hammers. Snap line and a ton of red pencils. Large squares, levels and straight edges.

    Done pumping diesel so thats all for now

    So that wet table saw would be a good investment. Which brand and size?

    Sounds like you are trying to create a need for your new nifty trailer.


    Just put the tools you need in there.

    Are most of your jobs new construction or do you rip a lot of decks and concrete?

    Edco makes a good wet table saw, that's what we use.
    We have one attached in our box van - 16" blade.

    well ive been growing and I think its about time to go on a spending spree. I need to streamline the jobs so they get done faster. Im spending way to much time loading and unloading tools between my one trailer, then when i show up I almost always forget something crucial lol.
