    I was wondering where everyone keeps all of there equipment. I built a shed on some of my father's land. He has 20+ acres, so it comes in handy, for dumping grass and storage. Too bad I can't live there too!!

    All my equipment is kept in the garage. My main trailer is kept in the backyard and the other trailer is stored in the pasture at a friend's ranch. The garage is stuffed. I can't put anything else in it.

    We keep all of our equipment, trucks and trailers inside our 5,000 sq. ft. shop. We got the shop 3 years ago and hope we never have to move out. We worked out a deal with the landlord, we take care of all the grounds around the entire complex and another one that he owns and he give us a few hundred off the rent. It is a lot of money a month but is well worth being able to have every thing I own under a roof with a fence around it.

    We keep our equipment and trailer in a storage unit which we rent each month. The place is only a few minutes from our home, and it is very convenient to load up each morning.

    I would not want to have to keep our stuff at home. Especially having to park the trailer. I think that it would junk up the street, and i don't think the neighbors would appreciate looking at either.

    My equipment is stored in a double car garage at my crib. There are motion detectors and other anti-theft gizmos. Plus an attack Yorkie, just kidding --A.L.F.

    My gear is tucked neatly inside a 100' x 190' wharehouse. Of course, it is not full of only my stuff. I back the grass truck, with trailer still attached inside every night. I don't even have to unhich the trailer. I use my company pickup to commute to and from the shop.
