    I just wanted to share my set up for 2019. I got a lot of ideas off this site, and thought this might help others. The trailer is an ATC Raven, 8.5' x 16 (plus 2' nose) x 7' tall. All of the shelving is homemade out of wood. It's what I can work with best. Everything over $200 has a lock. All keyed the same. I carry enough gas for the week. I carry 2 of almost everything. I work solo and run all Ferris walk behinds - 61", 52", 48" and a 32". 20190327_192024.jpg 20190327_192044 copy.jpg 20190327_192120 copy.jpg 20190327_192127 copy.jpg 20190327_192133 copy.jpg 20190327_192138 copy.jpg

    That's fantastic! Really nice work! Did you build the shelving yourself?

    About 50/50 between my Dad ( a retired carpenter) and myself ( the son of a retired carpenter with lots of hand-me-down tools).

    I’m wondering about the 30 gallons of gas
    Seems like a lot
    Those race cans run about $50 each no?
    That’s $300 in 5 gallon cans.
    Are you solo?
    Or do you find cans come up missing?

    I have one of those... it’s pink.
    Everyone says “well no one will ever steal that! It’s pink!”

    I got the VP race cans at Amazon, or maybe ebay. Got a 4 pack for under $100. Bought 2 more around $30 each.
    Last year I had 5 mix n match 5 gallon gas cans and consistently used up all 5. I just wanted all new and all the same. Hopefully they don't go missing!
    Yeah, I'm solo. Mow around 65 accounts per week.
