    You are BACKING gear drive walk behinds on a trailer? WOW, or is it more like PULLING them on? Ah to be young again.

    lawnman_scott- Yes, customers must sign a contract. Age doesn't matter in NYS. If someone signs a contract, they are still bound to its terms, regardless of age.

    Heron Cove- I think you are referring to my picture with the two walk behinds behind the Ranger?? I love "pulling" them onto the trailer. I've found it helps to balance the weight better when they are loaded backwards..

    Hey, that grass looks pretty green and healthy. Furthermore, it looks like a nice, dry, warm day. Boy, I wish I could enjoy a day like that in front of my computer, sippin' a cool Coke in the comfort of my homes A/C:rolleyes:

    For some reason, whenever I look out my window at home its either dark or raining.........:D
