This season is starting off pretty well. I sold my smaller trailer and started to install new trailer gates on the back of my trailer. Here is the progress from installation today.

First i had to cut the equipment mounts of the trailer. Then i had to figure out a bracket to mount the ramps. I was able to buy these tramps for 250.00 yesterday. Everyone else's cost of the trailer gates was right around 450-650!
I did not take the finished pictures yet but here is the progress! Let me know what you think!

Thanks man. The ramps are not connect yet. You can see the jacks under the ramps. I am trying to get them centered and aligned before i weld anything.

They look like nice heavy duty ramps. Will you be loading a skid or tractor on the trailer or just mowers?

I use a small kubota loader on some of my jobs, i also use dingos a few times a month. But 90 percent of the use will be the mowers. The trailer is awesome! The only thing i wish it had was brakes! But i think within the next year im going to try and buy a mitso fuso (pardon the spelling). For the areas around me its alot easier to take care of the properties with the minimum lenght of setup. Im goign to be purchasing a new mower within a couple weeks. Im contimplating between a ferris evo (Motorcycle seat) or the Toro grandstand.

I purchased two blower racks for the br600's I just need to weld on a base to mount them on the trailer.

I demoed the toro last week. I really liked the ride. But i still want to demo the evo out. I like the idea of being able to stand and sit. Lazy! :)

Yeah, I would make sure to demo the ferris also, from a lot of guys I've talked to that have evos love them so I would make sure to try them both out.

I think I'm going to demo it the beginning of next week! I got quoted 7600.00 out the door for a 52 inch evo from my dealer. It has a full Warranty Is that a good deal?
