    at least you are thinking with ingenuity in your other ideas like reusing that sign for sides and uying used scrap metal. Thats the way to make it in the business.

    Here are some photos of my cage. It is pretty much done. I just want to add trimmer line to it. I know this is small but for now it is all I need to take care of the size lawns I mow. I hope make my business larger in a couple of years.

    Thank you, I was afraid after some of the comments that some guys made about using to heavy of material that it would be to much weight to add to the end of my F-150 without some thing to stabilize it. so I finally said what the heck and mounted it on. Turns out it hardly phased it and pulls nice and smooth. I am real happy with how it turned out. now the only cables I will need to lock equipment with is for the mowers. Working SOLO I need to be as care-full in securing things while making access as easy as possible. Again thanks, David

    The trailer turned out great David!! I really like the front box the you made. That would be a nice extra storage box for a bigger trailer. Good luck this year!!

    I really have not had time to take pictures of all my equipment until now. I will try to start a picture thread for my-self. But it might take me some time. Now that the season is done my wife just handed me a honey-dew list. I will be winterizing everything in the next week my be that will be a good time to take them. Thanks for the compliment on the trailer. It really does serve the purpose, David
