    We are looking at pickup up a number schools and are looking at adding a Toro 300D to our fleet. My plan was to have a crew of 5, 3 mower and 2 trimmers.

    (1) Toro 300D
    (1 or 2) Toro 60" WB
    (1) Toro 36" WB

    Interested in some ideas on transporting this equipment around.

    First you'll have to pull all that weight and haul the crew around.
    Then you'll need something to put all that equipment on.

    Exactly. I would probably get a 22ft deck over/dovetail with heavy tandum axles (No tri-axle)

    A 3500 or f-350 will be find, but im sure someone will read this and say you need an f-550 or 650.

    wow. Hope you have some coin for that list. Most guys cant make enough on schools to bother much less go at it with 100k+ equipment.

    get you a gooseneck trailer...i have 2 of them and they are the best investment you can make...they pull better than a bumper pull especially if you are going to pull that equipment around everyday...its definetly worth the investment
