    I live in Houston and have a landscape company. I have searched all over for a 10-12 ft tandum axle landscape trialer and have had no luck. They all cost too much , I once found one for $1500 but now can't find any. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    have you ever though of getting anything a bit bigger mayber a 16 or 18 footer you never kno when the extra few feet may come in handy. and if you ever expand and buy more equipment you may kick yourself in the a** wishing you bought a bigger trailer. I started out wioth a 12footer and now have a 18 footer cause i bought another lazer. think about it. just a suggestion

    The best advice I can give is by the best from the start, even if its more money. If you want to pursue this career, that is the best way to get ahead. 12' is too small a trailor for the equipment needed for Spring Cleanups and its small for regular mowing.

    I'm going tomorrow to put money down to hold a 16'x6.5' tandem trailer tomorrow, it has a tool box welded to the front and a cage to hold blowers gas cans whatever small, but that is removable with 4 bolts and then it can haul a car (doubles as my race car hauler) it was only 800 so i had to get it. And i agree, go with alittle bigger if possible, this is hard to fit in my drive but oh well.

    I have a 12' cage trailer, just starting out in the business and already wish I would not have spent so much time and money
    in a short trailer, I have a encore 34 and a ferris extreme 61 and
    they lack a half an inch not fitting in the trailer! P.S. I have to put my push mower in the back of the truck.
