    Yes it is the 13 hp Honda. You're right about it being a little heavy on hills. I think they have a self propelled unit now (they always come out with something better after I buy something). I was kicking around buying the cart you attach to the zero turn so you can drive it around out front of my mower. I have a few yards where I think it would be beneficial. I think I will hold off on buying more equipment until I go back to full time with it.

    Your "part time" setup is nicer than me "full time" setup haha very nice stuff!

    Yeah I'm getting that way too. I can't even keep both trailers at my house anymore I have to leave one at my buddies place.

    Here's the dump trailer I use for my spring / fall cleanups. It's a 6 X 10. My father in law and I built a plate to mount my Billy Goat Leaf Vac on the tongue. I didn't want the unit going up when dumping. So far it's worked out great.

    Looks like a massive leaf sucking machine.

    It's really not. I think it's only an 11hp or 16hp machine. It gets the job done, but I really think I would classify this as an entry level leaf vacuum. There are definetly much more powerful machines on the market. It does a great job chopping the leaves up and it fits quite a pile of leaves in there. I had to build this setup because one the accounts I maintained a few years ago was for a nearby lake community that I had to clean-up 2.5 miles of roadside leaves. Barrels / rakes and blowers just weren't cutting it!

    Decided my goal for this year is to start carrying around a camera. I need to redo my website since I haven't done anything with it since 2007. Glad to finally be out mowing again...didn't think the grass was ever going to start growing this year. Also a pic of my new shirts.
