    I drive around town every day and notice something odd. ( at least from this point of view).

    Why do I see LCOs carrying their trailer around town completely full with all the equipment they own. To me this is a great time to unload that ZTR or walkbehind and loose some of that load for fuel conservation pruposes.

    Unless you're mowing in the winter ( Bermuda is dormant here) why carry all your equipment around town day in and day out?

    Just an observation and curious; not critizing...

    They might have fall clean ups to fininish, and most companies around here use a ZTR for fall cleanups so..........

    Well that answers early winter questions and the need to either mulch or bag leaves. I didn't think about that.

    But the rest of the year?

    You could leave that thing at home for at least 3 months without having to carry it around town all day.

    Maybe they have self-esteem issues and by carrying their equipment around it gives them a warm, fuzzy feeling...

    Advertising..........IT got your attention and Im sure others saw it also. When spring comes they might remember the name on the trailer.
