    Finally I've got this sucker almost done. All I need now is a 32 or a 36 to replace a 22 and get another trimmer and I'll be pretty set. Other than that, I really need to wash out my truck bed. :laugh:

    I havent decided what WB to go with yet. Quick was on my mind but I think I'll demo some stuff before I make that decision.





    I've got a video of it all uploading to Sean now for when he gets the video section going (if he hasnt already). For those that want to know how it was secured to the bed, its simple but the video shows it close up.

    You can supposedly fit 2 quick 36's in the back of a standard box :). what do you use as a ramp? I think that would be really nice for small lots.

    Nice setup,keeping it simple with properly priced small lots can make you some nice money with minimal headaches.

    I had heard that too and that was the reason I was leaning towards quicks. I dont mow anything over 16,000 square feet. And even so, my largest current lot is 13,000 square feet.

    As far as the ramp goes, I wont need that until I get a bigger mower. Right now I just lift the suckers out of the back of the truck. I'll probably go with the tailgater ramp though.

    I live in Galveston, but serve Houston (Inner Loop and Northwest area) you can see my service area on my website www.mowhouston.com.

    Anyone in the Houston area that wants to network, feel free to PM me or give me a call. I often times get stuff that is out of my area and can have stuff to pass on. Just got one today out of Richmond, no way :D

    If you have a website, I will link to you so that customers out of my service area can find you.
