    Are the thumbs adjustable on the end of the rack where the trimmer head goes they look like their welded in place?

    Nice set up, reminds me of when I started.
    If theres one word of advice I can give you, its THINK BIG!
    Dream big, think big and dont let anyone steal your dreams, dont let anyone tell you to stay small, dont let the system bring you down and always remember where you came from.
    Doing this for a living is a priviledge and dont let anyway tell you different.
    Good luck and may you have Gos blessings

    Nice setup man. How do you like the carry on trailer and Toro so far?

    Everything is welded in place. The only thing that i don't like about it, which isn't a big deal, it's that you can't get a trimmer off below one. For example you have to get the top one off before the second one. Other than that i love it. We had to use spacers when mounting at the top because the fancy tube that holds the electrical wire got in the way. We also had to lift if because the sides were higher than the holes on the trimmer rack.

    Love the trailer for sure! It's built very well, and has nice big tires on it. Love the Toro as well just sometimes i wish it was a hydro. The thing that bugs me is that occasionally the drive belt will pop off the spindles in gear 5, and it takes 10 seconds to get it back, but sometimes i will have to do it multiple times a day. Guy i bought it from says it does it, and he doesn't know why.

    Here are the fire plans for the setup.

    -Get some way to secure gas cans outside of tool box
    -Get a bigger mower towards the end of this season
    -Get a 2 Wheel Sulky
    -Get my own backpack blower and a blower rack

    So far that's all I need to get a complete setup. Also a full size truck of my own since all I have is that s10 you see in the background.

    Lookin good, when you get your blower you should get a br600. They seem to be the most popular around
