    Yes, I know the front is very messy, just haven't had the time to organize and mount the last few items. I've also got prolockers for each mower, just got to get the time to mount them.

    That Chevy 2500HD is beautiful! and thats coming from a guy that drives a Ford F-350.
    Those clips holding and the hand tools look like they work well. Looking good all around.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!!

    I did pretty well last year, especially being my first year. My truck was a little undersized for the area I'm in, and I knew I would be getting a bigger trailer. I was sitting pretty in the Toyota and had some money to put down on the Chevy. My payment actually went down (only $8/month) for the new truck.

    As far as the trailer, the 5x10 was getting really small. I got a good deal on the Lesco WB during the off season, and there was no way to take both mowers with the 5x10. I sold my bassboat and used that money to buy the trailer.

    The clips holding the tools are a little light duty. I wish I had sprung for the better clips, but they'll do for now. I also use a long HD bungee to keep them in place. The best part is that it keeps everything neat and easy to grab just one tool without digging through a pile.

    I hope to get the V-nose area cleaned up and the pro-lockers mounted soon.

    Thanks again.

    How do you like your km110r? Does the edger work well? Do you like the longer reach hedge trimmer? I have the shorter length shaft one. It seems long enough for small trimming jobs.
