    Okay, here we go: 1st, I am just starting out, have a couple of 21"s, a 42" rider, and other random stuff (leaf blowers, etc..). A local guy has a used 16' trailer for sale for 1300, i bet i can get it cheaper. Is it WAY to big for me? I know it is too big, but will i have difficulties using it, or will i just be wasting space?
    2nd: A local tractor store has a used lesco 48" wb, 15hp Kawi, belt, for $1900. He says it has 2 months of use, and it still looks to be in great shape (havent heard it run yet though). Is that a good price?
    3rd: BE CAREFUL! The $#!*hole gas can i use has no vent, and its plastic, so it expands like crazy in heat, and today, when i lifted it into the back of the truck, it sprayed in my face. (luckily i seem to have some magic ability to close my eyes before getting hit with anythign ever, even rocks from my trimmer), THANK GOD. SO, just a reminder to be careful to everyone out there.

    Get safty glasses, that magic will disapear one day and you will lose an eye!!

    The lesco sound good, currently selling for $2700 at HD and $2600 at Lesco.

    The trailer sounds big now, give it a year if you do things right, you will be begging for it and more.

    Thanks ray,, the other thing about the trailer is that i sell christmas trees in the winter.. It would be good for going to get loads of trees, but the storage would be an issue. BTW, i do have safety glasses, i just forget them on a regular basis (i was borrowing a truck today, not using my own). Thanks again, mike
