    2002 F-250 P/S, 373 gears, I also have air bag helpers, but in the pic only have 6 psi in them, will put about 10-20 lbs in when loaded down. Now for the big part. $6600.00 with everything. I have a circle drive which is a little on the tight side, but made it with room to spare, not much tighter than it takes my 20' trailer. I'm going to be figuring out the lettering soon, not only for the lawn business, but for the snowmobile race team also. There's alot of options on the trailer, and its really built solid. Thanks

    What kind of trailer did you have before this one? Is it for sale? I might be interested it it's not all lettered up and such. By the way, very nice set-up.

    I had open trailers, still have them, have a 6.5x12, and a 83"x20', but will keep them, I'll use the 20' for my kubota and its stuff.

    I like it Bernie...I talked to that insurance guy and he is going to get back to me today. Thanks for the info. If you ever want to sell that 12' trailer, get ahold of me.

    I'll probably keep the trailer, but make a heck of a deal on the leaf-loader :) . I just got done putting the primer on the walls, sleeting and raining here bad, got to keep busy. I'll paint it tomorrow, hopefully be getting my trimmer racks soon. As far as the floor, I'm going to let it cure out for a bit, and then put Thompson's on or equivelent on.

    Oh ya on the 12' trailer, I'm in the process of putting a 50" side ramp on it.

    Wriken, great looking trailer there! Best of luck with it.

    BTW, not to get too off topic, but why are you selling your leaf loader? I ask because you're the second person in the last month or so that seemed eager to get rid of thiers. Was it just the particular model you don't like, or the whole leaf loader idea just wasn't for you?

    the whole leaf loader idea just wasn't for you?

    That pretty much tells it all, I've scaled back my operation somewhat. I have a collection system on my ztr and can dump leaves in my open trailer, I dropped about 40 clients this year, had plans and did have a box for my old f-150, to place a add and go around and suck their leaves up if they had them in a pile. Still might do it but on a smaller scale, but at this time I'm deciding what to do, keep it or place a add. I guess if someone offered me a good price that would help make up my mind.

    Thanks I'll tell you what, empty it weighs about 3900lbs, but it sure don't pull like its that heavy, can't wait to get it lettered. I'm still pondering whether to get a price on a spray bedliner for it. Will put thompsons on it for sure.
