    This is the ultimate landscape trailer. It has everything that a cutting crew needs. This is the 5th one we built. I have the trailer built flat and we later do the rest of the welding ourselves. 20130425_121608.jpg

    very nice fleet & business you have built.

    Few questions;

    - why the opens? Is it due to encloseds falling apart on you? ...that is why I went back to open.
    - why the belt drive gravely walk behinds? i would think hydros would give you much greater efficientcy?
    - what % would you say is the split between commercial / residential?
    - how many salesmen/women do you have on staff?

    1- I do have 2 enclosed trailers. One for the pruning crew and the other for the Lawn Care. I don't find them to be efficient at all, when it comes to the cutting crew. I can fit much more equipment and tools in an open trailer and don't have to walk all over the mowers to get to them.

    2- I don't own a single Gravely, those are all Encore hydo walk behinds. I agree with you on the belt drives.

    3- 95/5

    4- None. I am the owner/manager/salesman/mechanic/babysitter. :laugh:

    great fleet and building, could be one of the top fleets on lawn site. What do you tow those trailers with, chevy 3500? They seem heavy.
