    Here are some pictures of my setup for 2008.

    New equipment for this year is the Redmax edger, Toro OCDC, and the toolbox in the front. I plan on adding a Toro walk behind soon.

    I also took some pictures of my first cut of the year. Feel free to comment.







    Some Stripes:

    What size motor is that?

    Also, did you buy that roller from Harrison Specialty off Ebay? If so, how do you like it?

    Where did you buy the powered OCDC?

    Sorry for all the questions, but these are things for my want list this year.

    Very nice setup indeed. I am looking for a Toro walk behind too, but need a larger trailer first.

    The Motor is a 23 hp Kawasaki. It has plenty of power, I have never had a problem with it.

    I bought the the Striping Roller from Harrison Specialties last season. It was a very good investment. It adds great definition to your stripes, and makes them stick on yards for weeks.

    Here are some pictures of my lawns with the striping kit:




    Had a little too much free time::rolleyes:


    Here is my lawn cut without the roller:


    The OCDC is made by Toro. I bought it from my dealer. It is powered from a cable. You can adjust it from fully open, to half way open, and of course closed. I used it yesterday and i was very impressed. When closed, your clippings aren't going anywhere.

    The only negative with this particular Toro model, is your discharge chute has to be down to utilize the flap. Otherwise, it works great.

    It's funny you mention you might need a bigger trailer. With a walk behind on my trailer, I will have about 5" to spare. It's going to be a tight fit.

    I am going to look into larger trailers at some point when I get some free time. Probably something in the 12 foot range.

    Thanks for all the comments! If you have anymore questions just keep them coming. I hope you all have a great season.
