    It handled it just fine. Yeah it was pretty heavy and no, it's all stock. I love my Chevy/Gmc trucks. I've pushed this ole girl to some serious extremes. Now that i have my 2500hd I probably won't be putting much weight in the Half-ton. She's earned her keep-more than once.

    I still use it weekly (during the season). I try to use the Exmark as much as possible, i like it a little better and it's more efficient to use. But yes, I so still use the ZG222, especially if my buddy is helping me.

    I'm in the finishing stages of making a tool-box for the tongue of my trailer. I used the tool-box/cage that came with the 14ft trailer i bought this summer and I've cut it up and re-welded it. I'm happy with it. I'll post pics once it's done.

    Next project is to disassembles the 3 10cuft wheel barrows i bought and put new handles and hardware on them.

    here are a couple pics. I'm not the greatest fabricator/welder but i'm sure it will hold up. I'll post a final pic when it's done.

    Progress on the tool box. Still need to finish putting the gas shock absorber on, grind it down and paint.

    The faded trimmer i picked up yesterday for $50. New primer bulb, pull string, fuel lines and filter. Disassembled the carb and cleaned it. Adjusted the idle a bit and it run GREAT! Total of $72 spent on a great backup trimmer. I'm happy.:usflag:
