    I got the same mower. Good machine. I barely use the thing though. I bet you put more hours on yours in the first month than I have in the past 2 years.

    If your trying to keep the paint looking sharp on it, you might not want to have the front caster arms rubbing against the trailer. You will wear off the paint in no time with it bouncing down the road. Happy mowing.

    Yeah I was worried about the rubbing up against the trailer. Shouls I put padding against it or just not push the mower up so far. I cant wait to see how it mows. I am shure it will be great.

    The trailer is a 6x12, I like it so far, it just creates alot of drag on my truck. Thanks for the comments I appreciate them alot:usflag:
