    Here are a few of my new things to start new lawn service 2007.
    What do you guys think?And do you think its safe to start off with this truck pulling this trailer?The trailer is 6.5"by12" and is verry heavy duty.I will be hauling Q36 mower and two 21 inch mowers two weed trimmers, blower ,hedge trimmers,stick edger,walk behind edger, gas etc... The truck isnt much but it runs good 4.0 engine and its all I have to start.

    Nice starter set-up. I think the truck will be fine for now. We pulled our 6x12 w/ a Toro 44" and a Dixon 50" and trimmers, blowers, gas, etc. with a Jeep Cherokee w/ a 4.0 straight six, and it was fine. How do you like the Samurai? How well does it turn?

    I think you will cruise from stop to stop. Just find your sweet spot for your mower on the trailer. (Nice little trailer by the way) We need one like that.
    I say you wpuld be able to put another Q44 on there in the future.

    Nice Setup! I really like that trailer! You should be fine with the truck for now i pull my trailer with a Z on it with my bro's S-10 (well he drives cuz im not old enough yet) and its a V-6. The only thing is if you expand and get a ZTR and its commercial duty i would recommend putting brakes on the truck then. -Mitch-

    Looks like a great setup. Make sure to strap down your mower though. I've seen some bad stuff happen to loose equipment.

    You should do fine with that truck, trailer, and equipment.

    Looks great, just get some Green Touch fast straps for the Q36 mower. Just curious as to why you mounted the trimmer racks facing inside the trailer? I have the same racks but i mounted them so that they are facing outside. Thats a tough looking trailer.
