Alright so my trailer finally arrived, seriously not what I had expected.

It was free, got it through a family member.

It looks like a damn boat, it's huge!

I think with a little bit of breeze blue paint this thing will be rockin!!

Not bad for the price. Just make it into what you want. This is a good way for you to not have to worry about folks taking your equipt.
At first glance I seen hope for this trailer. Here is a quick thought.......
Put a topper over the back half and a vented cover over the v neck part, cut and hinge a door on the front side. for gas cans and such for storage

It would make me a good pinestraw or cleanup trailer.

Little bit of TLC and some new rubber and I think you got yourself a damn nice cleanup trailer there buddy.

Be great for hauling debris, pinestraw, mulch, soil and such. loving the double axles too, leaf springs and all in good shape?

Put up some pics when you get her remodeled to your liking

Everything is in good condition, I can't wait to organize it & have a place to hang the trimmers.

It's like a parade float.

I start working on it tomorrow! BOOYAH!!!

As I was getting ready to start this morning on the 5 jobs I had promised. The phone rang. It was the state police telling me tht they recovered my stolen trailer. I told them I didn't know it was missing and went out to check. Sure enough it was missing.

two kids (i'm 60 so anyone under 30 is a kid to me) 21 and 22 took my trailer and stole an ATV with it. Now my trailer was in in police custody. Can't get it back until the judge says I can. Probably Friday after the arranment.

I borrowed a trailer from a friend so I could get to work. Drove about 1 mile and had a flat. No problem, I had a spare. Changet it and started again. Made it about 2 miles about 2 miles and another tire blew. I wondered about the other 2 tires. Called my friend and was told that he hadn't used it for about 2 years.

I started at 8 and it was now 12 and I again was starting to go to the first job. Got there without incident. Five minutes later it started pouring. To make a long story short, I didn't accomplish jack xxxx today.

At least the other crew completed 4 out of 5 of their jobs, and I am all loaded up for tomorrow with all 4 tires stil inflated.

Crap!

I'll be damned if my trailer starts to fall apart. That would suck!

I hope you get yours back soon, I don't understand those situations, do they reaalllly need to hold onto YOUR trailer. You'd think a photo would be enough for them to hold onto.

I hope justice is served in your situation my friend, without harming your business!

I am planning on adding another truck and now I know where to get a decent trailer with 2 new tires. He's asking $800.00 but I'll bet I can get it for $500.00. It'll be June before I add a third crew.

I have so much to do, it will be Friday before I have time to pock up my trailer anyway. Both of the boys are now 3 time loosers and they were armed when arrested. They will get theirs and I will get my trailer back. I'm just glad it was empty. The borrowed one is enclosed.

Scott,

That trailer is awesome. You should get some really bright florescent paint and paint it. Then with big letter put your name & number across it.

Everyone would be talking about you.

hahaha! I'll be up all night again waiting to paint it... it's driving me crazy.

I feel like I just won the lottery!:D

The company I used to work for is going to FLIP when they see it... lmao


they have awesome trailers too... one is enclosed and the other is WOW

It has a massive hydrolic dumper with 2 side ramps where you can fit a walker & a regular mower... the thing is beautiful.... BUT they have no ad space, only on the enclosed trailer, which is beautiful too.

I'm working my way up! I can't wait to see how many calls i get from advertising on the trailer!

Steve, now THIS is what makes you the best! Always thinking and will always take the time to help someone out with great ideas! Man, I missed this site. Its been slow in FL. Long drought but just started raining. Actually, it rained for the first time in 3 or 4 months last week and its rained everyday since. Thats how it works down here. Time to get all those new accounts when everyone realizes that their mowers won't start. (I've spent all winter cutting the sparkplug wires on everyones push-mowers) :cool:
