    Thats the exact trimmer i'm looking into buying. All I have right now is a craftsman that has a non feeding head...talking about being unproductive with that thing let me tell ya. It also vibrates so bad after 15 mins of use my hands are shaking.

    What kind of walk behind is that, its a pretty nice mower. I'm considering getting one of those eventually, a smaller one that would take the place of my push mower for the most part.
    The difference between a commercial trimmer and a homeowner model is night and day.
    I've been pleased with the FS90R. The ability to add attachments is a plus.

    Here's the tread I started when my homeowner trimmer crapped out on me.
    There's also info/pics of the two attachments I purchased for it...

    The walk behind is a Ferris 36" (dual hydro) Comfort Control DD. (as opposed to the single hydro model called a "Hydrocut")
    Here's a thread on that as well:

      Yeah we have a commercial echo trimmer at my parents business and I love that things. It so light, no vibrations and it has all the power needed, thought about stealing it. :P I'll use my crappy craftsman for the rest of the season.

        Theres my new layout wth my rack. Moved the mower forward the whole way, and now t seems lke have so much space on my traler.


        BTW, one of my keys doesn't work on ths keyboard, can you guess whch one.
        You may want to keep the zero turn to the back of the trailer keep the weight over the axle ,I used to keep my mower up front.. It was harder to stop cause the weight and gave me a tiny bit of sway when there was some wind.. But that's just me how's it working out for you.

          Well, when I had it over the axle, I had so much trailer bounce and there was barley any weight on the hitch and it would cause the trailer to bounce up and down, I could feel it. I moved it forwards and it solved that problem entirely. Now its smooth sailing.

          Its not a commercial mower, it only weights roughly 500 pounds.

          I currently have it a far enough back to where my push mower sits sideways in front of it, and I think I have found a good balance, there is enough weight on the hitch, but not too much.

              Thanks man, I think I found the perfect balance the way i have it set up now, it tows great and there isn't very much weight on my hitch, I can still pick the trailer up off the hitch and roll it around

                I have one question about your set up. I noticed the trimmer racks are on the drivers side of the trailer. Would it be more efficient to reverse the layout and have the trimmer racks, trimmr, and gas cans along the passenger/curb side?

                Just curious>>

                  I have never had to park along a curb, all the places I service I usually just back in the driveway.

                  I guess it would be smart to have it curb side if you were parking a long a curb a lot, but then again, in places like housing developments and such you could probably just pull in the other way so your driver side is to the curb.

                  I guess it is all on how you usually park your truck and trailer, I now a guy that parks his stuffy across the street in a little pull off, if his was on the passenger side, he would have to go the whole way around the trailer to get it.

                  I think it is just all personal preference, if your doing a lot of curb parking a long pretty busy streets, then I would say you probably should have it passenger side.
