It's for one service but you are right about getting old.

In order to haul the garden tractor with the leaf vacuum attached and to take a sweeper, I need 15 feet of trailer, min 6' wide. I have two 16 foot trailers that are 8 feet wide that is used for equipment, they are not designed for garden tractors, ZTR's etc with decks and the decks don't clear. The other issue is these trailers are heave, they go around 2,000 pounds, desperate amount of weight for nothing.

So I started looking for something different, I have a 16' Cargo which would work but I want people to see this equipment, seeing equipment has brought a ton of businesss this year from parking lots where we may be getting lunch, coffee, banking etc. Anyhow I can't find what I am looking for locally and don't have four weeks to have one built so we will do that next year.

It's basically a make it work for this season.
