Default Finally got an enclosed trailer

I have been wanting an enclosed trailer for awhile now, especially with all the rain we have had this year. It is only a 6 x 12 but it will do for now, especially since I only paid $1300 for it (bought it from one of my clients).

I also have a 7 by 16 open and a 6.5 by 14 open....I will most likely sell the 6.5 by 14 but keep the bigger one bc it has tall sides and is ideal for debris and will hold 12 yards of mulch.

I still have some racks to hang and configuring to do....everyday, while using it...I think of ways to improve it and make it more effective. It is really nice to be able to keep all my tools and all extras with me, without them getting all wet.

I just finished my second year in business and have the following:

2 Encore Xtreme 48 inch zero turn mowers with mulcher
1 30 inch Poulan Pro zero turn (for small gates)
1 36 inch ExMark walk behind with bagger

3 stihl weed eaters
2 stihl edgers
2 stihl backpack blowers
2 stihl hedgers (one cultivating)
1 small hedger for bushes, poulan pro
poulan pro bar saw
1 stihl and 1 Husquvarna chain saw

6 x 12 enclosed trailer
7 x 14 Big Tex open trailer with tall sides
6.5 x 12 open trailer with weed eater rack and box

1 Little Wonder Vacuum...

2011 Toyota Tacoma
1999 Chevrolet Silverado

....other various equipment

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Thank You....The shelves were there when I bought it and over the next couple of months, I will find more ways to reconfigure... I love the shelves for storage and I have enough room for width... but I will come up with more ways to improve and make those changes during the off season.

I will buy something bigger but I could sell it tomorrow and profit 500-700 easily so I couldn't turn it down. It isn't big enough to hold two of the big zero turns...but it holds everything I need for the residential yards... I have over 130 clients now and will be starting a full-time second crew next year.

One of my guys has been with me for 2 years and he will run the other one....just tired of working 14 hours a day 7 days a week, minus some rain days like today but going to go out and do some hedging.

That is a real nice set up. As you reflect on your equipment set up now, will you be doing any tweaking of it into next year?

Has there been certain equipment you liked and others you didn't that you want to replace?

Wow. Good price considering that it came with the anti-gravity option!

haha thanks Hedge

Steve...I have been having issues with the 30 inch puolan pro zero turn but it does what I need it to do... get through small gates....

Stihl backpack blower....pay the extra money for the 600, more powerful and pays for itself.

I have Encore Xtremes because I just happened to come into a good deal...I will not buy used equipment again. I am actually thinking about getting a 60 inch Bad Boy next year....I borrowed a buddies and loved it.
