i have grown from 5 accounts to 36 accounts, so far in this current season, my last 6 accounts force me to upgrade equipment 1/2 to 2 acre lots, so i decide to go for a riding mower, i always buy my equipment cash. so after buying a extra new edger, and mower and riding mower i just don't want to , rush to buy any trailer, i want an enclose that will suit better for me and advertise in huge letters show off basically,i been looking around here and sit and the idea of buying a cargo hitch, but that scare me here its like people has courtesy when it comes to driving but not a lot skills if u know what i mean, so i decide to design this bed extender so i can take my 21 inches with me i am not thinking of unloading the rider an every house just where i have more than 3 or 4 houses 1/4 in a raw, i just think this bed extender i did its kwolll
