Hi guys,

 

Just wondering if anyone has got any good pictures or videos of the set ups they are running with?

 

Would be good to see.

Here we go, I built this in 98 designed for 2 215's but can fit anything. You should see my ramp idea and how it works.

Cheers

Hey Matt, the drawbar would be 500mm more than a standard setup. But when you look at my tug, I've gone 400mm longer with the tray and canopy than the standard tub. I had to fit a hitch extender otherwise backing needed much more care. Knocking it up took a few day's trial and error.

I might take a few pics of the lockable brushcutter holder on Monday. The duel mower holder is lockable and boltcutter proof too. With the cost of Honda's I'd hate to replace two at once.

I am often jackknifing mine, yours must require some careful consideration when backing up with the cage there.

It's not too bad Drew, the pic's always look worse than it is in the flesh. I seldom get into a tight area where it will be a problem. It could be that I've towed with it for so long I'm just used to it. Bloody good setup, works well with two of us going as well.

Off for another day at the office, note how easy the Toro fits with handlebars straight up. My place is behind first pic.

No, but most of the time it,s just the Husky on. But when i need to take something else no probs. Can see it coming in handy down the track.

Previous was 8x5 with a roof, had that for 15 years but it was just a frag too small

Short answer, I dont  :)  Mowers only on the trailer, all other stuff  on vehicle either in cab or on tray (10')
