Default YARD UNIT (by) Carolina Boy Creations....

Thought you guys would get a kick out of this. Ever get tired of having to walk around the yard to grab different things to do different task. You spend half your day changing directions putting up one tool and breaking out another one. Truck won't finished in the shop, got everything put up Sunday evening from the vacation so wet back to work on the one man yard unit.......

Cub has a 25 gal weed sprayer I mounted on the back and up out the way. 12v pump and installed a simple pull switch to get it all going. Has its own pump. adjusted and bent the drive handles a little where I can drive it with one hand. Didn't bother the two hand operation. Just got them a little closer.
push mower, weed eater, ditch bank cutter don't need explaining
Pressure washer is a 2400psi mounted on the side. Added a 2gpm 12v pump to the front bottom of the 250 gal water tank and it forces water into the pressure washer. I'm sure I have close to 2800psi now............
Racing style hot and ground charging connections hooked to the back of the camper/truck on a drop down plate and also can connect it to the tractor battery if being pulled around the yard. Made sure the leads were long enough.
. OLD YELLOW,, > 445 ford, front bucket, tilt and turn back blade with teeth
has two hitches welded to the back blade. 2 5/8 and 2' for moving the boats, vette trailer and yard unit around the point.
for those that have the small trailers like in the photos setting up 12v pressure washer system is cheap. Pump, wire and fittings for the tank are all that is needed.

Had a thread about Zero turn mowers but thought you'd get a kick out of this.

Called a guy about doing the fence at the end of the drive and ask what he'd charge to do the house with it. Times must have changed and he wanted $450 dollars to do both.
Got the tank for 25, fittings and hose 60, pump off e bay for 70. muffler clamps I had, 3" angle 12 dollars, one can spray paint. 4 dollars. Saving over 200 for boat gas, ver one time at 450, now anytime..
Priceless....
Two ear connection on the tank.fitting. Don't take but a minute or two to drain so if it leaves the yard, tank is empty.Tractor weighs just a little less than the camping unit so you don't know it back there
Blast to build. Tickled I got everything on there but it fit. and its one inch after tail gate is up so no room to wiggle going down the highway. ....
