Like any other business your hope is to expand and upgrade to bigger and better things. Oftentimes you hope not to have to do that as a result of something unexpected. Well we had a fender bender on our work trailer that resulted in it being totaled about a couple of weeks ago when we had just upgraded our gutter machine to a 5/6" combo to better serve our customer's needs. Needless to say we were a bit taken aback by this apparent setback since our new gutter machine was out of commission.  However, it did turn out to be a blessing in disguise for many reasons.  First we found out that our current trailer was at max capacity for the weight we were carrying with our previous gutter machine.  The new gutter machine was even heavier! Our buddies down at Magnum Trailers told us we needed to upgrade to a tandem axle trailer in order to safely and securely hold the weight we now had to carry.  Plus Josh and our employee were working in tight quarters with the small 6x12 trailer we had.  After dealing with the individual's insurance company we were able to purchase our new trailer for our new gutter machine.  Come check out the pictures of our new gutter machine and trailer!
