I actually drove this truck to texas to have it done. I live in VA. Long ride but well worth it. The bed cost $2200.

Truck will be outfitted with 2 quick 36, 2 shindawia trimmers 1 stick edger, 1 backpack blower, 1 handheld blower, 2 prolockers, tool box, 2 saftey cones, and water cooler. The front of the truck is getting a full wrap and signs on the back ramps. Total cost for rig including going to texas about $25000 including truck.

That is one productive setup right there! VERY nice, great deal on the bed

That sure beats towing around a trailer all of the time.... Looks great too!!

Nice profit maker there. Especially since you can have a 2 man crew (with 2 walk behinds on it).

The most efficient setup I ever had was a used F-150 6-cylinder with a full size bed that had a full width folding ramp (the type that replaces the tailgate). I had a similar equipment set up (racks and such) except that I could only hold one (1) 36" or 48" walk behind.

Your setup should be very nimble, productive, and, cost efficient. Good job.

You could also do it on a 250 long bed or get the f-150 reg cab with a long bed and 5.4 and you will have a 3k payload before the new bed.

I am cutting it close with my gvw if i have 3 guys in the truck. None of them could be heavy guys. May even have to only run half a tank of gas at a time.

THat is a real sweet set up. I really like that. I run a scag 36wb and a 48wb. Could your truck handle those two machines at the same time?

You would have to stagger them. The inside width is 83".

cool what about the weight. i was going to go with a 2500 chevy truck. I was some what worried about the height of the bed off the ground.

Looks like it will be a pretty nice wrap and lettering but what is the point of doing the roof? Put a sign on the tailgate instead.

willretire@40

B.c you can see the roof when looking at the front of the truck. Roof was only another $150. There are signs going on the back.

this is the first thing I do every morning. I deliver to hotels on the ocean front. this pic also doubles as a before pic.

signs are being put on the ramps as I type. the wrap got held up b.c it snowed on saturday so that should happen this weekend.

I am doing all this from my treo even the attachment. modern tech is so great.

Truck is getting wrapped now. I saw it earlier this morning. It looks real good. Can't wait to see it finished. Will proably get it tomorrow. Wife doesn't know that I am getting it wrapped I just told her that it is getting lettered up. See what she says when I get home with it. She knows it cost alot to get this done. Let her nag for a minute then go on with the rest of the day.
