View Full Version : flatbed truck?

08-13-2007, 04:01 AM
i see these guys around town using a certain type of truck.. and i want to know what it is, or at least what the type of bed is called and who makes trucks with it, or something like it. i dont know what its called so i cant look for any for sale

its a flatbed that slopes down in the back, and then there is a little ramp that folds down too. the bed has sides, but they are more like the sides of the typical open trailer than a regular truck bed.

the truck is one of those thats totally flat in the front .. like a mini semi. its pretty small.

it looks like a killer set up, the bed itself slopes down quite a bit so they just drive right up onto it.. no need for a trailer at all. truck looks pretty new.

what are these called? what brands make trucks like this?
thanks guys

Isuzu NPR with a landscaper bed. They are great for maintenance and I would never go back to trucks and trailers.

There are plenty on trucktrader.com and truckpaper.com. Considered medium duty and you don't have to have a CDL to drive them.
