Hey guys, I'm buying a maintence/light duty mulch/box truck for my business. Only thing is I don't mow grass anymore and was wanting an opinon so I can get things priced. It'll be a ford lcf or w4500 or sterling cabover, I'm going to outfit it w/ a switch n go, with the main bed being a landscaper bed (or maybe a "vanscaper'') what i want to know, hopefully from you guys that mow more, is what lenght of bed do i need (minus dove tail) to get eventually 2 mowers on... right now we run just one walker, and some push mowers and occasionally they take the permagreen with them. we have a 14' trailer now, but its not as wide as the truck will be so i just want opinions on bed sizes, and hey if you have truck preferences yell em out too... merry christmas!

i can put 2 riders and 2 walkers in my 20' trailer, a 14' would be plenty for just 2 riders but i think i woulld go with a 16' or even a 20' you never know how things can grow.

Our 16' Vanscaper will fit a 60" dixie chopper, 48" snapper WB and our dingo with easy and still have room to spare.

The SNG bodies are already specific size options. 8' wide and 14-15' long. You can buy just the frame and create your own custom setup....or give them the #'s to go off of.

ho ho ho
