How do you guys secure your 200 gal+ sprayers to your trucks. Do you have any good ways that don't involve drilling holes in the bed?

Also, does anyone make hitch mounted spreader holders? I know you can get those platform type things that go in your hitch, you see them on minivans all the time. Anything for spreaders?

Thanks...

I meant to put this in the fert/pest section of the board, mods feel free to move.

I just bolt it to the bed, this also grounds the sprayer to the truck. It leaves a few small holes, but any truck you you aren't willing to drill a few holes in the bed of, probably shouldn't be a work truck.:laugh::laugh:

I just hate the idea of drilling and leaving the perfect spots for rust to start. God I hate rust.

We installed heavy rings on the top side of the bed (4 of them) bolted in. We then ran HEAVY DUTY (I think they are 3 inches wide) ratchet straps over the tank in 2 places. A 3rd was sued to keep the tank forward in the bed. Been like that several years with no problems at all.
