View Full Version : Wil-Ro landscape truck
09-23-2008, 08:20 PM
I saw this truck in the latest edition of Turf and I did some research on it. It really looks like "the cat's meow" I've always wanted a landscape truck like this but then if I have grass or leaves on it, shoveling it off would be the only option. Also, with this type of body, it gives me more options for use in winter since I am in Minnesota. Any opinions on this? Does anybody know how much just the body and hoist would cost?

Call Neely and Coble in Nashville they have them in stock.

price doesnt seem tooo bad!
I have one of the landscape beds like this on their website its on a F-550, love the outfit, one of the best things I ever bought. The company is great to work with and workmanship is top notch.
Its seems like an ideal set up. I have emailed them a couple times for specs on the dump hoist, weight, and price and never got a responce. If you get any information, please post.

I have one on a International 4300. Hoist will pick up 10tons. Great bodies, and great company to work with. I will buy another one. Think I paid around 5300 for it installed.
10 tons is impressive. 5300 aint bad either. Do you have any sides on yours? Any problems hooking and unhooking? Can it be done daily? Also, do you have any pics?? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance.

If you look on our website, we have pics of it plowing, and hauling snow. When its hauling snow, we have some wood sides on it.
Hook up and unhooking takes about 10mins. Very easy to do.
Great, I did take a look. I would have some aluminium sides fabbed by a local shop. Thanks again for all the info.

I really like the looks of that bed and that price is pretty good i dont know that you could get just a regular dump bed for under that. Is there anywhere you can see what is involved in removing the dovetail section?

Here is some food for thought............it's a bit more expensive but allows you more options:
No commission............just a happy owner :)
By the way..........I did see the landscaper body at the dealer when I picked up my last container and it's very nice !

$5,300 doesn't seem too bad for that set-up
