200 Gallon Sprayer 15 boom. What do you think? Goes through 48" gates, tackles hills like they are nothing with the push button four wheel drive!

I was not, that thing would solve some immediate need issues, new spray rig is one, I have a new route with many more small stops, tight area but its a pita to park anything and full sized and box vans are only on the island a short time, like 10-3 mon-fri.

100 gallon tank and a small trailer and its on...........

Put some buckshot mudders on it and you could do some right-of-way work.

Not sure about Florida, but you might check and the laws about driving these mini trucks on the streets. There is also a mini truck forum that has a lot of info about these trucks, that might be a good place to start.

Treegal,

All joking aside...with the volume it takes to spread organic products...you could put a small webbed V-Box on the back of that thing and do some serious spreading. You could even use it as a topdresser or spread ammendments!

I would definilt put some "floater" tires on it though!

I was thinking for my version of fert and squirt, 100 gallons of tea and a trailer with 400 lbs of bio sludge 5-4-4. just to do some of the small pos 2K and under town homes and a small community or 2 that i service....... its a lot cheaper than a gator and street legal from what i found so far, and a mail truck is just..... it looks ghetto...

also seen a Toyota on the mini truck forums.....

Street legal? If that's not, then you have an argument... If these "smart cars" http://www.smartusa.com/ Are street legal, then the mini truck should be too. What's the difference? Either way I kinda feel a little sorry for the driver of one of them when they get into a wreck with a REAL automobile. Won't be much of anything left, especially that peice of soft meat behind the wheel.

That little truck would make an interesting rig for sure... Put some wide tires on it and no worries about ever rutting a lawn with it.

Absolutely. Put some turf tires on that thing and it would be perfect.

Nice Rabbit!

You should draw some serious attention to yourself when using that!

That is the key...is getting people to look at you!

Let me know how that works.

I would love to get one sometime...but it will have to be after my spending freeze is over...or it I have a good year so I don't have to give all my money to Barack Hessein Obama! :laugh:

I would put some taller sides on the bed and use it as a billboard. Get that name BIG so they can see you a block away!

I bet you will get some good work from it...while also saving some GAS! :clapping:

I would never buy or drive one, Im not secure enough for that,LOL but that thing is pretty cool. Looks like its even right hand drive. You could deliver mail as a side job, LOL

Being that low to the ground 85 mph probably feels like 125 mph doesnt' it?

Going 85 mph in thatv little thing and hitting a pack of moths could de-rail you! :laugh:


BTW...do you know what the last thing is that goes through a moths mind after it hits your windshild?






It's a$$! :laugh:

That thing wold be awesome for commercial props!

Put a 30 gallon tank on it and a 15-20 ft boom and you would be good to go! You could maybe even mount a spreader and it would acomplish the same thing as a ride on!

so wheres the spinners?? lets see????JK I have my eyes on a rig like that, i keep lurking around...... just imagine a dual tank with a boomless setup, injectors and a 200 foot hose reel, talk about the cats meow maybe a front mount receiver for the spreader??? and the back a topdresser....

watch out sports turf here we come:weightlifter:

Ok Rabbitman11, spill the beans!

I am very intrigued by this thing.
I think it could be great for bids and pest control.

So, how much was it? Did you buy it new or used?
I noticed most of them are about 900# payload, is that right?

That could be about the slickest little attention getter that I have seen in a while.

I found a couple places that import them used, but they import them as ag equipment to avoid import fees, so they can't be used on the street.

I paid 7600 for it and yes it is used. The payload is around 1000lbs. A lot of guys say it can handle more. There is a company that makes these in the US, and they are brand new. The name of the company is tiger trucks and they are out of Oklahoma. www.tigertruck.com

Drove on 65 at 70mph...

Anyways the truck is great its really fun driving in the snow. No problems at all. Taking it in to get the bed sprayed at linex.
