View Full Version : Who has a landscape bed on their truck?

07-06-2002, 08:13 PM
Where can I find a landscaper's bed for my truck? In this months PRO mag, there is a story on GRN Designs. One of their trucks is a F350 w/ a landscape bed. The bed appears to be appx 12' long and the truck seems to be a standard LWB. Any idea on where to get one?

IS that on a regular long wheel base? Thats an incredible truck. Whats the cost on something like that? Did you order it like that or just the bed?
.......nice truck

I doubt it is on a standard lwb truck. Most aftermarket beds are made for a cab & chassis which uses a different frame. I imagine, though, someone makes a landscape-type bed for a standard long bed. It might take some research to find, though.

It wouldn't be to hard for a skilled welder to fabricate

That's not a 350, looks like a 450 or larger. Although, I've seen that on a chevy truck at a dealership. Some outfit called lawns 'r us uses them in Winston-Salem.

I'm thinking about the Mitsu. cabover.
There is a place in Fl. that does landscaper beds for almost any application.
Alumna is the name of the company. No website. I talked to a guy from the company last year about getting some info.Never got it. He said they were moving into a new facility and,at that time,were working on a website.
A few guys have the landscaper beds here,on the Isuzu cabover. Very nice. Another guy has a 16 ft. tandem trailer that was made by them.
Anyone ever bought from them or seen any of their products?

Trailers also.

Upon viewing the truck picture again, I feel stupid to have asked the LWB question. Thanks to all for the input. It might be better just to talk to someone about fabricating one just for me.

You may wish to go to:


Go to the forums section then hit the "search" button. Look for a username (not a topic) of "Smokey Wren". Over the last few months, he has been compiling and adding to a thread that has info and url's for all kinds of aftermarket bodies. I imaging there will be something on landscape bodies in one of the url's.

This subject may be long dead, but....

Wil Ro is the way to go for Landscape beds. I work in Nashville and everyone has these beds here. I have had two for three and four years. The are well built. Custom order to your specs on any truck. I have heard the now have a removable dove tail so you can have a dump bed also. Mine cost about 3g (17 ft, fold down sides, weedeater rack, headache box, and other little stuff. Highly recommend!!

Does Wil Ro have a sight, if they have a dump option, they just became that much more attractive.

I got a quote from some large companies and they wanted 4 grand for one of those 18 foot landscaper beds does that sound resonable that included ,trimmer racks,blower racks, tool boxes, gas racks, ect....

Guardian, if you are interested I have a truck with an 18' landscape bed on it. The truck is a 1995 Chevy Tiltmaster 40 diesel, the bed is 1 year old with tool racks in the front, and the curbside rail folds down for easier access.

most beds i have seen it is easy to turn em around for transport or driving off the trailer........you shouldnt have no problem....my buddy has a 62 inch mower and he turns it right around on his....no sweat
