View Full Version : New Landscape Body

04-26-2004, 10:01 PM
We are coming out with a new landscape flatbed this summer. If any Lawnsite members have any suggestions or would like to inquire about pricing and availability please respond to this post. I am in the process of setting production options and prices now. There are other bodies on the market currently but ours are quite a bit sturdier structurally than what is available. By the way, we are a Lawnsite sponsor. Thanks for taking a peak and I look forward to your input.

I have a landscape body and what we find handy is the sides on the deck fold down for hauling pallets of whatever, curious as why the sides are so tall. looks well made.

We normally build these with 12" fold downs but this particular customer wanted his sides higher. I agree though that the fold downs or removable sides are a good choice.

I can't tell from the pics, is there a trailer hitch receiver in the back. Even thought that truck likely wouldn't pull a trailer I would want one anyway. I hope the tail lights are rubber mounted to take the dropping. Under belly tool boxes would be a nice option and would be a handier spot for fuel jugs especially at filling time. Maybe even one of the sections could swing open to remove jugs to refill.

looks like the dovetail might be to steep for some mowers did you guys test it out, i like the high sides nothing will fly out

I also like the high sides, although I didnt see any equipment racks or are they comming later?

We can make these to fit any truck or chassis but because of the re-inforcing required for the ramp, it is necessary to have the truck for measurement unless it is a new cab and chassis that we have specs for. There are no options like trimmer racks or tool cribs in these photos but they were added later by the owner. In addition to this model we are also planning an aluminum version. We have also modified many existing bodies and added a ramp and gate package.
