i would suggest getting a fullsize truck, you'll reget it if you don't. it's nice for fall cleanups, hallin things and trailers. i used to have a jeep grand cherokee, but recently traded it in for a 99 F150. it's not much more $ to get a fullsize. i have a 54" kubota zt., 12' trailer. im 19 yrs old

The deck you are referring to is called a sulke. It is towed behind the walkbehind and you can ride on it so you can mow open areas at a faster speed than you can walk. I would agree with everyone get commercial equipment...check for good used stuff. And try to get a truck with an 8 foot bed, will make life easier for you
