For LC only, why not a Van? They are cheap, you can find F250's and F350's vans that can haul anything plus, everything is enclosed for hiding various tools.

Use an enclosed small trailer and the rig is pretty safe.
Look for an used cared for Church van and you would probally have a decent rig.

Just a thought..

Sprot tracks are good transportion. Not the best for lawn care or landscapers. For a the average homeowner just ducky.

For the average LCO a half ton unless you plan to really upgrade. A 1 ton to pull a 6x10 might be overkill. A 16 foot with 3 or 4 larger mowers it makes sense.

buying a "sport trash" to run a lawn biz and pulling an enclosed trailer, well thats just setting yourself up for failure.

there is a reason that 99% of lawn guys use Trucks.

just get a crew cab truck and save yourself the uselessness of a sport trash...
