anyone have more pictures of using just a truck to haul your gear around.
I'd like to start out with just a ford ranger and a permanant mounted ramp on the back with a walk behind etc.

Who makes Beaver tail options? Where I rent I can only park one vehicle and I can't have a trailer,,,, even though the landlord has a ton of open space here.

Jesus. You need a 3/4 ton.

I have a Chevy 1500 8 ft bed. I need to get a trailer in the near future. I'm starting to outgrow it!

I'd post a picture of my setup, but I just got done unloading everything.
What do you use the 2 backpack sprayers for?
