How are you carrying your Z Spray

How do you carry your Z Spray? I'm getting a Jr36 in a few weeks and I'm wondering what you've found to be the most efficient way to carry? I've looked at Smart Mfg's carrier/trailer hybrid, but that leave me to take everything every time I need to load a pallet of fert. Btw, I have a crew cab F250 longbed, SRW. I've got single and double axle trailers, but none have side gates. I'll probably be using those for now, unless someone can enlighten me on the ideal setup. Thanks for you input.

I have an intermediate and use a 6x12 single axle... But I have been looking at that little unit they have that can be put on a rack, I could use that for all my residentials and leave the trailer at home...

Have you looked at Smart Mfg's "rack" or is that what you're talking about? I'm assuming you're talking about the 36R

Look left and click on that PLUGR ad. They also have a nice rear carry caddy for aerators or other equipment. Strong yet it folds and rolls away nicely when not needed.

That is a nice looking unit. I'm worried about an unsupported rack due to the weight of the Z. Also, if I go that route, I'm worried I will be overloading my rear axle when I load a pallet fert in the bed. I really don't want to pull a trailer, but I think my truck's rear axle is going to be the limiting factor that forces me to.
