The beds on the home depot trucks are made by truck craft.

When I went to look at the in Selmar,Tn. We set the ramps up that come with them to see what angle they were. I wouldn't be brave enough to drive a ZTR or a veilke up them into the bed.

Here is what I don't like about them. The gas tank is in the very back behind the bumper. Getting a trailer hitch mounted could be a issue.

What website did you find these on? I really like these trucks, but the only one I've seen forsale someone had painted the bed.

I found them on Craigslist and did a internet search and found a few. They are fleet leased to Home Depot and are released after a certain time. Most have under 60,000 miles on them.

I agree - I use folding aluminum ATV ramps and a standard height truck:
  • Quick 36 on occasion - works very well.
  • Plugr 850 Hydro - works well
  • Lawn Solutions WB aerator - still works but requires a fair amount of up pressure on the handle bars
  • Blue Bird S22 seeder/power rake - not fun or recommended.
  • Honda HS 1132 track drive Snow Thrower - works well

That's what makes the dovetail mod ideal for this biz - no silly ramps to fiddle with.....

Here is the UTE bed with ATV ramps - I see safety violations here. Unless I can't see the anchor straps....?
