I dont know the guy selling it. Plan to call 2morrow to set up a time to go drive it and check it out. He said hes motivated to sell, going to see if $3500 cash sparks his interest.

Looks like a good deal. 14' box is kinda small in my opinion to carry two mowers especially your walker and a ztr. I have a NPR with a 16' box and dove tail and wish it was 18 or 20. I carry a 72" and. 52" and it's not jammed tight but could use more room. They have a nice one in Br Craigslist with 20' box for 16,000.

One issue I see with it is hauling grass clippings. Not a lot of room for that. An outfit here in town has one very similar in size to that one that they use for applications with a big skid sprayer and a ride on unit. I'd be worried about running the Perma Green off the edge of the lift gate haha. Same would apply to mowers. Might be kinda akward to use a Walker on a lift gate.

Its not a regular lift gate, its a full width lawn ramp. I would prolly put a dovetail on it.

That would work very well. If the ramp is long enough you might not even need a dove tail? If I ever set one up I'd much rather have a ramp than a lift gate.
