single wheel flatbed

Here is my question...does anyone have any pics of a single wheel lawn truck? I have done the search and come up with little. I want to build one but need a few ideas on design. I am trying to carry two walkers with 42 inch decks. They can fit side by side but I am working with a 97 chevrolet 2500 frame. Any help, pics, comments, accepted. Thanks

I wanna do something similar, but never really thought of using a 3/4 ton, I was thinking 1 ton with detachable dovetail/ramp...I could put 36 and 60 stander, and use it for my spray rig, z spray

anyone got pics of them? I saw the other threads but not really what I want...3/4 ton should carry the weight of two walkers...one is an MT with 20hp kohler and 42 ghs deck...the other is a MB with18hp briggs and 42 mulching deck...about 1600 pounds plus weight of bed equals about 2100lb...maybe airbag it...

That's a cool idea but that thing is hideous. I think the npr style is the only way to go.

it might be ugly, but it will make money. I like the NPRs too but my budget wont allow. Maybe once I go fulltime, I may can afford one.

I think the old ford is what makes it look ugly. Ive seen it done to newer fords and chevys and it doesnt look bad at all.
