Super Truck

What is the average cost of an 16' or 18' Super Truck. I was in the market for buying a new truck and wondering what the prices some of you paid for one. Thanks.

Don't know but make sure that you get it built on an American truck chassis. The Isuzu NPR's are junk. Trust me they are.

DIESEL!!!
I just happen to use a Dodge for my work truck.
I installed a Banks Power Pack in it and it does nicely OTR!

Check out the website of SLT (Super Lawn Truck) www.superlawntrucks.com Tony Bass has done some great things with Trucks.

Awesome Rigs!
Thank you for that post.
I'm a part-timer but have thought alot about an enclosed rig.

Isuzu NPRs are not junk. They are an excellent chassis for stop and go city driving. I sure there are many other guys who are actually old enough to legally own a truck who will agree.

n1alx- You are ignorant when it comes to trucks. Do not comment on stuff you don't know. I am tired of reading your bs, and i think many other people are.

Ditto on the above 2 posts! I've already been around this issue with the "child" and he's not a fast learner. People come here for help and answers from experienced others in the landscaping field, not for misinformation from someone who still watches Spongebob Squarepants.

i looked at the SL trucks last year and they r great
however the cost was high and i felt it was more than i wanted to spend on 1 truck
there r other companies that make van bodies with beaver tails that will do almost the same thing cheaper u have to lift the gate
oh well
if u can afford it the SL truck is a sweet ride

Your better off going to your local UD, ISUZU ETC. dealer and ordering a truck with the van scaper body. That is a dove tail body with a metal ramp.
