    Selling our original 2002 Ranger, set up for fast and efficient mowing. It has a tailgater ramp (minus 2 panels as it was too heavy and overkill), Jungle Jim's trimmer racks, two custom blower racks and a cooler rack.

    4 cyl. w/ 5 speed manual trans, A/C blows cold. No power locks or windows. Single CD player. Many new parts, tires are in great shape and fairly new. Overall an awesome truck, and great on GAS!

    It easily fits 2 21's or even a Quick 36 and a 21.

    Truck can be seen here:

    NO Equipment seen in pics is included!

    I'll have some updated pics including blower racks later today. Keep in mind the ramp is two panels shorter now, but you can weld them back on if you need the entire ramp.

    $7200 - Lowball Offers will be ignored.This is the first place I'm posting this, but will place the ad on Craigs or Ebay if no one is seriously interested here.

    Your rig looks similar to the "cut only" service in a recent Pro magazine article. Are you affiliated with them?

    Sorry, thought I threw that in there.

    Only 59K miles on it.

    Great truck, ready to go for mowing.

    Never mind...I found it.

    And HELL NO that isn't us. Not with that crappy website and business plan.


    Anyway, this truck is in great shape ready to get to work with many great years left on it.

    PM me for more details.

    Thanks!

    Goes up without a problem. You can wheelie a Quick with the touch of the throttle with ease. Just ride it up and you're done, amazingly.....QUICK.

    I should add we took it off due to the extra weight. We found ourselves only using the two tiers, and running it up that way every lawn. The other two tiers added about 40-50 lbs, which even with the assist spring added quite a bit stress at 30+ load/unloads per day.

    Depending on the mower this ramp may or may not work with 2 tiers. But for a Quick and it's lightweight it's no problem.
