    I got it at www.northerntool.com. Check and see if there is a location by you. Order it through a local northern tool store and you don't have to pay shipping. Only problem with it is that you have to mount it higher than the receiving tank because it is a gravity flow. I'm still planning on where to mount it high enough.

    I love it. Has been working great and delivers such a nice cut. Only thing it could do better is stripe. I may get a striping kit for it. My next mower will be a toro.:)

    The ranger pulled the 6.5 X 12 very well power wise (it had the 4.0 liter). No problem in the city. On the highway it would want to go in and out of O/D and was pretty hard to keep up to speed. The biggest downfall was the brakes. It took a looonggg time to stop. If I was pulling the trailer more with a ranger, I would DEFIANTLY get trailer brakes. I do not really need them now with the 2500HD. It would be a good little rig if the trailer had brakes.

    Cool, Alarsh,

    At the end of the year, I'm planning on getting the 2006/07 Ranger Fx4 Level 2.

    Have you asked or read about your local laws concerning the gas station mounting location ?

    We mounted one on our trailer a few months back and were pulled over by DOT and said it had to be mounted to our truck.

    I would pass on the ranger and step right up to a 3/4 ton, used. I made the mistake and purchased 2 vehicles a couple months a part and lost about $1,500. Luckily I was able to get a good price for the ranger both on the buying and selling part. I made the mistake and wouldn't want to do it again.

    rickt- I haven't checked but it says it is UN/DOT compliant.
