    Company claims their largest platform could carry a large rider or WB & a push mower leaving the bed clear for 2 cycles etc. Anyone seen this set-up?

    for $1000 bucks you could buy a pretty large trailer. its a neat concept, and would be a good idea to use on a box truck type set up. id be interested in seeing if somebody has done this. its basically a lift like semis have for a pickup.
  3. That's would be like 1000# tounge load.

    And at the price they probably want, you will limit your self.

    A trailer is the best for this biz.

    Or a Grassmaster truck.

    I have some city routes where trailering is difficult but I would never run mowers on that. Company claims many LCO's do.
    I was thinking of using it for a 2 stage snowblower.
