    Add a 4ft. dovetail with ramps to a box truck and you have a landscape truck. There are all different styles. SLT even offer 7ft electric ramp.

    lots of guys are starting to do this because you can keep everything locked up and out of the weather.

    This is my setup right now....

    I recently got my first Lazer Z and it's not as easy to get on and off with the hydraulic lift so I'm selling my truck (if anyone is interested) and I will get another box truck with a dovetail.

    I love it. The only reason I haven't lettered it is because I know I'm gonna get another truck for better fuel mileage and convenience (ramp).


    What y'all think?

    only problem with box trucks is that you don't have the ability to carry much in the way of debris...

    Some shelving,storage racks and swap out the lift for a dovetail and you would have a great setup with the one you have.
