    Looks like it would be a pretty simple set of shop drawings. Get me a good side view, rear view, and pay for my time doing them and I can knock it out.

    Nope. My screen name isn't even close to my company name. Found out the hard way. Talking about yourself online and you become a prime target for identity theft.

    So I have decided an all in one truck setup is in our future. Have a 2005 ram longbed regular cab that will work perfect.
    anyone have pics of their longbed truck setup with landscaper bed?
    or factory bed with dovetail/ramp setup?
    or factory bed with just a different gate setup?
    If so how has the ramp held up, which brand did you go with?

    I know there are older threads, but many of the picture links don't work anymore, and most I find are huge cabover trucks or rangers.

    Thinking about keeping the bed and just getting a tailgater or similar type ramp, or having the dovetail/gate made for it, not sure what would make the most sense.

    On my ram I can still fit a 48" between the wheel wells, so currently thinking one 30" commercial exmark mower and one 48" turf tracer. Main reason for this setup will be parking it every night an affordable enclosed secure storage spot, which wouldn't be possible with a truck and trailer. Looking for efficiency, but also the capability to do most any lots we would normally service within that route area to keep it tight, hence the larger mowers than the standard 21" setup. Thanks for your input!

    mowers will be setup to mulch. If we do need to bag, we will leave the clippings, same as we do now with trailers.

    I try not to bag, but it is difficult to mulch a fertilized lawn in April & May, unless you double cut it & still it is noticeable. I was thinking of setting up a F-150 with a BTL-R ramp & a 30" Exmark & a 20" Honda to do small 1000 to 2000 square foot lawns. But I thought I would need space on the truck for 4 or 5 tall 44 gallon cans for the clippings.
