    I was thinking about buying a 8x16 trailer and just pull it with my half ton Nissan Titan but I love the Isuzu Box Truck. Th box truck looks more professional, beats pulling a trailer, great turning radius, advertising, etc. How does this sound for a commercial set up? 16ft Isuzu Box Truck, 61 Scag Turf Tiger, 52' Scag Tiger Cat, and a 32' scag walk behind? Does this sound like a money maker?

    I'm not sure if the Isuzu can be bought off the lot with the dovetail... So that will have to be an upgrade, plus wrapping or lettering. They are great though. They are good on fuel, and you will have no problem with room inside. And you have your truck to move materials, ie: brush, mulch, loom

    I have seen a few already with the dovetail installed. I think it would be a good investment. Heck i spent $30k on a brand new envoy a few years back and it doesn't earn me a penny. Thanks for the feedback....

    i have a box truck set up. It is e-350 12' and I did ramps my self (took me 3-4 days) If you gonna go this way you will be happy! Your tractors will love being in dry box instead of under the rain/tarp stuff. At this time I am looking to upgrade for 16 ft and it is probably gonna be savana box truck. Don't get me wrong, isuzu is a great trucks but they cost a lot more. Another thing is all your stuff can be locket in the box. many of my friends (also landscapers) moving towards the box trucks

    If and when I get mine I will be one of the first in this area, everybody else is running truck and trailer set up. I want a nice looking truck, I'm thinking 2006 or newer with a fairing on the top.
