    I'm not ready for it, but I'm thinking about it. I was in Atlanta last weekend and it's about all you see for most any type of business in the green industry. People I've talked to like them.

    I have one and love it. PG rack goes on the back and I have a ramp to get the z into when I run the z. I can put both machines inside with fert if I take out my 50 gal H2o tank.

    I have been thinking about this as well for my next truck. The concept of keeping everything out of the elements sounds fantastic.

    However some folks have said there are issues with spray tanks being used in enclosed trucks. They claim that the pumps, motors, etc. just have all kinds of issues due to the lack of clean air movement and heat.

    If it were used only to carry a Permagreen, that setup would be great. There will always be a need for a decent size spray tank in my situation. This is why I will be looking at the traditional open setup on an Isuzu chassis.

    I have my setup on an Isuzu Flat Bed. There are dayswhen I wish I had put an enclosed box on there instead. For anyone who has one enclosed or otherwise, would you mind sending me some pics too?
