    Any one have pictures of custom bodies or links to pics on specifially cabover trucks, mainly beds with ramps for mowers.

    I am thinking of having one fabricated and would like some ideas. Is there a specific length limitation?

    i would like to be able to put 2 exmark 60 inch riders, a WB mower, backpack blowers, trimmers and WB blowers on this truck. Seems much easier for employees to drive one of these type trucks, rather than a truck + trailer around town.

    Womack truck bodies (dallas georgia)
    Ingram Truck bodies also make them.(ball ground georgia)
    They both have pics on there websites.
    Tons of others on the web as well..but sorting through the dump bodies when you use "landscape bodies" is a pain.

    I just built one on the back of a NPR box.Do a search on my name and you'll see the pics.(search in the truck and trailer forum)

    BTW....i'd imagine a 16ft bed would be a minimum for those mowers.

    my current truck has a 12 foot dump body on it.

    i plan on removing that and adding the landscape body, 16 is probably the minimum, but 18-20 would be ideal, dont know if it will fit.
