    Gottcha, the last few dove tails we've bought must not have been that good because they were all quite heavy. I did try the "gator lift" or what ever it was called but it wore out rather quickly.

    The springs are good but they need to be replaced once a year.

    good deal man, we actually just bought a used one from super lawn trucks as well at a very fair price. this one will be for our construction crew instead. the maintenance crew has loved their new one so far and my crew was getting jealous.

    muddywater-

    any problems getting the mowers up and down the ramp without dragging? looking at doing the same thing. and can you add a hitch still at the bottom so you could still pull a trailer when it comes to time mulch jobs?

    thanks

    No problem with mowers, yes I have seen guys put a trailer hitch on them. Isuzu's really aren't made for pulling though, they just seem to pull better when the weight is on the frame.

    Thanks I will let you know if I find any deals on a isuzus. I bought a 06 4-door isuzu npr in your neck of the woods a couple months ago and am trying to keep up with brandonv :), but I haven't had time to outfit it yet. I can't decide if I am gonna put a sidedump and box, or just a box.
