    I actually drove this truck to texas to have it done. I live in VA. Long ride but well worth it. The bed cost $2200.

    Truck will be outfitted with 2 quick 36, 2 shindawia trimmers 1 stick edger, 1 backpack blower, 1 handheld blower, 2 prolockers, tool box, 2 saftey cones, and water cooler. The front of the truck is getting a full wrap and signs on the back ramps. Total cost for rig including going to texas about $25000 including truck.

    Nice profit maker there. Especially since you can have a 2 man crew (with 2 walk behinds on it).

    The most efficient setup I ever had was a used F-150 6-cylinder with a full size bed that had a full width folding ramp (the type that replaces the tailgate). I had a similar equipment set up (racks and such) except that I could only hold one (1) 36" or 48" walk behind.

    Your setup should be very nimble, productive, and, cost efficient. Good job.
