Has anyone ever put a permagreen rack on the hitch of a Ford F150? If so were there any problems?
250 or 350 would carry the weight better.
Not a good idea, do the math...
50gal water = 400 lbs
30 bags of fert = 1500 lbs
Then the machine on top of it.
Not to mention the machine is hanging (in an f-150 it might be dragging) off the back of the truck that will make the truck sag more than if the weigh was above or in front of the axle.
Seriously I'd consider a 250, we ran an 150 we beefed up with 250 springs, and ended up blowing an axle.
buy a small trailer or move up to a Z spray carry rack which has two wheels on the ground
Have to agree with the others. Doubt if a 150 would handle it. Get a trailer or a bigger truck. 150's aren't made to handle that kind of weight.
Thanks for the input guys. I didn't think it would be strong enough, but sure was hoping. I guess I'll haul it around in a trailer for another year.
