    huh....try it and see???

    Even if it does I'm sure because of the handle bars it will be too tall. But the bigger question is WHY would you even want it to fit?????? ;)

    A 52" will fit with no problem.Have to use a van once in awhile if a bigger truck breaks down.Two 52" and a 21" handmower will fit along with ramps and trimmers and blowers

    If you are using a van it is a little tight at times but can be very useful if you live in an apt.lock your truck at night and your equiptment is not exposed to thieves, stays dry when it rains and out of the snow. It is also easier to drive than a trailer and takes up less space but it does become a dedicated vehicle to mowing if you set it up that way.Two of my trucks are 14' box trucks which we use for mowing, similar to the SLT trucks and have been using them since'90. We have no trailers for our mowers.Mainly we use the van( a '94 GMC 3500) for fertilizing but with a 200 hundred gallon tank in it we also can get a 52" and a 21" in it.Actually I think you are thinking smart and inovative.Go for it.

    Ask lawnsandmower.... He runs a Toro out of a van.
    Pretty cool way to roll with a WB in my honest opinion... if it's a 'service' van.
