    I narrowed the tire support by one inch and cut the front channel off also cut out a space for the axle. I still have to put it back in the trailer mount.

    Exactly what you have to do. It can be done with the two bolt system but I dig the permanent welds.

    Right on Falcon.

    Nice work Richard!

    I may try a set of fast straps and secure my z over the double axle so I could have room for dry Fert when applying it or maybe put my water tank in front instead of in the bed of the truck on full liquid rounds.

    Master Gardener,
    I'd like to see a pic of your setup, was that a van, with a rack...

    Thanks
    I tried the one bolt but the arm kept moving. I just did not have a good feeling about it. I will post pictures of the Z locked into it.

    I like fast straps, they go over the tire, when your done you remove the woven strap, but the base bould stay connected to the bed, you can drive over it, etc

    I think for the dump truck fast straps would work pretty good

    As far as the sprayer connection goes there are 2 1x1 square tubes in the front of the frame that are good connection points. Also in Falcon's last pic with the Stihl in the background, on the far right side about 1/5 the way from the top of the pic is a little hole in the frame, that's plenty enough support.
