    2 gates help us transition from the midsized to larger grounds on the same lawn route. 4hp22"MTD bigwheel push & 17KawV 48"Bobcat hydro wb mowers come off the side gate if desired. Dbl axle treats the 25KohlerV 60"Dixie Chopper Z nice in transit, and a spare trailer tires on both sides protect it in case of side-impact. Z & WB are ratchet-strapped in transit, fuel valves are shutoff. Yellow 39gal trashcan holds rakes, broom, shovel, tarp. Each trailer wheel has an electric brake with a set of 5-leaf springs. Blowers,spare mower tires on wheels, addt'l hand implements and equipment fuels are in truck's bed. All is stored indoors out of the weather when not in use.

    Its a custom 15-foot we had designed strictly for tight turns, Mitch.
    The Superduty is shortbed for same reason, and for plowing tight turns by itself.

    we use the side gate 50% time, mrbray, thanks.
    sure makes off-load easier for the smaller yards.
