    Has anyone thought of or seen a truck built like a two for one package, a dump and a mower truck. I was thinking of making a ramp setup that would some how be able to put on both of my dump trucks, but easy to take off. I like the idea of the trucks that carry the mowers on the back, but don't want a dedicated truck for this. It would be nice to have a mower truck, but in like 5 mins have a dump truck. And i could switch that attachment between the two trucks in case one was broke down.

    Find my thread...dodge dovetail or something like that and check out my ramp system. It is very easily removable and simple to make.

    How does that 72 work out as far as the deck hanging up? Looks kind of steep. I don't what to weld the actual dove tail part to the dumptruck it has to be able to be revoved too, not just the gate but thanks

    A switch and go system or a hooklift system would work good. The switch and go might be cheaper plus the fact it acts more like a dump truck over a hooklift.
