    Does anyone here who owns a Z-Spray Jr (36" width), know the overall height of the machine? I'm trying to figure out if one would fit in the back of a van. If anyone could tell me how tall they are, I'd be most grateful.

    Have you looked into the hitch haulers? They work great!

    Why is everybody so afraid of a trailer? An enclosed trailer is its own self contained garage.

    We're ramped Z's into the back of a step van on occasion, PITA. Enclosed trailers are the way to go or maybe a Z-trailer if you can find one

    Very true!! A dedicated cargo sure does make life on the turf a lot easier.

    Most of the neighborhoods I service don't have enough room between the driveway aprons to park a truck and trailer without blocking one of those aprons. Turning around and navigating through tight-spots can be a drag with a trailer also. When I used to mow with a truck and trailer, I though I had arrived when I switched to a box truck.
