    they'll work just fine for you. One think i'd suggest is getting a door toward the front big enough for you to put a whole pallet into via the side. We don't have that option but we own a telhandler and use it and a pallet jack for the last couple of feet when needed. This image was stolen from superlawntrucks.com btw[​IMG]

    Brandon i was thinking putting a pallet of fert on the left side and then a 100 or 200 hundred gallon tank on the right. I used the Milwaukee water pump this season with a garden hose and wow did it pump water. someone on here gave me the link to it and i bought it at HD. Looks like you could get two rideons side by side. Or a ride on and a standon aerator on the other. Just need to have someone fabricate a way to hold them in place with transport. ya looks like it would be a great investment. Just need to see what i need in PA by way of licenses to drive the bloody thing.

    I think you'll find this to be a big improvement.

    I’m looking at more an open truck. The rain doesn’t bother me that much. I have a tight service area and plenty of places to take cover if needed

    For me enclosed is the way to go because space is at a premium. I work out of a 12 by 30 shed. Being able to put my rideons in the truck would free up valuable space. Then after that I will be looking for some land to build on.
