    I have been using this truck for the last couple of months I just haven't had any time to take pics. The build thread is here http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=343740&highlight=chevy+dovetail . It gets used 5 days a week to mow residential only. It's equiped with a 40" Toro, a 21" Toro and Redmax handhelds with an extreme trimmer rack. It has worked out very well thus far. The route is so tight that one tank of gas lasts 3 weeks in this thing. I wish the truck itself was newer but it does the job for now.

    That is awesome! I wouldn't want a newer truck if I was you. Those old trucks last forever and parts are cheap. How many man crew you run??

    Looks nice!!! Only problem I would have would be where to put the grass?? We collect apprx. 50% of our lawns..Don't get me wrong, these types of trucks definately have their place!!!
