    On your truck with the Billy Goat, does it have barn doors ? So you can just swing it out while you dump, or do you have to remove loader each time... and how do you have it attached ?

    Yes. Barn doors. No need to remove it to dump. I had a fab shop in town weld an angle iron to the door and it bolts right on them we run a 2” strap under it for added support. Never had an issue.

    Ding ding ding. We found that truck at a local dealer for a helluva deal. Couldn’t pass it up. It’s a little tall for my amigos but they seem to like it. I’ll get some better pictures of it soon.

    Well I have gotten a little tired of trailer maintenance lately. They tend to be an easy target for nails in the tires and are always in the back of my mind when the crew pulls into the gas station as far as hitting another car or something else. So I decided to try one of these out. I’m a Ford fan when it comes to my business vehicles and like I said before I got this at a steal. We don’t run any zero turn mowers any longer, our largest machines are 52” QuickTrak stand on mowers so we don’t need a huge bed or trailer. The 15’ bed on this F450 is perfect for our needs. It is also easier for the driver to maneuver around our smaller HOA’s.

    Great idea! You fly under the radar a bit better of MTO/DOT too without a trailer.
