    I've had a few instances where I've put 1 48" Wb and 2 52"s on a NPR, but realisticly you probably don't need that many mowers on a day to day basis on the truck unless you're running a crew cab NPR. Regular cab NPR's can hold 4 small amigos and that's not enough people for 3 mowers to be running on a property. I've always believed 2 mowers is all that's needed for one crew. If you need more than 2 mowers to do a job; bring 2 crews.

    We have had a Turf Tiger 61 and a Tiger Cub 48 on a 16ft NPR and it was tight. I think we had the Turf Tiger on first and then the Cub behind it. We had enough room for our walk behind blower and two push mower beside them. You might we able to fit two 61's and a walkbehind if you put the Turf Tigers side ways and the walkbehind on the the dovetail. I would try and get a larger bed either an 18ft or 20ft.
