    my guys love the box truck..Its super easy to train the driver on and it hardly ever gets damaged like our crews with trucks and trailers.

    Floor in the Isuzu style trucks are made above the tires. I would want a side door on the passenger side.

    That is a VERY nice box truck!!!!! That is what I want.

    What size is the box?
    Did it come with the dove tail or you added it?
    Did you buy it new or used?
    Can you fit 2 ztr's in it?
    Is it gas or diesel?
    What kind of mpg are getting with it?

    Thanks

    I can answer a few of those myself because I know a little from looking at 'em for sale...

    his is a diesel..if you look under the driver's side windshield wiper it has a decal that says "TURBO Intercooled".

    It appears to be at least 14' from looking at it and, speaking as an owner of a 14'er, yes, you can fit 2 zero turns on it. I will add that you have to be mindful of your floor space. I recommend utilizing the wall space as best as possible when you get one. Not just for trimmers & edgers, but for blowers, sprayers, etc. as well
