I have about 20 hours on the PG machine. Things are going good so far. Although I feel a little unorganized to accustom myself to this machine. Question is, how do you guys transport the machine? I am always tying it dow, putting up the ramp, laoding fert, all this to me is time. I want to be more efficient. Ideas!! Basic open trailer, cargo trailer, van, ect. Pics would be great!

We use the Perma-Green hitch mounted carrier, load a pallet with the forklift, and have tanks filled with water, we also use old chemical 2.5 gal container for water. We also use an enclosed trailer and a pallet jack to load the fertilizer.

Im having the same problem i have a trailer. Just hate to pull

That pic of the van w/ the PG mounted on the front is the one I just bought about a month ago. I never mount it on the front though. I mount on the back and put my walk behind spreader on that front mount.
I have been thinking about putting the PG on a trailer because it is so inconvenient to get into the back of the truck if I just need fert. for my walk behind. I have a 200 gal. spray rig taking the entire side door area.

Thanks for the pics guys. I like the ideas you have implemented. Now since you all own one, do you carry straight water? Have chemical mixed ahead of time? I carry water but I am also to the point that I will run out with - depends upon locations of the day, litle stuff or big, but if I'm in the area, I try to hit everyone, big or small. Then I find myself refilling with garden hose at there house or placeof business.
