    I've seen people showing pictures of their rigs so I thought I'd share some pictures of mine with you.
    This first on is how I get the debris into the truck.
    The second is a little closer.
    The third is how I unload.

    Pretty neat setup, its effective judging by the pics. I'd set something like that up if I had a bagger on a Z and a truck like that.

    Thanks, I use the truck and that riding unit for snow too. I take the mower deck off and install the blade and that's my detail plow. With a couple of ramps I can go from the ground to the truck. Rider acts as weight for the truck when plowing or just getting around, and there's enough room to haul over a ton of icemelt.

    thats sweet. I like the truck, I wish I could find a dodge with a dump bed like that, only dodge dumps i see are the city trucks, and they're not forsale :(

    I couldn't find a truck bed that did this to buy so I built one. Been noticing that there are ways to make our lives a little easier, we just don't have the equipment available to us.

    i'm glad someone finally had the same idea as me i've always thought of putting a mower in the truck and then a ramp to the trailer but i've never seen if done better. Nice job!

    I dont know about you,

    BUT if i was a one man show, I could cut grass till i was 80 with that set up. just sit on the mower and go, back it up to dump... o yea..

    Very well thought out. I saved the pics for my thought in the future. Very Good work.

    Thank you, I'd been thinking of something like this for some time now, and man does it save the back. The bed was the first thing that I made. Here's a pic of the lastest thing that I've done. Tell me what you think.

    man I bet it would be fun to hook a sulky up to just the frame and ride around.
