    Anyone run a spray truck with a zspray rack? This one carries a zmax. I’m currently in a truck/open trailer. I have an inside spot to park but looking at going the dedicated truck route.

    That’s great. But I could do all that with a box truck.

    We have an K3500 with a J36 Rackable. It requires a second hitch for support. Never had any issues, aside from dealing with Toro(Z) now...

    Here is another I found.

    I like the ability to run a hose if needed. Plus the tank setup is on a skid for removal and use in other ways.

    The problem with the open setup is just that...its open to the weather and theives. It would work perfectly in Southern California because “it never rains in Southern California”. At least that is what the title song from the 70’s mentions.

    I have an enclosed trailer setup...no issues with the weather and it is secure-well for the most part it is. Certain areas it is a PITA but 99% of the time it works out just fine.

    I used pick-ups with Ton-hoe covers. Tanks, fert, chem all fit under the cover.

    Inexpensive

    So I like the set up....

    One thing I would add to the leading setup would be a vacuum set up to vac up and slop or dry and to put back into applications. !!!!

    This is similar to the setup I use, works for me. I have a cage with drop down door on the driver's side for the backpacks.

    You make a good point, On-a-Call. A truck cap is a good idea--but--I would want one that was hinged on the driver side.
    So then--you could raise it up when running the pump or when filling the tank.
    Better yet if it had gas cylinder assist. Should have easy one hand opening and positive lockdown.
    Better if the skid sprayer were shifted 6 inches to the left or right, so there would be room for fert next to the skid sprayer tank. Stack bags vertically.

    If someone can figure out how to get a spreader conveniently inside, so much the better. Might have to go with a 50 or 60 pound spreader--they are smaller.

    Use a double length starter rope so you don't have to reach down inside the bed to start the pump. Put the hose reel on the fender in a convenient spot.

    This setup may be less than you think, at least it was for me.
