    Got the truck route set up for small properties this year wich will make accessing some of the smaller accounts much easier and quicker. Now just waiting for the weather to straighten out so we can get everything on schedule and get going full speed.

    Really like the look of that setup for the smaller properties, I keep thinking of doing something like that to my 1500 once I have a second work truck. If you don't mind me asking how much was it for the ramp?

    I ordered a ramp from tail gate ramp.com but the ramp was a 4 fold and flexed way to much like in the first pic and made the angle way to steep plus folding something up 4 times was a pain so I welded it into a 2 piece and added an additional 8 or so inches in lenghth and that helped a lot at some point when I am sure the design has everything I am looking for I will have it remade out of aluminum.

    I have to much in it because It started as a ramp I ordered but around $1000.00 in it but I can make one of those for probally $500 now that I have design ideas from a couple places I would suggest having one made locally out of aluminum.

    Yes in the second pic the mower with the upright controls is a 48 the first pic the mower with pistol grips is a 52 but it will only fit with deck all the way up I use the 48 in the set up right now

    Thanks its a work in progress but its already been great the couple times I have had it out for the really small properties , I would much rather use a trailer but as town gets more and more congested etc it should save me a lot of headache for the small properties.
