    I'm thinking of putting my Z-Max in a 3500 high top sprinter. I would like to have 200 gallons of water/solution in there as well as 60 bags of fert. Plus storage for daily chem. I was thinking of a tommy gate or attached ramp system for the back to get it in and out. Is anyone using this setup?
    What are the best setups for a Z-Max without a trailer?

    Box truck with dove tail. Is the sprinter a 1 ton?

    I agree with last post.

    We have two Isuzu's with dove tails and love them. Side door for loading pallets. Nurse tank bolted under the body where you often see exterior toolboxes located.

    I'd love to see some pics of your setups. I'm pulling on an open trailer right now and have thought about a box truck or enclosed trailer to designate to haul the water tank, fert, and chemicals.

    We carry the z plug on the trailer behind one of our Isuzu's.

    Thanks for the ideas. I like the dovetail option, but the only ones I have seen have an extension off the back. Is there anything built into the box? We have been using a E350 van with a 12 enclosed trailer. But it has been tough getting around the Greenwich and Westchester areas. Looking for self contained and compact. And the ability to handle 10-12 acres a day.

    Ace Organics,
    Check out the supreme vanscaper. It has the built in dovetail. We have a Hino 145 with 16ft box and 3ft dovetail we use for a maintenance crew. Both have advantages but for apps I would get the vanscaper.
