Default Lawn care truck

I saw this lawn care truck and snapped a quick shot through the window. What a neat design! I don't think I have seen anything like this one on the forum yet. With such a design, you wouldn't need a trailer and it seems it would be perfect for a mow,blow, and go crew of 2.

What's your view on this?

Truck with a trailer would give the owner more options to use this truck to haul product, the design it's self is interesting but I wonder how hard it is to get on and off as it must be very heavy.

That is exactly what I'm planning for my truck. In lieu of a trailer I think it's much more convenient and efficient to run a flatbed with a built in ramp.

Mine will be a much lighter version though as I will be using it for a one-man crew on a 1/2 ton truck.

Those types of trucks are becoming more popular in my area.

What kind of advantages do you feel you would gain from them versus having a trailer? Or a box truck?

The only advantage I see is not having to hook up a trailer.
Personally I would rather have a trailer. More flexibility that way for clean ups etc.

You don't have to have the extra insurance, registration and inspection if you don't have the trailer. A shorter platform is safer and easier to control. Besides, if needed you can still attach a trailer if for some reason it did become necessary. For me it all comes down to one major point; I just don't have room for a trailer.

With such a truck, How can you attach a hitch? It seems the rear would be very weak hanging the way it does off the end of the frame like that.

If Most of them don't have such a radical overhang. I can get mine done, I'll show you.
