It is a RZT but I will get a commercial if it all works out and I make money from this.
Here is the sign on the trailer.

When you trade it even though you can peal them off, the paint will still show where and even what it said. As I look at your outfit, have you considered puting decals on the side windows? You can get perforatted decals that allow you to see out but still have you message. (?)
Depending on how long you have the vinyl graphics or digital prints on the truck/car it may not leave any noticable fading.

Most companys switch trucks about every 2-5 years...if you dont get trucks that are RED you will be fine for a few years (TX, FL, etc. will get it a little faster though).
Red is the worst color for fading.

Also if you remove it corectly this will limit fading too.

Also in some state you have to have it on your truck.
(like here in Michigan)

The window is a good idea, but it limits the area you have on the sides, and like i said above..in some states you have to have 3" tall "Name" "Phone #" "City/State".

Magnets are ok, but they are looked at as "temparary signage" in most states and by some customers.

As for the perferated window prints, they dont last nearly as long as truck graphics/lettering. They also make it harder to see out at night as well as in rain/snow events.

Rick,

How did you attach the sign to the truck? Is that a piece of sheet metal? Did you use a couple of bolts to attach it?

yeah it the same as metal yard signs...I drilled a hole in each corner and used the plastic covered copper ground wire off of a cable wire and twisted it around the mesh on the gate. I like that the is coated so it blends in.

When you get a chance to use the cub, tell me how you like it. I think they look ok, but was wondering how they preformed.

Thanks

Sincerely

I will say first off nice mower. I use to have a cub cadet rider and then started having motor problems. So I then up graded to a zero turn and bought SCAG. I have used Dixie Chopper and John Deere too but in my opinion SCAG is the only way to go.

Good luck with the season!
