Here is an image of a vehicle promoting Redbull. It really stands out.
Could you get a similar effect by somehow mounting a lawnmower on the roof of a truck somehow?

Or maybe create a fiberglass mower that could be molded around a real mower and then painted. Then mounted on top of a truck?

Would that make your truck and company stand out?

What about something like this. Would it draw attention? Is it possible?

It'd be very easy to mount a spreader to the roof, especially because how light they are, simple bracket would hold it. *

I could probably get an old push mower and use it as a mold for a fiberglass mower and mount it on my roof... *may have to think about that one.

What about putting a little sign in the handle that would say the company name and phone number? This way it looks like a prop and not some goof ball riding around with a mower stored on his roof? haha

Yea a sign would be good too. Part of me thinks you want people to turn their heads and say omg look at that. LOL then they will remember it. I never say anyone else do it and that is a sign maybe it should be done

my fert guy has a giant mole on top of most of his trucks now. he started with one, but he said the number of calls he got from the first one, made him turn around and buy one for them all.

That is awesome! Do you think he might have a picture of it online so we could see it?

no, I checked. He has molebusters in his name, and put it on last year I think. He said the drivers fought over who HAD to drive it. Now they are seeing the value and are happy to drive them. I dont believe they cost alot. couple hundred I think he said. Ever see a NAPA truck driving down the road only because the baseball cap?
