Benz 4x4 landscape truck (trailer pics added)

Postby sneff on Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:22 am

I thought I'd post some pics of my landscape/plow truck I've been working on. I'm putting the final details on now but I still have a few things to finish.
The plow is fully functional and was built by FGD.

I recently made the pallet, mulch bags, and ratchet binders.
A few more details and I should be ready for Indy.

And yes the cooler does have beer and wine in it!! lol

Thanx for taking a look.

Favorite Truck: Knight Hauler- 3 of them
Current Projects: Finishing 2 of my Knight Haulers, 2 new van trailers awaiting being built into 28' scale pups, and also construction of 2 dollies on deck.
Fleet: Right now my operational fleet consists of one Knight Hauler, and 2 custom scale 48' flatbeds. One trailer is a tandem, the other is a spread. Both are polished, with wood decks and the spread is set up with a wireless lighting system and Alcoa replica super singles. The Knight has the light kit, as well as many extra LED's installed. I also have a slightly modified Tamiya van trailer. I also own a Toyota Tundra, stock except for aluminum wheels and S/S hardware.
