Ask any landscaper what is their most important piece of equipment and the answer will probably be their truck – a workhorse on wheels. But keeping your truck organized and maximizing space can be a challenge, especially when you’re hauling around large pieces of equipment like mowers. Fortunately, there’s all kinds of equipment and accessories to keep your landscaping truck or van organized (and who couldn’t use more equipment, right?). Here are our top picks:
A sturdy truck trailer with a ramp will hands-down be one of the best investments you’ll ever make. It’s easier to load mowers, tillers, wheelbarrows and other large/heavy equipment onto a trailer than it is to get them on a pickup truck. Plus, you’ll free up your pickup bed for dirt, mulch, or stones.
Equipment racks are a must if you want to maximize space in your truck bed or trailer, and they come in a variety of configurations. Racks designed for shovels and rakes and other long-handled tools will keep them from rolling around in your truck bed, while racks for trimmers keep the fuel tanks level and allow for easy access. Upgrading to a backpack leaf blower? There’s a rack for that!
Truck Bed Box
Even though you’re in the landscaping business, you’ll always need to keep a set of regular tools on hand for building projects or equipment repair. A sturdy, lockable truck bed box will keep your tools handy, yet safe.
If your business provides weed-and-feed services, a truck-mounted sprayer make work faster and easier than ever before. Less time per job = more money for you!
For any landscape business that provides customers with dirt, mulch, gravel, or even plants, tarps are essential equipment. They’ll protect your cargo while keeping other drivers safe from debris that could fly off your truck during your commute. In some states, they’re required by law.
If you’re hauling chemical or fuel tanks to the job, keep them from toppling over and spilling with a tank rack. There are even specialized tank racks available for gas cans and propane tanks.
Water Cooler Rack
Forget bottled water. Landscapers know that water coolers are the way to go because they give you more water with less waste. One of our accessories is a rack that keeps water coolers upright in the bed of your truck or van. There are even swing-out models available that keep your cooler mounted upright over your truck bed during the commute, then swing out when you get to the jobsite so your crew can walk right up for an easy drink.
