Good choice with the Chevy. I like the white truck with the red trailer. They look really good together.

What kind of gas mileage do you get? How does it tow that load?

1-44" Toro ZTR
3-21" Toro Commercial Mowers (2 on truck 1 in garage for backup)


I use to run a 32" midsize walkbehind but didnt like it as well as the 21". I sold it.

I was getting an average of about 5.85 mpg. It actually tows the load very well.

No I mean in the new truck. How does the new truck tow the load you have in the pics & what gas mileage?

It tows it well. I just received the truck today so I dont have any numbers yet. I did tow my equipment with my Suburban and was getting like 12-14 or 15 mpg. I figure I should get the same in this truck.

If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for the 6x10? Does it have brakes on the axle? If not would you prefer one? I am starting to look for a bigger trailer so I am going to being asking questions. Thanks
