View Full Version : What kind of mileage do you put on your truck in a year?

I am a one man operation. I usually put about 2,000 miles a year, a tight route, on my truck. I was wondering how many miles you guys drive a year in yours.

4,200 all mowing miles. Usually run over 25 circle's year.

Spending just under $3,000 in total full expenses. Not including the 10 tires also bought last year.

17,000 mi...... yup

I did about 10,000 last year, but I was also driving to school 3 days a week and that was a 40 mile round trip. I would say under 8,000 maybe even a little less. I don't go far haha

I drive about 15,000 miles a year between work and personal use. For just mowing, I'm at 2500 miles or so (I don't travel too far).

03-29-2011, 07:36 PM
Usually about 10-15k on the personal truck (previously work truck)

Let me put it this way, I drove 100,000 miles in 3 years. That's mowing, spraying, and installs. I think I spend more time in the truck then anywhere else!

I do about 10k a season for lawncare

I drive 50,000 a year , easy. Between installs, maintenance, irrigation service calls, and estimates, I stay on the road constantly. My dodge has 162,000 after 3 years, my Mitsubishi Fuso has 212,000 miles, 160,000 of those in the past 2 years. We only drive within a 20-25 mile radius, but drive it frequently
