Ok guys, I need help figuring out what I NEED. Here's my current setup.

4x7 open trailer
21" Toro Recycler
Stihl FS40
Stihl BR200

I pull it with my Jeep right now, and it really sucks towing even this small load, plus I have nowhere to easily throw debris. I plan to move up to a 5x10 trailer soon, and ill be buying a grandstand in the future as well as a spare trimmer and blower. Think I could get by with a 1/4 ton truck like a Ranger or Canyon?

The trucks you listed will probably do the job just fine but eventually you will want a 1/2 ton or larger. Do plenty of research so you get the right truck. Some are more reliable than others. Have been personally looking for a small truck for one of our daughters. while the gas mileage is a bit better they are not all that much cheaper than 1/2 tons.

Good luck on your search!

Thanks for the reply! Yeah I'm definitely noticing that the pricing is marginally better, if at all.

I work out of a Dakota payload is not much lower then a half ton but mpgs aren't much better either. That being said I love it I'll drive it till it drops
