I towed my trailer empty today (just 5 miles from where I store it to my house) and it already tows much better than the 6.5. I'm excited to see how it tows the mower and fully loaded trailer over the next couple days.
Congrats on the new truck it looks great! I have had great luck with the Chevy 6.0L, I have four of them ranging from a 1999-2008. The 99 has 365,000 miles and its still on the original drive train. They have plenty of power for a maintenace truck, it will pull your mower just fine we tow 20' enclosed trailers behind ours with no problem.
