I've seen this question pop up regularly. I really think the guys who have the dump truck and dump trailer have the best thing going. To set a different tone to this I think my pickup truck is the most useless piece of equipment. Pickups for landscaping work, not lawn mowing, seem kind of useless. Dump trucks can haul more volume and dump stuff rather than shoveling it out of a pickup. I have a dump trailer and like the trailer for what it can hold compared to a 1 ton dump truck. If I can pick up a dump it's CDL time for me for hauling the dump trailer (14k), something to keep in mind. The trailer is cheaper and hopefully I can invest in a dump truck (450-550 type) some day when the work calls for it. I love my pickup and wont get rid of it but want a dump to replace it for working.
