I just find myself picking up a few extra plants every once in a while that I might have forgot to add to a delivery. And it is really nice having a stocked irrigation truck, when checking on an install crew or service crew. Plus, I tend to move equipment around once or twice a month...

What is that new F150 with the turbo V6 motor getting? The perfect answer is really a toyota tacoma style truck with a diesel motor.
One of the spray companies I network with uses a Prius as an estimate/personal vehicle. Smart move IMO. I'd be laughing all the way to the bank since I'm getting all that great gas mileage. If I didn't have my truck for work use, I would own a Prius in a heartbeat.
