The 7.3 is a very reliable engine. When I hear "Powerstroke" I think 7.3.
Unless you're hauling 2 ZTRs and a couple of walk behind mowers there really is no need for a 3/4 ton or 1 ton. Say you use a dump trailer or a gooseneck flatbed then yes it would wise.
For a small operator a half ton long box is a great platform. A ranger or Colorado, Frontier or Tacoma whatever compact for a couple for a strictlty mowing operation is dandy.
