Anyone on here have rolloff or hook trucks?
Yes I agree that a used truck for this purpose is the answer. Buying a new truck and putting a lift on it is basically out of the question. Plus with having to buy boxes and other bodies it would not make sense to buy a new truck. I've seen a few tandems for 30-40k that looked nice, but halfways across the country...
I do think though that for this purpose a tandem is going to be better. You can't put a 30-40 yard container on a small truck like that. Right now they have a 30 yard container and it would be nice to have that capacity or even more.
