Look into a small cabover truck like a an Izusu NPR. I have a Chevy W-4 (it's the same). What I like about them is that they have a very small turning radius, a lot larger payload, and the bed is a lot larger than a 1 ton dually. Mine has a 18 foot custom made bed and is low to the ground. I went with a gas engine (350 vortec) but a diesel is available. The main reason I got this truck is because it was less expensive even with custom bed than any pickup. I like the truck a lot. I put a 60 inch toolbox under the bed and it is lockable. The top of the rear deck is only 42 inches high. I designed a side like a tailgate that can be unlatchedocked from anywhere on the side of the truck. This is really handy. It will easily handle 3 tons of fertilizer, a dual axle 10,000 lbs trailer and John deere 4400 Tractor. All of this and it drives like it is empty. If you need to push snow, think about a Mitsubishi Fuso, they make a 4wd cabover. Hope this contributes.
