Hey Matt

Check out the for sale forums, a guy down by me that I know, is selling his international. I couldnt tell you the specs. exactly but its in the forums, its a low profile, removable sides, nice truck, and its in your price range and with the money left over you can buy a trailer for your machines. I think it would be perfect for you. Perfect for planting jobs, the low bed makes loading and unloading very easy but with the diesel engine its a beast. Check it out.

Jeff

Nevermind what body you want to put on it. I don't think any of those trucks are gonna pull 21k lbs. worth of equipment and trailer. Especially around the hills of sussex county. That only leaves you with 4k for the truck itself.

How big of a truck do you think i will need to tow 17k worth of equipment? I think that will be the deciding factor on what i buy. I really don't like towing the skid steer with my 3/4 ton.

After all the rain we got, and the rain were expecting its almost make me want to close up shop. I am just so agervated.

You'll probably need a truck close to 40k gvw. My Int. 4700 has a gvw of 17500 and weighs 11,340 lbs.

I was looking at the swap loader site posted...........whats the point? Are you buying 2 beds for 1 truck? I see taking the bed off and pulling a machine on and then putting hte bed back on the truck but other than that, well I don't get it. I just keep thinking of a roll off dumpster truck.

the hooklift you mean?

a dump box,a flat bed,maybe a hydroseeder set up,a small enclosed box for tools,all with one truck instead of tons of trailers or other trucks,i'm seriously pondering the idea myself,just no money and time to retro fit the beds at this time.
