I love my Colorado, it is the best pickup ive ever owned. It has a I-5 3.7L Vortec motor, which is chevys notable 5 cylinder motor. The towing capacity is around 4,000lbs. Its pretty good on gas, i can get 15-17MPG pulling my trailer. Without the trailer i can get around 20MPG. These trucks can pull quite a load, ive went up steep gravel roads pulling the Grasshopper(which is around 1,000lbs itself) with no trouble at all and mines only 2WD. The 4WD Colorado's can really climb!

Thanks Banjo! I don't plan on towing more then 3,000 pounds, so it sounds like a good option.

Bought a new Stihl FS-70 RC-E. I absolutly LOVE it! It has just as much power as my bigger trimmers and feels like its 8lbs. Here it is with all the rest of my trimmers. i don't think i have enough weedeaters

From left to right

FS-55, FS-45 i converted to a straight shaft, FS-90, FS-90R, FS-70 RC-E, and Echo SRM-210.
