I know that mit has a pretty nice body-over truck. You can get it in the 4 cylinder desiel with 4 wheel drive. Its a powerful truck and has a lot of weight capacity. Its also great for plowing. Last winter we got 4 feet of heavy snow and it was one of the only trucks that could push it besides a front end loader.

[QUOTE=DVS Hardscaper;1121717]If you're combo unit (truck and trailer) grosses over 26000#, even if your trailer only weights 3000#, you're still a combo unit, which requires you to have a minimum of a Class A CDL restricted license.

26000# and a trailer of any size is the breaking point. There is no "if this or if that"

But if you're grossing under 26,000# and if you're pullin a trailer that is factory rated at or OVER 10,000# .....you need a class A CDL! ]/QUOTE]

WrongO on all three counts.

This is an oldie but a goody.

Ford F350

I bought a 2012 Ford F350, FX4, dully, 6.7. I pull a 24' Enclosed trailer that has two Exmark Lazer Z and a Bad Boy in it and i am getting 14 mpg. I had a 2009 F350 that was getting around 8, but that was a 6.4. When i am not pulling this trailer i am getting 19 mpg. Ford with the new 6.7 is the way to go.
