F-650 Gas

Does anyone have an F-650 with a V-10? I am thinking about buying one and want some opinions from other owners or people who know somebody that owns one. Gas mileage is not an issue the truck will be driven around town and will not see much highway use. I want it with a regular cab and a 10' dump bed.

The truck will be used to haul a mini ex or skid steer to the job sites and stone/soil. It costs about $12,000 less than the highest horse power cummins at my local dealer. I believe the gearing is 6.30, how well does it tow with the v10, where I live it is very flat, not many hills.

We only drive the dumps about 15,000 miles per year so the truck rots away long before a diesel engine hits 200,000 so Im not looking for a truck I can put 400,000-500,000 miles on.

What do you guys think?
