Lots of creativity here and i like that. I started off this way, not bad at all. I will say its definitely only temporary but we all gotta start somewhere.

You're right. No one needs loans coming out there ears right away, or every if done correctly. Besides, I've already got that from college haha

I went to a isuzu with the landscape bed. Last year was my first full year with the landscape truck. I will never go back to pulling a trailer. I think anyone that tried the landscape truck would ditch the trailer.

What's the average MPG on something like that?

About 10 I was getting around 12 with my f150 and a trailer. My route is pretty tight so not a real big deal.

I don't know if I could ever switch over to using a landscape truck. I'm sure its nice and convenient in a ton of ways but, I think I just like my truck way too much, and don't mind pulling a trailer at all really. Is anyone else like that?

Not knocking anyone at all. Just my experience from using both. Much less hassle more compact and much easier to turn around.
Everything has pros and cons.

Starting out in the early 90s I had a two door 82 Carolla and hauled a 100 pound commercial 21" Snapper in the trunk. Then in 94 I got from my moms dead uncle a Wheel Horse 252-H with a 37" deck. The deck fit between the fenderwells of a Mazda B2000 I had just bought. I bolted cedar ramps to the tailgate with hardware hinges. Then I got a Toro 117 Groundsmaster with a 44" deck. Backed in the deck fit between the sides of the bed but the tailgate had to be down. I then got longbed F150s and the Toro 117 fit in fine backwards no matter if it had a 44" or 52" deck on it. If you rent where you live there can be limitations like I have to not have a trailer.

Who cut's with just a pickup truck?

When I read the subject line, "who cuts with just a pickup truck", I pictured an old ford pickup with a belly mower mounted underneath it.
