He says it ran a little under $30K. You can get one of these Freightilners for $12K.

I saw that ebay site, it was a 1999 truck, Phil got his brand new already rigged for lawncare work for 30K. I am sure that used, you can get the Isuzu cheaper than the Freightliner.

I'll couch for the feeightliners. We had a 97 fl60 for many years and they're a pleasure to drive we had set up as a dump truck but steering and visibility it is better than many smaller trucks. I must omit though that a cabover would be the more logical setup for a mowing crew. The fl trucks would be acceptable if you're hailing a good amount if equipment though like 3+ riders
