In 2013 we did buy 2 GMC 3500 dumps...2011 & 2012. They have been treating us well. I am just not a fan of the DEF systems in them.
DEF is a pain. We have 3 Dmax 03, 04, 07. I snuck the last one in just before the switch. I gotta say, I love the Allison tranny but the 6 speed is much nicer then previous models. The terrastar runs the same trans and 3 cab options.

Since I guess your down to 3 of the smaller chassis straight cab dumps, what has filled the gap on the newer ford that got the boot.
Us GM fans need to keep our fingers crossed for 2016/17 model year for a medium duty truck. The dodge 4500/5500 are so expensive that for a few more $$ you could get a REAL medium duty and have it run to 600k miles

Impressive operation. I bet hydroseeding from the barge was pretty neat

Any plans of going to a hooklift or rolloff truck for dumpsters and put the hydroseeder and mulch blower on flat bed bodies? Eliminates a few extra trucks running around, regustration and maintenance etc. unless they all roll out every day

Curious, if you guys still prefer to use the skid steer for fall clean ups? Thanks.
