It looks like a tandem axle dump isn't "Penciling out"

A little frustrating it looks like I will prolly be staying small scale. I started looking into the operating costs and payments etc. And getting feed back from other contractors its not so rosey as I thought it would be. Supposidly the price of tires have gone up would be looking at 4300 dollars a year in tires alone.

So I prolly be looking at a used F-550 4x4 it has a decent payload it will go where most big trucks can't. When you pencil out the figures a F-550 wouldn't be making the same amount of money as a tandem axle its far far cheaper to run.
