When I was cutting grass, 1 ton SRW, it was a little excessive towing around 2 walkbehinds but its what I got when I was used truck shopping. I was looking for a 3/4ton optionless model. I couldn't find one that the seller was asking to much and such. The big selling point for me was the diesel, standard cab, long box. The diesel option for plowing snow, can run long on a tank of diesel vs. gas pushing snow, plus with just idling when doing sidewalks and such.

But now I'm out, I'm thinking of jumping back into just doing construction. So this will get me started.

Good thread to revive

1 - 7 yd dump
2 - 1 1/4 (one dump one pickup)
2 - 1 ton (one dump one flat)
1 - 3/4 ton

They all have their uses.
