Ive never seen that either. I saw a brickman tree truck on the road this past weekend with a brand new f750. Prob a 100k dollar rig. Pulling a brand new band it chipper.


The truck from arizona can be shipped for pretty cheap. Or just fly out and drive it back.

I just thought if you were going to get another truck anyways, it should be a dump. Another pick up would just be a waste of money imo if you are getting the work that you have been getting.

Well got my qoutes today for the 2012 Walker GHS w/ 20hp kubota diesel. 48" deck: $15,567. 52" Deck: $15,667. Both prices are out the door. The 2011 Scag 61" turf tiger w/ 35hp gas is looking really good for $9,999. Lol

lol. dont you just love makeing these decisions. lol...personally id go with the tiger, its power is unreal for a gas engine and the cut quality is stunning.....whichever you get just make sure its DFI, we have a 60in/25hp exmark witch uses more gas than the bigger 29hp kawi in the tiger!! lol....the only other model id go for would prob be the 28hp catipiller diesel engine
