The truck is a 2011 Chevy 3500 6.0 gas with aluminum dump body. It replaced an 08 Chevy 3500 diesel dump aka.... the turbo eater.

If you buy the whole set up new... Trailer, Mixer, Sod cutter, Curb Machine, and a basic stamp package you will be over $28k, I picked this set up used at fire sale pricing.

Yeah, that's what you need if it's a work truck.

Over the past 2 years the concrete work has really taken off. I used to sub it all out than realized one day I could keep a crew busy with it 5 or 6 days a week. I already had all the big ticket items needed ie.. skid steer, dump truck, mini x, etc.. Only had to buy a few pins and some other speciality tools to get the guys going. For me it was a no brainer to jump into it.

That's cool man, and I know a lot of customers like it if it's an all in one company where you can do the landscaping and all the cement work also or vice versa.
