F150 vs 1500 vs older 2500

I'm thinking of buying a new truck and am undecided between the three. I can afford a 2013 half ton truck or a 5 year old 3/4 ton truck.

When doing moderate landscape installs, can I get by with a half ton? I know with a 3.73 axle, I can pull 9400lbs with the new F150s. But a 3/4 ton is just tougher all around but buying a used one is definitely risky too.
