But at the same time it's helpful moving your own material.

Yes deffinatly is cheaper with the smaller trucks and deliveries, I pay 198 a year registration on my 3500 truck and I can only haul alittle over a ton. With the work we do we are in need of a larger dump truck. I at this point wanted a 14000 pd dump trailor to haul more material and stone etc. That will help us out alittle more and cost alot less than buying a dump. I'm gonna be buying one towards fall for sure. But also if I would buy a dump truck, I don't even would waste my time buying anything under a 5500 or 550, because if I want to work off the tailgate I can use my dump inserts. But for volume and or tonage I rather just jump right into a Ford 650 or something similar so I can haul more volume. But still on the fence on any dump right now. Been taking baby steps for 11 years now, what the heck haha
