Dump Truck

How many of you guys use a dump truck as your primary towing vehicle. Just crossed my mind and was wondering who did it and had good/bad experiences with it.

F-150 is my primary towing truck, use the dump for Fall clean-ups,
installs, stone work etc.

We use a cube van for mowing and have a 3/4 Ford and a 1 ton Chev each with dump boxes. We use whichever will work best for the day. I also have a variety of trailers if we need them.

F-350 superduty with a flatbed dump. We ramp up to dump clippings and push a button at the end of the is good. I had test driven some f-450 with real dump bodies. They seemed a little more cumbersome but I'll bet a guy would get used to them pretty quick.
