    We run both hook lift and roll off. the 36" hook lift is the king of the landscape market i believe it is the single most versitile truck you can buy since just about everything can be setup to be a hook lift.

    i will tell you right now if you really want to make money with it get the highest GVWR truck you can, 26K and under is useless it is over weight all the time. we did that when we bought our new one luckily it was only register at 26 but we could reregister it for 33K which is perfect.

    the pic has the roll off with a 30yd can, i will tell you right now do some research on it before you commit to anything since it does cost a lot of money for cans.

    Thanks for the replies and insight guys. Nice looking trucks as well!

    I'm still trying to estimate what yearly operating costs would be. For in house use it would probably only have 10-15k miles put on because of the short haul distance from the yard to the scrapyards and recyclers. I think we would just go with a tandem or triaxle instead of a single because I feel like you'd eventually want to get a tandem/tri anyways.

    Any thoughts/help with the operating costs?

    see our roll off cannot tow the equipment trailer becasue the tounge is too short on the trailer and the rails stick off the back to far. it can only tow the dumpster trailer becasue that has a 6' tounge.

    ours is a ISX15 525hp with 10 speed with galbreath 75000lb hoist and autotarp. stickered for 86000lb but register at 73500lb has like 385K on it
