    hey everyone, hope you are all cleanin up this season n makin that $$. well anyway recently a family friend decided to sell his 89 chevy mason dump thats in good shape with lots of new parts on it. i was wondering what kind of money i could make with it and how i would go about it. should i work for a company to haul their stuff or should i go out on my own and put an ad in the paper for hauling w/e ppl need hauled. im new to the idea but when my friend brought it up to me the gears started turning... what do you think i can do with a mason dump and what is the money like? thanks for any help you can give i appreciate it.

    Well I haul mulch and dirt with my F-350 dump, when its slow for my landscape supply guy. Its great for the little loads. He pays for my fuel and me $20 an hour. Its not much, just keeps me out of trouble. :D

    Theirs a guy around me who advertises that he specilizes in small loads. He does this with a one ton dump. I think you could make some money hauling for homeowners or contracters need less than what the local supply places will deliver.
