    Hey guys. Here is a pic of our new-to-us dump truck, hauling our landscape trailer. Heading out for a day of mowing! I am also testing uploading a pic to my post

    Another pic, dumping after working all day. Much easier than shoveling, or pushing it out of the F250. Wish I had it earlier in the season, doing clean-ups, lawns, installs, excavating, etc.

    That sure is a nice back saver after I bought mine I kept thinking why didn't I do it before.

    Did you painted your truck or bought it in that color?

    I did painted my first truck almost the same color, kind of atracted peoples attention, now I feel a little bit silly with that color but my guys still using it, I get comments all the time about the color some good some bad, but I don't care.

    Here's mine 97 f-250

    The truck came almost freshly painted that color. It should be extremely high visibility at night when I am plowing with it. I used to spend an hour at the dump unloading my pick up trucks full of misc debris. I always wish I would make the investment to get a dump truck. Finally, and I am so glad I did it. I also think in the eyes of a customer you look more professional, and might be taken more seriously with this kind of truck. I am going to get lettering for it very soon. You are right, it does attract attention. Once I get the lettering, the extra attention will be great! Thanks for the comments, and thanks for responding...

    Nice truck. Don't forget to be careful when raising the bed while parked on an incline. I don't want to sound like your mother, but I had a friend that flipped one over bacwards like that one time.:eek:

    Sweet looking trucks!!! I like the color, especially on a commercial vehicle. Really catches a persons' attention.
