    Was hard to decide between F550 and cabover. But this is a great truck. 10 yards of mulch or 6 yards of loam, can dump with no problem.

    yeah that's a super fantastic truck...what is the wheel base? how much did you pay for it?...that really is a hard decision having to choose between those two but i think you made the right decision...the only thing a 550 would have over that dump is an option for 4 wheel drive...the turning radius is crazy in those cabovers, especially one with that short of a wheel base!

    Those trucks are great! I used to drive a Mitsubishi cabover 4wd diesel. It was kinda slow but would keep going full of soil mulch w.e we put in the back, and had a 9foot fisher blade on it.

    i wasn't saying you can't get a cabover with 4x4, i was saying THAT one wasn't 4x4...isuzu doesn't make a 4x4, but the mitsu-fuso does...unfortunately most of the fuso's are manual transmissions, they came out with an automatic again in '11 though, previously they only sold auto 4x4's for about 2 years, i believe the manual was more popular, probably for more power being a 4 cylinder and all...
