My guess would be the gas vs. diesel comparison for GVW's, it really becomes more noticeable on the 3500's. The 2500 will probably have to do for the spring, but we're trying to come up with a reliable, cheap resolution to the problem. We've talked about finding an old single axle L or F series Ford, they're always at the top of our list. Maybe swapping out beds on our 550 dump for one of those goosneck beds that dumps. Any suggestions? As pictured the ex is over height, so I have to tuck the boom in. But I cannot curl the mower over like a bucket. I ended up setting the mower on the first angle on the backside of the mower. It's the only way that I can trailer it with the boom forward and be under height.
