    And if you can't understand that a truck is not what I am going for right now then I can't help you. A truck is in my plans, just not right now. It all comes with time..

    I'm considering selling my chipper and hauling more since I have places to take logs and recycle them for erosion control or firewood. If I cut the biggest logs out, my mulcher will handle the tops and all the brush but that probably wouldn't be as cost-effective as the chipper.

    Nothing wrong with paying cash however sometimes having that cash availble rather than tied up in a machine can be advantageous. 100 ways too spin and there is no "Only 1 right way" too do it. One thing we all will agree on is without equipment we cannot do the work so you have too find what works best for your situiation and regardless of planning no one can predict the future so when it takes a dump you need too be in a situation where you can get through it.

    F650 will haul about 7 tons and a F750 will haul about 10 tons with a dump bed. One will require a cdl. A flatbed dump is a really good truck for your plans. Sure a debris box is made for what you are talking about but less verasatile.
