    Any guys on here know these trucks good.
    I have an offer on the table.
    I offered to trade my 10' dump trailer for the truck.
    Is it worth it.
    it a 1993 fuso
    4 banger diesel, turbo.
    12' dump bed
    140000 miles. manual trans

    I have to trade a
    2006 Ezdumper 10' x 6' dump trailer
    dual axle, electric dump.

    Think its a fair trade i posted a pic of the truck
    any info on these trucks would be good.
    I want this type of truck, but not sure.
    Deal or No deal on my part.

    We have an 02 fuso with landscape body. It has almost 300,000 miles on it and is solid.
    Pros-You will gain more capacity for leaves,mulch,etc.
    great mileage, (we get about 15mpgs)
    Can pull a trailer and equipment with you on those cleanups etc.
    turning radius is awesome/ could plow with it.
    Cons-Another truck to insure, maintain, and repair.
    Sounds like a good deal, good luck!

    Parts wear out from "old age". Mitsi parts are costly. Most must come from Mitsi dealer.
