    I love when I see guys rocking these trucks. I know the isuzu's are nice, but Ive never used the one with the trailer on it. What do you do if you have any debris at a site? Otherwise, thats sweet truck man

    There's almost too many different ways to roll. Cab over open, cab over enclosed, trailer open, trailer enclosed, full size truck w\utility bed, and even compact trucks are running around with utility beds.

    It nice to be able to keep your stuff out of the rain and hot sun but enclosed trailers and trucks are easy to damage and cost a lot to fix.

    Going Diesel was a great choice. Sunterra here in Austin bought a bunch of gassers and they are under powered from what the drivers told me. All this doom and gloom about the new Diesels is over hyped and the majority of the time it's from people who have little or no oil burner experience.

    I have a dump trailer for doing clean up work I tow it with my 2008 1 ton dually with flat bed it has a blizzard plow on it I figured I better keep my other truck since no way Isuzu would push snow 3rd year in business looking to change my equipment soon phase out some of my machines with alot of hours thinking about going to all Hustler Trimstars in various deck sizes or going to some sort of stander mower to conserve pace. Love the trimstars not sure how I would like being on a sulky alot of companys in my area use nothing but walk-behinds

    Those trucks are awesome. If you don't mind me asking what did you pay for it? I priced a reg cab diesel with a landscape body a couple months ago and about fell over when I heard a price lol.
