    Good choice with the Chevy. I like the white truck with the red trailer. They look really good together.

    Thanks guys. Im glad I went with the Chevy. I am going to save alot on my monthly gas bill. Im figuring about 55.00-65.00 a week. Adds up over time!

    What kind of gas mileage do you get? How does it tow that load?

    1-44" Toro ZTR
    3-21" Toro Commercial Mowers (2 on truck 1 in garage for backup)


    I use to run a 32" midsize walkbehind but didnt like it as well as the 21". I sold it.

    I was getting an average of about 5.85 mpg. It actually tows the load very well.

    No I mean in the new truck. How does the new truck tow the load you have in the pics & what gas mileage?

    It tows it well. I just received the truck today so I dont have any numbers yet. I did tow my equipment with my Suburban and was getting like 12-14 or 15 mpg. I figure I should get the same in this truck.
