    Wouldn't be a bad idea to check into a bully dog or some kind of transmission tune. Remember that truck doesn't have an Allison. I've got an older bully dog unit for my half ton and it pulls my gooseneck without a glitch. Going with a half ton does a great job of keeping your gvwr down and vehicle enforcement off your back.

    Layin Stripes- I dont plan on pulling anything more than a 7x16 landscape trailer. Depending on the things work out if i need to pull something larger i have been looking at getting a used F-450 or 550 dump if we have the work load to be able to pay for it. I know how much i have to make before i would invest in one but that wont be this year. I would like to save up the get a 450 or 550 and a Deere 323 at the same time and use it for hardscaping as well as other projects. Thanks for the advice though

    Z's- None of the kubota equipment is mine it is all the guy who i work for but both the ZD331's and the M7040 are awesome machines. I would love to run a ZD series mower but just dont see the need for it for me just doing strictly residential this year. When i ran them we only had commercial accounts and those machines took a beating and kept on going. If i ever had some tough accounts a kubota zero turn diesel would be the first machine id buy and plus i gotta good deal on a exmark lazer. As far as the M7040 goes i prefer them over any tractor in its class. I used to be diehard john deere in all tractors but after using this machine i like larger kubota tractors(anything with a gear drive type trans) over john deere. Hopefully within the next year or so i can purchase 1 or 2 and use them for large accounts around me and snow removal in the fall. I know Terra Lawns has 2 and he loves them as well.

    Nice chevy! How do you like having a black truck? I had black trucks for years, and decided to go with white - easier to keep clean. Nice pics!

    It is a bit hard to keep clean but overall a nice truck. In the future once i start making some money i would like to switch over the Forest Green trucks with white lettering

    Sounds like a really nice color scheme, and like it would look good on a fleet of trucks.
