    Wow, no hate here, that is a beautiful truck!!

    I want one without the dump, we don't bag and we don't plow.

    I can't see spending the money either, but then again BrandonV has got one HELL of a business. He probably can't even think of enough ways to spend all the money they are making! Very nice truck.

    Now lets some pics of the dump so I can copy it!!

    They're really not that bad when compared to a f450 and a trailer that and I expect this truck to be around 15-20 years and you have much longer to depreciate it.

    Yeah it probably will be around that long. I bought a used super lawn truck earlier this year, but I sold it for a nice profit. I really like your dovetail box with the one piece ramp. That thing has got to be twice as fast as the two-piece ramps.

    I really like that debris dumper, my guys spend 30 minutes cleaning out their box trucks every morning so I bet that is a real time saver.

    I guess the way I look at the money thing is how long it will take to get a return on the investment. If a crew's yearly profit is 65k, that is along time just to get roi on a truck.
