    Thats what I was thinking 43000? Nice looking truck but would be scared to use it as a work truck. For us left behind, metric challanged how much is 3000kg.

    3000 kilograms is equal to 6,613.87 pounds.

    Check out this site, it's VERY handy for any conversion you may ever need... http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/conversions.html

    That is a cool looking "truck" I wouldn't want to risk getting it dirty, or worse yet the dings in the bumper from attempts to hook up the trailer! Unless you are really really good, lol.

    You use a spanking new 2006 truck to do lawn service? What about ding and dent in 2 days? Holly gohst, depreciation is killing me right after I hitted return key.
    Just kidding, please enjoy. It just not my style of running business using spanking new truck to do lawn care.

    Good points guys!

    the 'car' on road is worth 52k.

    it doubles as the family car on weekends and work ute through the week.

    my toyota landcruiser was getting very tired, and nissan were the only ones willing to deal, changer price is 36k with a 35% residual.

    plus, with the ute I get tax back (gst) of 10% of the purchase price plus fuel tax benefits, this is the most powerful dual cab ute in this country except for the 80k plus fords that are too big.

    it is a turbo diesel, auto tranny.

    We have this on a 5 year lease.

    Mick, the secret? Big debt! lol.

    anyway, the pics don't do it justice, this ute is a beauty, I can't find a single fault.

    talking faults n stuff....my new replacement deere was meant to be here thursday, and delivered friday.....surprise, surprise......no mower, no one knows anything, least they are consistant, stuffing me around is their thrill for the day lol.
