Ok guys, go ahead and throw the stones. I know I've posted about this before, but I need even more info. Just need some ideas before the old brain melts down. I am trying to decide on another truck. Right now, I use a V-6 powered Dodge Dakota. A wonderful truck, but not for landscape work. I haul a 6X14 single axle open trailer. Need to upgrade to a 6X16 or 18 enclosed though. I need a truck that can pull a trailer loaded w/2 Dixie Choppers, one with a Trac Vac on it, a push mower, and the usual other hand tools. It will have to be the only vehicle, since I'm only a one man show for now, maybe one or two employees during the summer. Anyway, I also need it to carry a 200 gallon spray tank when I need to. It will have to be able to carry a large (10yds)load of mulch at times. I get so tired of carrying 2yds across town, spreading it, having to go back across town for 2 more, etc. About half of the residential yards I do get bagged, so I need a place to carry clippings and other debris as needed. It's so frustrating to have to tell Mrs. Customer that, "I'm sorry, my truck is full, I'll have to come back in a day or so and get these limbs and stuff from your yard". Again, tired of having to go twice a day to dump stuff. In the fall, that wonderful leaf season, I need to be able to carry a very large volume of leaves at one time. Again, the same old story of having to go back and forth several times a day to my dumpsite. Would be so nice to be able to work a couple of days at a time, then just go dump the whole thing on Friday evenings. Obviously, a 12' dumping stake body mounted on a ???. I've looked at the Ford, Chevy, and Dodge 1 tons. I've looked at the GMC/Isuzu cab overs. And just about everything else in between. What I "THINK" would be perfect is this............a 2001 GMC W-4500 (14,500 gvwr) 4 cylinder diesel (175 hp and 347 ft lbs torque) with the Reading REV PAC (large tool box sitting direcly behind the cab to carry the trimmers, chain saw, fuel cans, hedge clippers, etc). Then behind that, have a 12 dumping stake body complete with roll up tarp system on top. I would then use it to haul a 6X16 or 18 enclosed trailer, with the mowers inside. I wouldn't have to unload ever again!!!!!!!!!! Everything would be out of the weather, I'd always have every tool on the job. What a pain to have to dig up a sprinkler head, and you "forgot" to load a shovel! Anyway, I'd be able to have everything with me at all times, plus a traveling dumpster to put WHATEVER in. What do you think. Would the cab over be the best choice? What about a conventional 1 ton? Any of you guys own the cab overs and tow with them? Any other ideas before I have to dose up on valium, tequila, rum, bourbon, and demeral all at the same time just to get by. Thanks in advance for any replies.
