    I hear ya, but I will never buy a truck over 26,000 - 33,000 pounds.

    The bulk of our work is in the DC / Northern VA area. That area is infested with dirt haulers. Most of them driving old, beat up trucks, and they haul for cheap. It's far cheaper to pay them.

    Total different world in that market.

    Now the top soil - thats a company that processes soil, sells, and delivers. The owner doesnt like to tell anyone "NO". He is so busy and thats why he cant make his deliveries on time. I really like the guy. But we cant sit around all morning and wait for his soil to get there.
