    Yesir it is! i tried it out today and it cuts like a knife through butter. The 5x8 does its job, i really only use that to move equipment around on and i borrow my buddies 6x12 with 4ft sides for debris and to mount my leaf vac on

    The truck gets pretty good mpg. I dont know exactly how much per gallon but i drove it about 2-300 miles a week during winter and filled up once a week. With the trailer is a different story, because its only a 5 cylinder it struggles a little bit pulling my mower so after 3 days in a row of pulling the mower it would be close to empty
