Anyone using these trucks to haul around their mowing equipment? I am thinking about getting an left over 06 or a 07 ext cab xlt 4x4 to pull around my 18ft trailer and a Dixie chopper. I used a 2006 same truck as above Tuesday and it hauled pretty good. I used it from 10am till 5pm that day and it did pretty good on gas. I am still trowing around the idea about getting a diesel (7.3 power stroke) or a new F-150. How much weight can these f-150 actually tow? I am think about getting a dump truck in the spring to do a mulch jobs so I can fill the trailer up and drop it off with a couple of guys and take the truck and do the mowing side so I don't have to worry about my guys goofing off and leaving the job site. How big of dump trailer could I tow with this? And how many yards can I put in the dump trailer while towing with the new F-150? And as for plowing I am going sno-way no matter what if I get the 250 power stroke or the 150 cause of dealer support. So the plows are going to be light. I can get a 99 black ford f-250 xlt ext cab 8ft bed with the 7.3 diesel for 14,000 is this a good deal? Should I get it?
