I have been reading through the threads on this subject and wanted to get opinions that pertain to my current setup. most of the posts I have seen also talk about buying brand new or having to take a loan out for the truck. I m currently looking at a 92 f350 7.3l dump that is diesel and automatic. unsure if it is 4x4 but I should know today. it currently has right at 220k for mileage and is tagged for farm use. truck looks fair to good in the pictures minus a tear on the seat but that is a simple seat cover. the post says they just used it to haul 2 tons of stone less than a week from the date of posting. the truck is listed right at $3200 or 2019 Hawke 6X10 7K Dump trailer new from the dealer that is just under $5k out the door. I currently have a crew of 1-3 depending on if landscaping or mowing. a 08 Silverado 1500 lt crew cab short bed and it pulls my 5x15 utility trail just fine but the trailer is a single axle and I am able to load 4 yards of mulch on there if the mulch is dry. I was given a leaf vac and built a box for the front of the trailer this past fall that worked well till I had to unload it. I need to get one of the two for mulching, leaf cleanups, grass clippings during spring flush, seed prep, landscape jobs, etc, etc. my current set up is not cutting it. if I go the dump trailer route I was told I should add an airbag set up to counter the squatting from the trailer loaded. the truck already has a brake controller set up. after giving the dealer my vin, I was told I can tow 6800 pounds with my 1500. I have $7500 set aside for this jump. I m looking for opinions and advice.
