Hi folks. I'm looking at getting in to a small chassis truck. There is an old Ford Ranger diesel available that I am thinking about using for maintenance. I'll be hauling a 4 x 8 trailer with not too much equipment. I'll have a 34" walk behind, a 21" mower, trimmer, blower, hand tools and stuff, plus all the clippings I pick up in a day or two in the back of the truck. It's the 2.3L turbo diesel, 5 speed. What do you guys think. Yeah it's gutless, but I'm not trying to win any races with this thing. Currently, I drive a 1988 Ford F250 diesel. It seems like a little overkill to pull a few mowers and some hand tools with that much truck. Even when I do irrigation I usually have only a handfull of tools in the back and the supplies are not that heavy. Tell me what you think.
