    I am thinking about trying to find a good small dump truck for my business. I am thinking something with like a 9yd bed, single axle. I would rather it be diesel and automatic but....... I am wanting something to use for landscaping and put a snow plow on it to use in the winter. Any suggestions as to what I should look for? I want something bigger than my one tons but under cdl and not way underpowered.

    4x4 Mitsubishi fuso dump truck. I've been doing a lot of reading up on the cabover trucks lately and they seem to have a much large payload capacity and be decent on fuel.

    Chevy 5500 with a 12' landscape bed, or a international 4300 with a 12' landscape bed.
