    I too was looking at the low pro/444e trucks. The DT466 is leaps and bounds ahead in my book. All of our smaller trucks are automatics but I seem to like the manual in the medium duty units.

    My single axle is a DT 530 and thats slow when loaded. The 444 would be out of the running for me.

    Even as a low pro, day to day, move the skid, get a couple yards of sand or rca truck? We all know to really haul heavy you need a heavy truck

    The 444 is basically the 7.3 powerstroke. I couldn't imagine trying to haul around the weight of that truck, plus trailer, plus 7 ton excavator with a 7.3. But you do live in an area with minimal hills so you may feel it's okay. You won't be getting many speeding ticket that's for sure.

    I would try and find a 33K with an L-10 or M-11 with a 9 speed or maybe an auto if you can find one. More is almost always better, especially in this case.
