    I finally got it. The truck is amazing. Handles great and is a workhorse. Should have done it years ago.

    Sure...Its a 2003 Mits. FESP. 14500 GVW, 12' Reading Landscape Body. AC/PW.PL/CD/Block Heater/Heated Mirrors. Around 8000lbs capacity/14 Cu/Yards. Previous to this I was running 2 F150's, one was a rack dump, so you can imagine the difference.

    Thanks Ken.

    That looks awesome. What did that cost? Do you think you will be able to tow a trailer with it?

    Thanks. It was 38000.00 out the door. I had it outfitted with a combo ball/pintle hitch so it will be ready to go. Right now I have a dedicated trailer truck, so this will be used for mulch/cleanups/leaves/fertilizing.

    Yes...its an electric dump. The truck is a diesel, with an Alison trainy.

    Is it a 4X4?? I have heard those are pretty good for plowing, they can turn on a dime. Seems like it would be good in a tight spot. Looks good, I like it.

    LB--I have the 2WD. I never got into plowing. I think the FG is 4WD. I have a
    Honda minivan and a Subaru Outback. This truck outturns them both.
