    Was out working today and though I should take a couple of pictures of the truck. How many of you guys use this type of truck?

    I ran trucks and trailers for years but when I bought this a couple of years ago. I would never go back to a trailer. These things turn on a dime, will pull anything and get great mileage. This one is a diesel. It has a slot in the dash to hold business cards and a little console in between the seat to hold clipboards ect. It's like a mobile office.

    Hey exmarkking. I see your rig all the time around town. I used to have an Isuzu landscape truck similar to that and I do miss it. It did turn on a dime but for some reason the brakes were terrible on it.

    this one is a Mitsubishi fuso and it stops great. It actually has four calipers on the front brakes. Brakes are expensive to replace though :)
