I am in the market for a new used (a year or two old) truck and I am stuck between getting a half-ton truck and a ¾ ton truck. I already have a 1 ton dump truck, (a Chevy 3500) for towing my bobcat so I dont need anything bigger than a ¾ ton truck. I will mostly be towing a 6x12 enclosed trailer(mowing, a ztr and wb), but I have to admit, I like the idea of being able to tow my bobcat around with out having to use a dump truck is a nice thought. Anyways, would there be much difference towing a 6x12 with a ½ vs. a ¾ ton truck? And would it be possible to tow a 5,000lb bobcat(standard 14ft equipment trailer) with a ¾ ton truck? Also how much of a price increase would it be to upgrade from a ½ to a ¾ ton truck., I am able to buy the truck at wholesale through a family member. Which truck do you think best suits my needs? Thanks in advance for your help.
