    As you well know, im starting a maintenance company, but I only use a 21" Toro with 2 weed whackers and a backpack blower.

    Just to put it out of the way before moving on, a 21" push mower is about standard up here the 36" etc are just to big and uneeded. It does not save enough time to justify the expense and at alot of houses it would be rendered useless.


    Im looking at spending 3,000$ on a truck, looking early 90's to mid 90's. I would prefer to stay away from diesel and stick with my GM's/Chevy's, but im just wondering what you guys think will be suffecient for my needs.

    I have heard of LCO's uses V6 Sonomas with a trailer or a 1/2 ton with the box sectioned off and gaurd rails so you can fill it with clipping to the top of the cab. But what would you guys do in my position and why?

    Thanks in advance
