I pull a 14' open trailer loaded with a 52" ZTR, blowers, trimmers, tools, toolbox, gas cans, wheelbarrow, aerator(sometimes), etc, with a Toyota Tundra V8. It is smaller than an F150, but I have no problem at all. However, I would never put a load of anything heavy (like stone) directly in the bed of the truck. I also will not plow with it. I did once break a leaf in one leaf spring. But other than that no problems in three seasons of mowing, and now 97K miles. My neighbor swears by his much bigger and nicer F250 to do the same work. But I think he gets only about 10mpg, and I get about 15mpg pulling the trailer.
