.Haha, yeah it was a little weird to pull into the yard in a Chevy, running joke around the shop is that im having a midlife crisis. Got rid of all my John Deere mowers and went to Exmark! Plow this year for sure, we dont do any salting really. Ive got a reciever spreader for one truck, other than that no one around here salts, nor wants salt.

The motor in it, although a little thirsty, will have very good power and will run for a long time with very little problems. I had one in a one ton and it ran and ran for years.

Good to hear, this is the first Chevy that weve ever had so I guess we will see how it goes

Could you go into a little more detail on the schwans truck and your review on them/how you chose to outfit the truck? I've been looking into them on and off for the past year but still can't find a good source for them.

Very nice truck, I love the 8.1L power. That is pretty high milage though. Good luck with it.

Be careful of who is driving this beast if you are loaded to the max your driver had better have his CDL, because you could be over 26000 lbs. total. I know in my neck of the woods DOT has been going after the landscapers for this very thing.

Not to burst your bubble but it looks like the seller made out well.

He bought it for $7000.
