    I'm looking at a truck someone local has for sale here. It's an isuzu type tuck with a gmc badge and a 6cyl turbo engine with a 5 speed tranny. The plate on the engine says 175 HP @ 2600 rpm. 16 foot flatbed, 18000 gvwr My question is, does anybody have any experience with this model pulling a skidsteer? Is 175 hp enough? I know it's the torque that matters with a diesel, I'm just not finding alot of info on this. The guy is a mason bricklayer type guy who claims it's a pulling machine, but he's trying to sell me the truck also...
