    When I picked up my 3500 I was seriously considering one of these for my personal truck. Had the chance to sit in one at the Landscape Ontario Congress finally and when my lease is up...I'm getting me one of these.

    yeah and what are you going to do with it...i mean if youre going to get a tuck that big make it a dump truck but if you want a personal truck get a 2500 or something thats a personal vehicle

    Those are badddd ass trucks. I plow with the same thing. Ive gotta 5500 4x4 with the Duramax 300hp/Allison. Ive been stuck one time, and that was cause I backed over my windrow that was about 5 foot high and wet slushy snow. I plow anything from large parking lots all the way down to windy hilly driveways. They are very stable. Only thing I dont like is the reverse speed. It is bouncing off the rev limiter at 11 miles and hour.

    I don't think you could see the plow from the drivers seat. Looks like a real curb banger to me.

    i looked into buying one of the f 750's, the 4x4 conversion alone was a mear $24,000......the trucks from the dealer don't cost too much, but the conversion is very expensive... be ready to shell out $100k

    80k wouldn't be too bad especially if it was powered by cat. considering that a full size f-350, international diesel, crew cab, 4x4 will set you back 42k

    I hardly needed a Crew Cab Dually with leather as a work truck either. With me its all about the want not the need. I want one, don't need one and the cost difference between on of those and what I have now is negligable. I was looking at getting something I couldn't use for work....like an Escalade or something but I re-thought it.....everyone has an Escalade, not everyone has one of those.

    Oh, the Ford 650's are nice too but at a base price of $95,000 a lil out of my price range.
