    Like the title says I am in need of a truck for this fall. I don't care what manufacture, just as long as it is a 3/4 or 1 ton. But the reason I started this thread was to ask what you guys thought about this truck- I would only be using it for this fall (leaves and clean-ups) and then get rid of it in the spring or even during winter. Maybe keep it through the spring mulch rush to make scheduling easier (no waiting for deliveries). It is from a local landscaper (some of you around cary might know Tomasello's?) and looks to me like it has at least 3 months of life left in it if not more. How many of you beg to differ?

    BTW he is asking $7800 but I would love to see this at $5000.. but who knows.
    Also yes, I do realize it is an SRW but for fall debris I think it would be fine.

    And yes I realize that I am asking this on plowsite, and I am doing that because I might end up plowing some with it (probably just my driveway).
