    HAHHAHAHHAH

    Not sure if you are smoking dope or something. But $12,000 isn't going to get you all that stuff that isn't beat to death or really old. You really need to look trying come up with a bigger budget. More along the lines of $20,000 or more. Remember its all about proffesional image. So you can't have old beat up equipment.

    But I paid $29,000 in june for a 1999 F-350 dump with 11,000 miles with central hydro, plow and spreader.

    There is a guy on here that is trying to sell his 1999 F-450 dump with 9' fisher for $22,000.

    Hey Tom the company i work for has a 1990 F-350 4x4 dump with a 9 foot western and an 8.1L (i believe) gasser in it. Real strong truck..i've pulled 9,000 pounds with it no sweat before. I know they were trying to sell it for awhile but dont know if they sold it yet. Its not in the best of shape...steering vibrates everynow and then, but its a real good starter truck. I can email my boss and see if he's still got it for sale if you want.

    I have been just doing driveways and mowing par-time since I was 13 with about 13 properties. This year I decided to going full time. I started out with just some of my mowing equipment and kubota tractor from last year. So in my 1st full time season I was able to buy a dump, enclosed trailer, skid loader and a bunch of other junk from just the profit from this year doing landscaping because it didn't even snow enough to pay for the new protech, cab, plow, and blower for my kubota.

    Either your not charging enough for each job or have poor money management skills or no business plan or no/poor credit.

    I would really like you to show me where you can buy a 4x4 F-550 for $15,000. Cause I know guys would line up and around the block to buy them for that price.

    If anything take that $15,000 and use it as a down payment for a dump truck. Then get a loan for another $15,000. Which is what I did. This was the first time I ever got a loan by myself. The guy at the dealership total me there was no way in hell I could get a loan cause of my age and shortness of my credit history. Till I wrote him a check for $15,000 and told him just give me a loan for the rest. After he removed his jaw from his desk in shock, I got the loan.

    I couldnt find anything resonable for within 20 that wasnt beat, I bit the bullet and bought a brand new one because a decent used one was gonna run me about $25,000. Its worth it to spend the extra money and get something that looks nice and will run without any problems. You could also consider selling one or two of your other trucks to buy a nicer dump that will do more work than the pickups.

    No one interested eh? That's ok I will keep my truck and have no payments. Truck will last at least another 5 years. Excellent mechanical shape.

    I've got a 1999 F350 V8 with a western 8.5 V PLow with Ultra-Mount. The truck doesn't have 4x4 but it is a 12ft stake body dump with a 1600 pound lift gate on the back. (Great for off loading plant material without a loader) Runs great and has 70000 miles. Throw a spreader in the back and you shouldn't't really need 4X4. Slips around every now and then when you plow without a spreader or weight but when loaded up it's ok. $17500 obo

    I have a 1992 F Superduty diesel with a 7.5 western straight blade with the unimount. Truck has a tool box and a 12ft stakebody dump. 7.3 Liter diesel with 120K miles on it and am asking $11500.


    I would like to talk to you about possibly doing some work next with us down in your area. If you interested call me at 215.836.9797
