    Well i have the question above and I was also wondering what would be a reasonable price on a 89' 3/4 ton 4x4 Chevy. I would be in pretty good shape with about 150000 miles and not be rusted. I need a truck to pull a 6x16 trailer for lawn care. Should I make sure to go ahead now and get the 3/4 ton? Or, for less money, can I get by with 1/2 ton.

    What I would look for what the specific GVW is for the truck you are looking to buy. The heavy duty 2500 series will be around 8600 GVW. What that will buy you is a trans cooler, oil cooler,usually a snow plow prep package, and heavier suspension.<br>If you are looking at a lower GVW 2500 series, you can also look at the 1500 series.<br>If I was looking for a truck myself I would want the HD 2500.<br>Dino <p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

    2500 or 1500?

    You said you were going to use it for lawn service. Anything else?
    Plowing maybe? If just lawnservice I would have a 1/2 ton 2wd.
    They are less expensive to buy, repair,ect. Also, they should be able to pull your load around. Unless maybe you have 2 steiners
    a walk behind and 500 lbs of misc. tools. Then I guess you'll be
    best with a 3/4 ton. I have a 1/2 ton for lawn service (only) and
    it does fine.
