    I would take a smaller truck like that for plowing over a big 1 ton like mine for residentials any day. Now for landscaping...thats a different story. Nice truck, looks good.

    I will say this.
    Monday night, my buddie's truck dropped the trans. Had to cover his jobs.
    I would have traded you in a hearbeat for that small truck, when it came to his residentials. Holy crap was it a PITA to plow those little drives. No where to turn, or anything!!! But.....I did get er done:salute:

    I used to have a bigger truck. A '84 Chevy with a Meyer's on it. It worked well but the biggest drive I do is about the size of my own (in the background of pic 1) so I think that I will be fine as I have it now. This truck pulled my trailer full of mowers for the summer just fine.
    Sorry about your buddies tranny ,crappy way to start the season.

    I disagree....but it could stand some ballast. Turning the T-bars up is asking for trouble in my opinion. Especially since youd have to have the wheels aligned twice a year at 100 a pop and if it bottoms out once in a while, who cares.

    Nice looking rig.

    Truck in naturally higher in the rear. I have 480 lbs. in it already and it only drops about 1inch when I lift the plow. When I tow the trailer loaded with three yards of mulch it still looks high in the rear.

    I do appreciate the comments and suggestion though. Keep 'em coming because I know this is the place to get the best information.

    Good to see another Rochesterian on here! I am in Irondequoit but I cover Webster and Penfield too with the plowing and lawn care. Maybe we can get together for coffee sometime and compare notes. Good luck this season.
