    the f-350 dump is a much more powerful truck that can handle a bigger plow and take more abuse. but it is bigger then a 1/2 ton truck and is harder to plow in tighter areas with. the 1/2 ton wont be as powerful to plow with but it will plow better in tighter areas.:)

    Give me the F350 any day. A truck like this would allow you to take on larger jobs and make you more money and IMO this outweighs the trucks lack of maneuverability in tight areas.

    plwoed with both

    I have used both the ford dually and dodge 4x4 for years.
    The dually carries the sander and performs other essential farming tasks. This truck is really on good for parking lots or roadways. Forget the dually for tight work or residential type work; it will just be a frustration. Certainly carries the sander smartly though and piles of manure and hay. I would think about the total use you plan for the truck.
