What kind of truck to get

I see a lot of guys sporting the F350’s. They look sweet but I cant rationalize it for the cruise time involved in resi work. I was thinking of a truck that balances company image with what I actually need in reality.

I would think a newer 1/2 ton would be plenty for hauling equipment around to resi work.

Ford E250 van.

There’s a guy around here that has a f350 with tow truck lights on top and wig wags. Puts on one hell of a show when he rolls down the road. Definately draws attention to himself

If you are planning on towing a p/w trailer with a large tank you need a fairly good size truck to handle the weight on a daily basis. I’d say a 3/4 ton would be better for longevity. I have a 1/2 ton Chevy long bed. Works great for me as a window cleaner. I don’t haul a tank right now. I only do p/w as an add on but the bed is usually full. 6 ft bed would be too crowded for me. Depends on your needs.

Yes. 6ft beds suck

We started with a single axle 12’ with no brakes. Pulled behind 2500 Chevy.

Currently, 18’ equipment trailer with two 5,200 axles. F-350 power stroke tow rig.

Next month, we’ll introduce the truck known around the compound as “Doors”.

18,000 GVW. Sometimes we haul water. Now we can legally haul 750 gallons.

Looks like a William special. I’ve been thinking about putting doors on mine

William is my hero and my door inspiration.

Hey Tim, I got the same “William Doors” for our box truck build.

Looks good Buddy!!

Thanks Guy,

The doors should allow one man operation from the curb.
