Very nice truck,I just bought a used one ton dump but it nothing like this,this a nice rig
Thanks, I started with a one ton dump but it wasn’t big enough. It would tow the mini but that was it. No material so on sewer replacements I’d have to drop the machine then go get stone. And I’m doing more excavation work aswell now which requires materials.
My one ton is a 99’ and it has all the typical 21 year old truck problems.

Does this new truck put you over the CDL limit When pulling the trailer and excavator??

Have you ever heard of Schrödinger's uncertainty principle? It's where the act of observing something changes the outcome. His registration and license are perfectly legal but if a dot officer were to actually observe him pulling the trailer than it would change the status of his legality.


SCIENCE!!!

I’ve had my full CDL for about 9 years now. The truck could be registered under the 22,000# threshold like Penske or u-haul do on their trucks. But both dad and I have the full CDL.
The truck is registered at the 33,000 international rated the truck for.
