Your landscape business is booming this spring and more customers are ordering cubic yards of mulch and river rocks every weekend for delivery. You are going to have to buy a used dump truck to make all of these deliveries. After all, you do not want to pay for a new truck when you can get a reliable truck with a few dents for a lot less. With all of these orders, you can make your investment back in no time. Dump trucks are offered by reliable manufacturers, like the Ford lines of the F-450 and the F-550. When considering a dump truck, make a list of your usual working conditions. Dump trucks offer axle forward and axle back configurations. Axle front configurations required more space to maneuver. Consider the weight you need to haul, as laws restrict total truck weights according to the distance between the front and back axle. Consider the terrain as well to avoid overpaying for more power than you need. If you work on flat jobsites, you can get by with less horsepower. Browse the large inventory on eBay for a used dump truck and other equipment, such as backhoes and tractors.
