This is my first time out in my ram 3500 dump with 9' Fisher (it's a little bigger than the bronco w/7'6") The Cummins pushes great and in 14 hours burned about 1/2 a tank (15 gallons or so)

Awesome vid man. Pushing snow with a diesel is alot more fun the with a gas truck. I plowed for a guy last year in his duramax dump same plow set up as you. How much snow did you end up with

Great video! How has that truck compared with others you have plowed with?

With the bronco I could fit almost anywhere but with the dump being 8' wide and the plow 9', I can't do small driveways but doing long pushes is easy @ any speed. the dump is 8,000 lbs empty plus plow, driver....

Pretty sweet plow. It looks cool but still would go with the boss power v xt That is what I want when I can drive. Right now I got a toro snowblower for my near by residential customers.

That video is sweet! I love that dump truck! This is what I need, but w/4 doors. Shoot new they are $50k w/plow for 2-doors. It would be a great addition and would be used for all the seasons.

Why a 4 door?

Because plowing with a longer truck that is hard to turn is fun? ;)

Why a 4 door?

That simple question "Why", just got me thinking man! Yeah why a 4-door?

Originally my thoughts were to have one truck to do it all. But the more I think about it, I could have 2 crews & trucks going for weekly lawn mowing this year.

It looks as though we're not slowing down regarding growth. Man I could trade two of the three trucks we have in as a huge down payment on a new dump with a plow, two door.

Fall Clean Ups, Snow Plowing, Salting & Mowing is what I would use this truck for, so that would pretty much cover everything.

Hmm that brought up a good point. I am looking to by a 1 ton in the spring. I was originaly looking for a regular cab long bed srw, but having a dump around might some in handy.

I love my little dump truck the 9' by 7' bed is great and not hard to drive/plow with. I use it every work day. I get like 12mpg and don't have to run back and forth all day getting mulch, unloading leafs... The only thing I wish I did was got a higher GVW I can only carry like 3,800lbs so keep that in mind when looking for one

my 1st dump was a nightmare. I got about 4-6 mpg. It was a pita to plow with except big rectangle lots. I did have a payload 5500lbs though.

I ended up bringing a different truck unless I absolutely had to use the dump. Next time diesel!

I would like to get a fuso or npr but there pretty damn pricey. Its hard to find them used with 4x4. I couldnt buy a truck I couldnt plow with so thats important. It does have a great turn radius and is pretty compact for a heavy duty truck.

great video man, i know its small, but i use a Ranger to plow, by far the best truck ive ever used! no need to spend the money for an f150, when mine does the same thing.

On driveways I would think a ranger would be GREAT easy to move around just add a little weight in the back and your good to go.

I used a dashboard cam that I leave recording all the time because of M******* drivers and "people" walking out in front of the truck trying to get hit
I think this is the same as I have on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vehicle-IR-Car-Dash-Camera-Road-Recorder-Dashboard-A1-/110650011702?pt=US_Surveillance_Digital_Video_Reco rders_Cards&hash=item19c3413036)

$30 cam + $20 32gb card
