    Payload on an f250 doesn’t justify addition of a dump, IMO. I already own the truck, so this would just be an upgrade. I’ll either keep as a regular bed or have a flatbed put on. I do not think I’ll get rid of the trailer, but would like to haul primarily on the flatbed. No lift on the truck, 33 tires. I feel like with such a large surface and short sides, that useful hauling space would also be a benefit.

    Truck is ample to handle weight. It’s the tiny Vermeer trl, but takes up 9+’ of space. Good little trailer, just hoping to minimize. Figured I may need 9 or 10’ ramps... its 2wd, Vermeer 252 with 35hp. We used to haul it in my dump trailer, which was nice and 28” old height.i think load height in a flatbed is 43”.

    I?m running out of room, we run our business out of our house. I?d like to eliminate my stump grinder trailer to make room for a bigger truck. 3 full size trucks and chipper fit down the side of my house perfect.Trying to bounce pros and cons of adding a flatbed 84?x102? on an f250 7.3. Any dangers hauling a stump grinder on the flatbed? Potential negatives? Advice? I like the space saving aspect and easier maneuverability potential. Unsure if it will be an efficient system or more hassles.

    Sean, to clarify, I thought you said $400 for grapple and 5 loads (assuming you meant for wood hauling) ... I factored 2k for that. No real market here, so I rarely mess with logs. Usually more hassle than it’s worth. If a mill wants em and I coordinate, I’d take 50%. I base my bids purely off hourly labor, that’s a cost I can calculate and make sure I earn money. I see $750-1250 in labor, couple hundo in fuel and a couple days using machinery and dumping Trees :)

    You took THC Jed, CBD will only make you feel relaxed, none of the racing feeling that thc can bring about. CBD is good for inflammation/pain, without getting ‘high’.

    This is none of my biz Stephen, so take it with a grain... but with the amount you guys book out, would the down time and maintenance be eased by investing in new equipment? A single large payment monthly could alleviate shit tons of headaches. I only ask because I'm in the same boat and Thinking about leaping into new truck and stumper, as we got a new chipper last year. Granted new equipment will have problems, but maybe free up more time for kids, life, etc without the unnecessary fuxked up days...

    I ask for resumes and a cover letter through email, no calls. If they can't do that to start, they're out. Next step is a full day, working interview. See what they got, then yea or nay.
