    Default Isuzu Truck?

    Does anyone have any opinions on the Isuzu Flatbed trucks?

    I know a comm. beek that runs a Cabover Isuzu with 16 ft bed and really likes it.

    I looked at a cabover Isuzu a few weeks ago, looked like a pretty nice truck. Good mileage, had the 16 foot flatbed on it. There are a bunch of lawn guys here in FL running the Isuzu's and they seem to like them.

    I have a 2000 Mitsubishi FH. Good truck, bumpy ride because it is a cab over, expensive parts, poor mileage / diesel.

    I don't know about Isuzu, but we run Mitsubishi FMSP 33k GVW with 20' flat beds. Trucks get excellent fuel mileage, rarely breakdown. A bit light on Horsepower if you pull a forklift but still well within usability. And you can't beat the cabover turning radius for driving down orchard rows.

    I was looking at one, but I didn't know how well they would do loaded down with full supers.

    So the turning radius is better with the cab forward designs? Make's sense I guess.

    The turning radius makes up for the bounciness. The turning diameter of my Mits must be 15' less than a Ford F-450.
