Re: Truck Recommendation
Look into an M35a3, you can get one surplus for about 8 K, it has a Cat diesel with an Allison Automatic. Also will give you 6x6 and on board tire inflation system. It will have plenty of power to pull a bobcat.
CDL is not required for farm trucks... The weight does not matter. Farms are exempt and any ticket issued to you because you didn't have a CDL should be taken before the court.
Another truck to consider would be a Nissan NPR.
