    Default TRUCKS post a picture of your rig!

    After the series of discussions about trucks I thought it would be fun to post pictures of our trucks.

    My truck big trailer:

    I have my pickup with a cargo rack that goes in the hitch receiver when necessary. I most certainly would not be able to get one of those big trucks in where some of my yards are and have been. Back when I was planning to become a commercial beekeeper, that last rig was on my list.

    Bob's truck was on its 3rd transmission and 2nd engine at that point. I really disliked that one. It was my influance to build the FL-80. I have to agree with Barry, Is that an apache?

    Forgot to mention, my wife's blue Toyota Carolla seen in the background of one of my pics has hauled a trailer load of bee equipment 2200 miles across the country on two occasions, and a trunk full on another occasion. My truck has yet to come close to that cumulative hauling experience.

    No, it's just a C-10. Just a plain Jane half-ton, 6-cylinder, 3-speed on the column. Only one sun visor and only one arm rest. But thank you for the kind words.

    I am serious when I say that I am in the market of upgrading my truck and it has been pretty informative to see the different makes/models out there....thanks for the pictorial information.

    You can't see all of it, but I like the look of Loggermike's hoist. Is it homemade? For small operators it looks a lot more cost effective than buying, maintaining, and hauling a skid steer.

    There is no one right truck. If there is, it is in the shop.

    A coworker told me about the same thing about tractors. He said, "No matter what size you get, you'll wish you had a bigger one."

    Just like a man, isn't it? Always wishing they had a bigger one or thinking they do.

    Here's one of the trucks I drive for work. Note the shop-built hoist. BTW, it is registered below CDL limit because none of us have a CDL!
    Not sure if I can get the picture to work...
    I give up. Can't resize it.

    That boom on the old F350 was made in the mid 70s by John Fruetel in Oregon. It was a good ,dependable, economical boom.Should be lots of them around still, collecting rust behind someones honey house.
