In a couple years, I'm going to buy a pickup truck (either a 3/4 or 1 ton) (may possibly use a dump body insert), a truck with an actual dump body, or purchase a dump trailer depending upon funds, necessity/projected usage, ease of function/operation and of course, feedback from those that have experience.
I'm looking for thoughts on pros and cons of all 3. The truck will not be a daily driver, and if I buy a truck with an actual dump body, it will most likely be pre-owned and definitely not a daily driver, so I'd prefer a pickup and either equip it with the bed dump insert or a dump trailer as if I need to take the truck to work, I'd rather not be rolling up in a piece of work equipment . If I go with a pickup and use the dump insert, I'll probably take it out with the loader / pallet forks if not planning to use it for extended periods of time.
So, interested in thoughts on these options and would love to hear from those that may have experience with either one, some, or all of these.
My intended purpose is my own needs on my property and will be moving loam, sand, stone/rock, and mulch as projects surface.
