Guy around here makes a bunch of money delivering for a landscape supply yard. He has a Ford F350...No medical card requirements. Small residential deliveries. Not many headaches... but good extra money


I sure could go for some $2.50/gal gas and a mean tweet!

I considered a single axle truck & ask questions compared to a guy that was currently hauling in my area & about to retire.

I was told that get to know all the builders that might need a small load & be available when they need you, "not a part time gig". Run it like a full time business of 40 plus hours, establish dependability, & ya might get accepted & called on.

Not available on more than a couple occasions would get ya blackballed, word gets around & you're done. A small town..

That's just here. The thought sounds good though.

Buy a BIC lighter instead and burn a handful of C-notes every day for a few months- - - - -you'll come out money ahead in the end. I got my Class A chaeuffeur's license (now called a CDL) in 1976. I gave up trying to keep up with all the "Homeland Security" and medical exam requirements a couple of years ago. Because of blood pressure issues and two stents in my heart, I was having to take a DOT physical every year, and do a treadmill stress test every two years!

Around here, darn near every man I see driving a dump truck weighs 400-500 lbs.

Might see a skinny one at 300

Too fat to tie boot laces so they wear Wellington style slip on boots. 😃


What health certificate? ???

What does it mean when you check the arrest blotter and (its always a mexican) but when it says “chauffeur license offense”

does that mean their carpet laying murder van had too many beaners in it?

Nope, but I did hang out backstage at the Opry frequently when it was at the Ryman auditorium. My aunt was the only pianist with a regular spot there for 30+ years.

There’s a young guy around here that seems to stay busy and make enough to get by. He has a small truck, I think it’s an F550 older 7.3 truck. And a skid steer now but he started with a tractor and box blade. He does driveway jobs or did to start with, now he does all kinds of stuff with the skid. But he’s young and a hustling dude. And he may or may not just have a farm tag so he can bypass all the DOT BS, until he gets caught anyway.

26,000. Keep my 3 dump trucks registered at 25,900lb.

If I was considering something like you’re describing, I’d be more apt to get into hotshot hauling. Big money in transportation/shipping right now. Grab a Ram 3500-5500 with a steel flat bed/gooseneck and a trailer and go see the country.
Either that or a small (9yd) dumpster set up and rent to contractors and homeowners.
Being that you’ve worked IT jobs apparently, you’ll probably be shocked when you realize driving a truck isn’t exactly gravy.

Just an fyi, and I'd bet you know this but I know guys that do that too, but it won't help you if you are in an accident.... State troopers go by how the truck was built, not how it is registered and according to them you have to be licensed to drive it the way it was built.... If the plate in the door jamb says 32k, you better be licensed to drive a 32k truck.

The dumpster idea is smart. I rent one about every 5 years or so, getting one this spring.

Those old Chevy trucks are fairly simple to work on but the problem is parts are getting very obsolete for them. Several years ago when scrap metal prices went so high a lot of them trucks went to the scrap yard so it’s hard as hell to find parts trucks to rob them from. Spare yourself the grief and buy something newer and easier to keep maintained unless you hate retirement that much and like working on junk. I have a c/50 and a 60 and contemplated rolling both of them off a cliff and one point or another. And that was just keeping them running good enough to use to cut corn silage…
