Hi everyone, I'm looking at buying either a chipper truck, or a bucket truck. I've been in business for a few years now, and always have more work than I can handle during the season. I love being an arborist, and I love climbing. My operation has been very profitable, as I maintain an extremely low overhead by doing all the climbs myself, and using a pickup truck and a 6x10 dump trailer with some raised sides, I also do all my own cleanup. As I said, this has been very profitable, but it's time to buy something I can chip into, and get more work done. I enjoy running a small show, and being very involved. I don't like to have more than 2 employees at a time, and I prefer to have just one. I feel like the next logical step is a bucket truck with a forestry body, but I am however an arborist, not a mechanic. I'm 27, have no debt, and no financial obligations. I've also saved a lot of the money I made with such a low overhead, knowing at some point this expense was coming. I'm more than willing to finance something for somewhere between 50k-70k, and feel like that should be enough to get a decent truck. I would just like to get the right one. I do have experience flying a bucket, but not much in maintenance other than greasing it. I feel like either one is a good choice, I'd just like to know what you guys think as the experts who have been there. Did you buy a small chip truck and wish you'd bought a bigger one? Or a big one and thought it was overkill? Have you bought a bucket truck with a forestry body? Did you ever regret having the boom for maintenance reasons? How old would you say is to old, and how many km's is to many km in your opinion? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize for how long this post was lol. Also, here are two bucket trucks for sale in Ontario,Canada (where I am). I was wondering if you guys would steer towards either of these trucks, or away, and for what reasons. http://www.kijiji.ca/v-heavy-trucks...ck/1242902694?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true http://www.kijiji.ca/v-heavy-trucks...ck/1241146825?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true Thanks in advance, any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
