4 wheel drive dump truck option

Mitsubishi dump truck 4x4
My last trip to BFR Mulch in Norton gave me a chance to ask the guy about delivery options.

It seems they have a small Mitsubishi 4 wheel drive dump truck that can haul 5 times what we can do in the truck. The delivery fee is 30 dollars from Norton to Coeburn, which is about the half way mark for us and why the guy guessed the charge to be around 60 bucks for our zipcode.

These are very handy. It would be nice to see more of these in Australia. Do you ever have any issues with the lifting mechanics?

We haven't actually used it yet --- if we did, it would be a day rental option, driven by someone else. So, unfortunately, we don't know much about it. (Although I think it looks fascinating. :-) )
