Trucksters are great fun but really they are a work utility truck. You can put near anything you can fit on them and they will haul it. I've had cement bags or fertilizer bags piled as high as I could get and off I went. The motor is a strange piece, it has lots of torque to pull but does not like to rev that well. It is hard to rebuild as the cylinders are one piece as I recall...unless you have the liquid cooled 3 cylinder version. You can put an onan engine in them, and then they really rip with a 20hp. Take off in second and they lay rubber quite a ways. There is a version for meter readers that has a higher gear and will go 35mph or something...you can change the gears. The three wheels are nicer to use and drive normally, the 4 wheels always rode harder and steered hard. Take it easy on the corners with a three wheel obviously, but they are more stable than you think, especially if you have some weight in the back. The suspension is set for weight and so its not the best offroad. Last I knew Ransomes bought cushman, but they might be owned by Jacobsen. At the time I worked at a Toro place that sold them, they changed name from Cushman to Ransomes....but then they took them away and no longer could Toro places sell them. Toro tried to buy but bid too low I guess.
