I just wanted to say hello, and that this site is awsome. I've been lurking around for about a month and a half in the deuce section and also reading the TM's. well thinking that im almost prepaired to start looking for a deuce to purchase and bob i find a decent looking 5 ton while driving to sacramento, so now I'm conflicted. I guess its time to do more reaserch.

Welcome from Sacramento. I went through this same dilemma, and ultimately purchased a deuce. It was definitely the right decision. I am not a big guy (5'9" and 160lbs) and the deuce is right at the edge of my ability to work on just from a size standpoint. EVERYTHING is 2x heavier than it needs to be. Double that to a 5 ton and all the sudden not only is everything heavy, it's too heavy to move by yourself.

I am about 2 hours from this truck and dont have time to go climb over it and give it a twice or hundred over-under and around to look at the data plate again.(should have taken a picture)aua
