I picked up this 1997 Cushman Turf Truckster Jr. on craigslist. Hydraulic dump bed, 18HP Kohler twin cyl engine, 3 speed manual. All steel.
I am going to use it for work around the yard and to drive down to the dock area which is about 2/3 of a mile from my house (private road).
....and I am not going to ask the group if it will tow my boat haha;)
It's in good shape and runs great.....surprising really stable....
Half of my friends think it's the biggest POS they have ever seen and the other half think it's the top dawg.
Looking for some feedback!!!!

What a cool accessory. The dump feature is nice to have. I see them all the time at golf courses.

Oh hell yeah!!! I know it's not a 3 wheeler but it reminded me of this gem of a scene from Austin Powers.

JASONZ - Not ready to buy right now, but maybe fall of this year or spring of 2018 I could be interested in your Truckster, if you decide to sell. Might be looking for something that can navigate lawn, gravel driveway, and forest. Also, want to pull a small utility trailer. Does your Truckster have hardware for pulling a trailer? - Deerfield

Hi,
I bought it from this guy on craigslist who's friend works with golf courses. When he sees older carts sitting around he buys them, fixes it, and sells them. I will PM his info to you. The truckster is not the prettiest thing but the hydraulic dump is rated some decent weight, it has a trailer hitch, and it goes fast enough (18mph) to be used as transportation around the neighborhood.

Turf truckster? I opened that and was like oh a Cushman! My buddy has one beaten to death and still runs great. We put a third row suburban seat in the bed and haul everyone around on camping trips. He's got some property and it's a work horse.
