Trucks for Team Ropers with Beau Bell


beaublogimage1In the team roping business, having a truck that will do what you need it to do, when you need it, is just as important as the horse you’re riding or the rope you’re swinging.

When the time comes to buying a new rig, it is important that you don’t over or under buy. Trucks are expensive and making an informed decision is important.



Know your trailer is the first step. How heavy is it? How often do you go down the road? The perfect marriage of a truck and trailer will allow you to have more time to concentrate on making the short round!

I, being a Diesel enthusiast, will tell you that there is no better combination than that of the Duramax and the Allison Transmission. The Chevy Duramax  3500HD boasts a rating of 397 Horsepower and 765 ft/lb of Torque.  A fully boxed frame gives it a 23,100 lb max trailer weight rating.

Along with the huge max trailering rating the Chevy 3500HD has a 36 gallon tank that will go about 680 miles before you have to fill up. That’s about from Decatur to El Paso!!

When buying a truck and trailer to go down the road with its important to have the right combination! Work with your truck and trailer dealer to make sure you are getting the most for your money.

If you can’t get to the roping, it doesn’t matter how good you or your horse are!!
