Question

I’m a farmer in southeast Arkansas.  We farm 9,000ac corn,rice,beans, cotton.  I’m looking for the toughest truck on the market and I’m leaning towards a Granite.  Run in a lot of dust, harvest dust from corn beans rice and dirt/gravel roads.  Any info on the Granite that I need to be aware of would be appreciated!! 
 

currently running 8 freight liner cascadia and having nothing but trouble!!

Dunno about over there in Yanky land, but most brands seem to give a pretty good run in Australia  

The Australian Granite is a bit different than the American one but I'm guessing the drive line is similar and it is pretty well tried and tested in Australia and I dont hear many if any negitive reports

Any manufacturer's truck can be set up to be "the toughest truck on the market". Its all about correct specifications for the task. You could in theory spec a Granite so poorly it would give you as much trouble as the Cascadias you are referring to. In turn, you also can't take 8 Freightliner Cascadias off the interstate, which are set up for maximum fuel economy, throw them into a muddy field and expect them to hold up to that abuse.
