    I’m thinking about leasing one of my trucks on for sand hauling. Many places say they only want O/O. Has anyone ever ran into issues leasing a truck on that’s practically a company truck? The current driver operates under my authority

    If it’s that fine sand for drilling I’d not want to own a truck hauling it, that sand gets into everything, it’s so fine it’ll get into the engine and you’ll be rebuilding quickly.
    Just FYI.
    Knew a guy who had 5 trucks hauling and he rebuild 3 and had sand in the engine.

    Sand is as hit or miss as gas station sushi. You could eat it everyday for weeks and be fine then suddenly you're sick and out for weeks
