Recommendations for CB/uhf radios?

Looking to outfit the harvest fleet with radios. Thinking Motorola or kenwood. Was thinking all handheld if they have 12v chargers so I could easily move between equipment year round. Would like at least couple of handheld ones for the grain truck drivers. Anyone have favorites? What kind of range do they have?

Hand held are nice for short range when moving or hooking up heads. For actual field use hard wired units are the way to go.
