    Ours have box viberators on them. This makes it easy to spred base with. I will not haul pit/jaw run in it because its a pain if they plug with a 24" or larger rock. :mad:

    OH, yes. If you are wanting to spread a 6" lift and have some larger stones in the load it will definitely hang up. And screw up your spread even in the dump trucks. Our pit has a few larger (12-18") stones but we try to keep them out of the loads. My next purchase is a separator.

    Does anyone know how much they usually pay belly dumps owner operators. Do they pay by the mile or by the ton or by the hour?

    Mostly by the hour, unless it is a set run, then by the ton-mile.
