    Nice trucks.

    I hate to see one like that show up on my site, as most show truck drivers are very picky and very slow. Also, most of what we haul is a little bony, so usually they refuse the load and leave me high and dry, looking for another trucker.

    The trucks are nice though, and look good hauling nice clean sand and gravel, or wood chips, or feed, things like that.

    Anybody else have some to share??

    why, operators get paid by the hour, and that loader is plenty high enoughf to reach over the sides, just take your time and load every truck like its your own and you will have no problems...

    OK, now I have a question for Jared and Tonka

    Both of you are showing full frame end dumps. I was wondering the reason that you run them, instead of the frameless dumps we use out West. I know they are a lot heavier due to the frame, so I would think you loose too much payload.

    I also like the frameless because when (not if, but when) they get tipped over, the frameless style is pretty inexpensive to get repaired. Usually some new arms and you are good to go, as long as you have a breakaway style cylinder mount.

    Now before you get on me, remember the application is different than you would see those show quality trucks doing. Sometime we end up hauling stuff like 4 to 8 ton rip rap, and if a rock hangs on one side of the trailer going out the gate, it is going over.

    I have even seen some of the real brain surgeons who can tip over an end dump trailer while LOADING it with rock. There's some talent now.

    The thing is, with a frameless, just the trailer is usually upset, but with a full frame, the whole truck is going to go over.

    So, now educate me on the upside of the full frame version.
