Our hardscape crews use Hino FB's with 14' dump bodies uprated to 24000gvw. Have a derated f-750 with a 16' compsite body ordered for heavier loads.

We don't have a specific "hardscape" crew yet, but hope to have one that specializes in it a little more in the next couple of years. For now, we have (are getting anyway, should be here in a month or so) an F-550 with an 11' bed (Henderson), tool storage between the bed and cab, side lift, etc, etc, GVWR of 19k.

Plans call for a heavier truck in a couple of years to do more of the hardscaping work with, and also a piece of heavier equipment. Unsure at this point what that will consist of; it'll either be a skidsteer, articulated loader or a mini-ex....
