Eeeeek...no idea. If you send me your email address I could send you over a few pics and whatever info you want.

Here are a few random ones I had from a job a few years ago. Is this the trailer you were thinking of?

Could someone post a link to this "How to fail" thread? I'd love to read it. I tried to do a search for it but I guess I'm not that lawnsite savvy....

I'm a big fan of them...

Low maintenance, thats good to hear, vboxs can be a pain in the $$###$$#! sometimes lol chains, starters, batterys, even with our poly boxs in our pickups we still have trouble sometimes, control boxes, vibrators etc.. its a pain, does your under tailgate spreaders run off of your hyrdo system on your dump bed ? or your pto if your trucks are setup that way?
