pro turf you should def go with the hooklift. You can buy a dump body the hydroseed body and theres a guy in my area that has a sander body for the winter. 3 trucks in one , that would be awsome. That way when the trucks sitting all winter not seeding you can just roll it off and roll on the sander and then youve got a huge sand/salt truck.

Heres a few links of our truck if you already haven't seen it. We ended up doing the roll off thing, and has worked out awesome. When we first bought the truck, we weren't sure if we could keep it on the road with work, and now it goes out everyday with a different body on it.

Ya, did come off as a nice guy. But now he still owes me $600 on a salt bill from one year ago this week . I "helped him out" once when his salter was down.

we have a bowie 1800 with a 60k hooklift on a mack tandem.. my second truck with a hooklift and its well worth the money. i have 30 yard containers that we can fill up with anything. i also bought a 20' storage container, had a hook mounted to it and now we have a mobile container i can move anywhere...
