Rock boxes

Anyone know were to get a rock box like J. Peterson uses or something similar? I've looked on google for rock box manufactors and the only thing to pop up is rock bands, lol.

Nope. Try searching for bedding boxes. Check with local fab shops too. Especially if the build a lot of attachments and such.

If its a smaller type I would fab it or have it fabbed. Sometimes you can find them at auctions cheap. I have been waiting to find one like J's but have yet to find them that small, like the idea though.

I got two bottoms from a steel military engine crate to use a a rock box. I was going to cut and refab so they angled out but haven't needed it. I have $100 in both.

I can dump material in with the ASL and dig it out with the mini x.

Hes talking the little one that I have.

I had mine made in 08, we use it on every rock placement job we do, and some times it gets used on retaining wall projects. We have even used it to place concrete where we can't get anything bigger than a mini and a skid.

I can pick mine up from either side with a skid steer quick atatch, or throw it around with one of the hoes. It was designed to go with a 3.5 ton mini, but we use it with my 5.5 ton as well. (The smaller one actually picks it up better)

We keep it next to the hoe, and carry material to it. Not fill it then carry it to the hoe, it would be impossible for anything I have in my fleet to do that, nor have I ever seen any larger scale pipe companies do that either. Its not a dump box in that way either, if you want something like that, by a rolling hopper.

I had mone built the way I wanted it for around $4500, and I am sure then price is quite a bit more now that steel and everything that goes along with it has gone up.
