Did you get the truck? I have had an slt before, and i was not impressed with the ramp. Mine was the double folding. I would much rather have the one piece with the slight box dovetail. I am just as happy with a dovetail for 5k less.

I think the debri dumper has got to be awesome. Even for guys without walkers. I know my guys spend 15 minutes everyday cleaning out the box trucks. I might try to build one for my next box truck set up. Got any pics?

How does the side dump do with heavier stuff like dirt and smaller rock? What is it's weight capacity?

I believe it dumps 2000# but I'm not sure, we bought it for debris so it won't be loaded down with stone etc... it's not a dump truck but for ops that bag clipping (like us) it'll find lots of use.

In terms of height I'd say its the same as a normal box truck. It'll be taller than a trailer simply because it's above the axles and not between (deck-over)

In terms of do we like it, yes we do very much. We actually went back to the folks at slt and bought a used one that I saw on the lot when I picked this one up. The new unit should be delivered friday and will be going to our construction division.

Here's their photo of our "new" used one. I also want to point out that I love the fuel tanks, with our construction crew we'd haul around several diesel 5gal cans and a clear gas. no more! think of all that floor space
