    Has anyone used an Aluminum dump body or chipper body. I am looking at a 10ft aluminum body it has 48in removable sides and a chip top has anyone has any problems with aluminum body handling a chipper as far it taking any more damage than a steel body?

    thanks man ive heard of them before im not far from them. Im thinking aluminum is the way to go as long as it can hold up to chips hitting it from a chipper. Only other materials i would haul would be mulch of leaves and grass clipping no rock or anything like that
