    Id rather NOT get electric this time around for a truck.

    Id rather get a engine/belt drive clutch hydraulic pump to power the 12' landscape body dump or

    a ford f550 2010 trans PTO pump, by i guess Muncie or Parker Chelsea? Both shops that i had quote out aluminum dump bodies ONlY will install their electric drive setups, which are slower and cheaper etc.

    The hoist im looking at is the Rugby LR165 which is for a truck and says it will dump 7 tons with a 50deg dump angle, i guess for how much it can tilt the bed positioned where it is under the 12' body on the ford frame? its a 5.75" tall hoist.. anything larger gets into the 7.5" tall stuff which isnt that much taller but the whole body would have to sit up another 1.75".

    Will 14,000lb dump capacity be plenty no matter how its loaded, if its over loaded a bit with say 12-15 yards of mulch?

    What gpm should i be looking at for a pto or trans pto pump, 5? which is 2-4x faster than most electric models already.
