    Hi guys I own a F-Superduty dump truck and its set up just like the a standard tandem axle gravel truck with PTO operated hydraulics. Myself I don't like the 12v Hydraulic its too slow and really hard on your trucks battery its like cranking your starter over and over. With the PTO that runs off the transmission is the only way togo very realiable and fast I'am gonna set up a F-350 4x4 the same way. My truck is equiped with a 3 stage telescoping hoist which is the only way togo it will dump more weight that the truck can carry (8000 lbs).
