    We used 10 bags of 80# portland. It should weigh in somewhere between 900 to 1,000 lbs including the metal framework.

    Here's a shot of the flatbed, it has a hoist under it as well, couldn't live without a dump body!

    ^Nice machine

    We have 2 flatbeds that were custom built for us by alum-line, here is a link to their website http://www.alum-line.com/

    Both of our flatbeds have hoists on them, our other one has fold-down sides and is more of a dump body configuration, here's a shot of it:

    I'm no high dollar tractor buyer.

    That being said, mine is not a revenue producer, per say.

    I just couldn't justify spending twice for three times that for the brand name. That I spent for this Unit. Whether it be green, orange, yellow OR red. Sorry!

    I wholeheartedly understand the guys that need all the network of parts and dealerships that the big name tractor suppliers provide.

    If it's your livelihood, it's a whole different scenario.

    I'm just not one of them.

    Besides, it's all tax deductible if it's revenue producing.
    To a lessor extent if less is spent, such as my case.

    All that being said:
