    What do you mean he doesn't want power steering :laugh:

    A low side box with 12 inch sides and 12-14 foot long is what you need for hauling gravel.

    Had a 40 yard roll off deliver mulch and he drug it out because of dump angle. Almost like my dump trailer. Other day had wet soil that we ended up having to shovel out.:cry:

    Exactly why I chose the switch-n go. The lift hoist has a 50 degree dump angle. This was always intended to be my all purpose material handler....not just a roll-off container truck.

    Is that the HD switch n go model (all hydraulic/pto)? or is it an electric over hydraulic hoist and an electric winch?

    The version I have is electric/ hydraulic. No room for the hydraulic reservoir with both under mount tool boxes. It's been four years and I am happy.

    I am getting a F550 SNG in 2013 from my best friend, and he spared no expense when he had the truck made, it cost him almost $85k. The greatest thing he did is had a battery installed between the chassis rails so the winch works off that battery and not the two for the motor. Just a thought

    I know, he's crazy...but he already had a Peterbilt T300 and a Kenworth W900 triaxle he just has too much money haha. It's nice to have friends with lots of cash!!
    By the way, do you plan on plowing with the cab over??
