    I HAVE RECENTLY COME ACROSS A FEW OLD HOME DEPOT FLAT BED TRUCKS FOR SALE. HAS ANYONE BOUGHT ONE OF THESE AND DID YOU CONVERT IT TO A DUMP? ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO OR TO MOUNT A HITCH

    I tried and tried and tried to contact that does the buying and selling of there trucks. I wanted one of there rental 1 tons from our area but the contact guy never called me back, I left at least 10 messages.

    I would imagine there maintained pretty well. The ones around here are very well taken care of.

    Thats the one I've tried to great, most of our local HD trucks are 3/4 ton but a couple are 1 ton single wheel. I was just going to paint it and make the flat bed into a dump. They will make great trucks!!!

    are you kidding me think about it, your renting out a gas job truck to people who plan on beating it up. $20.00 for the day, yea id use it, they don't take care of those trucks at all, buy a bunch of em and get a deal, prob. never have em serviced. There beat. I saw a guy once at one of the local material suppliers jus maxin the truck out with topsoil.

    I saw one of the HD rental trucks when I was at the store last month. It was a GMC 2500 HD, and the back tires were bald. LOL
    Obviously it had been rode hard and hung up wet just like your common everyday Enterprise or Avis rental. I'd say the truck has seen several good burnouts. So, wouldn't touch one with a 10 foot pole.

    Most people using it are hauling what they paid for so they are probaly not in any hurry to lose there load.
