    I dont know about the price on the truck, but i checked on a trailer that had i think around 14 or 15 ft of equipment area and it was going to run right at 20 thousand. I think i can buy a few 18' trailer and retro fit like 5 walkers with the high lift system for that price. Not to mention what happens if they trailer lift dump system breaks down no possible way to get the grass into the box. Where as a walker with the high lift system you can alwase use a different one if another breaks down. Anyway it would work good for a large area ztr fitted with the bagger system like grasshopper has. I wonder if the bucket is low enough that you could dump one of those type of bagger into it

    I saw one of their systems in person and it was a pretty neat setup. It was a used truck being sold locally, it was a 2000 GMC 5500 with a cat diesel, had the 9.3 cubic yard debris system and the 14ft enclosed box with power ramp door on the back for equipment. It also had a 50 gallon separate fuel tank and pump for fueling equipment. It had 18,000 miles on it and they were selling it for only $39,000. The dealer claimed it was over $85,000 when new.

    why not just have an ez dump in the back of the truck, or rack/mason dump? not to mention the rig is that much longer

    I'd like to get one of those hopper things for my F350 dump. Anyone know if there is somewhere to look?

    Welch welding out of massachusetts used to make and install them onto smaller trucks such as one ton dumps, I will take a look for their number for you.
