I'm interested in hearing about hook lifts. here is my situation, i'm 18, in college, i have my own lawncare company that I run with my c-1500. During the winter and spare summer time i work construction. One of the construction guys wants to set me up with a full route, pulling a trailer with either an f-350 utility body, or an international dump truck (the guy is kinda stubborn) that I would need a CDL for. He also has an isuzu cab over i'm trying to convince him to outfit for me. There is no way i'd use the international to do lawns, its to big (I might use it to do excavator/bobcat), I like the f-350 and trailer, but the bed on the f-350 isn't dump and there is a ladder rack that gets in my way. The F-350 is 4x4 though, and i have a free place to dump that has dificult access, 4x4 really helps getting up to it (its up a steep dirt hill) Ok, now on to the isuzu, and the hook lift. I saw an ad for a galbreath hook hoist in a mag. http://www.galbreath-inc.com I'm thinking I could sell it to him because, we could drop one of the containers off at jobsites for debris. and I could keep a flatbead unit on the truck most of the time for lawns, pulling a trailer behind me. another advantadge of the hook lift is that we could use it to haul the excavator and skid-steer. The trailer he owns is only big enough to hold one at a time, with this set up, we could put the excavator or bocat on the truck bed, and pull the other one in the trailer behind it. my questions 1. are these things that I could do with a roll back, instead of the hook lift, (interchangability, availability of different bodies...) 2.does anyone else have a similar setup? anything else?
