    Looking into electric hoist for under my stock pickup bed. I have designated dump trucks for heavy lifting, and would just like to dump out small loads and grass and such. Has any installed these units? What can you tell me about them? The only one I know of made by Pierce sales.

    I do not want an insert because they all run the wheel well opening all the way from front to rear, and I am using that valuable space. The little bit around the wheel wells is still easier cleanup than forking it all off or trying to use tarps.

    Lift time they claimis 10 seconds to fully lift. That is slower than my pto hoists by far, but how does that compare to some of your electric hoists?

    Probably depends on what truck you're mounting it on. IMO you're better off getting an EZ Dumper, doesnt cost much more than one of those cheepo bed hoists, and is far superior. Then just find spot to put the things that there's no room for. Pretty much everyone here will tell you to stay away from the under bed hoists.
