    Tony - we have a Stellar hook on and Isuzu NQR. It works out great, but it costs a lot more than the Switch-n-go. I also have a conventional roll-off on a ten wheeler. Believe it or not the smaller cans can go on either truck, which makes it really convenient.

    I do have a tenant with a Switch-n-go on a F-550. I'm sure you could come and check it out if you wanted to, and ask him any questions. He seems to like it, and as far as I know he put it on himself. The cans seem a little bit lighter than mine. Of course I get pretty much the heaviest duty ones possible, which I have been pleased with. Sure we lose a little bit on weight, but the durability, for switching between applications is great. The lighter cans with wider spacing on the framework show their age a lot quicker than heavier ones.

    Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with Shawn (my tenant) to look at his set up and his bodies.

    BTW, we are having our normal Spring open house on March 22 (lunch time)

    A conventional rail system is easy to build you can have one built heavier and better than that one. The Switch and Go is more like a dead lift system but your stuck with those boxes with the snipe on the front of them.

    You are on the right track looking at a reeving type hoist over a hooklift which is not that great.
