    Any issues with the motor?

    Also, is the dump box electric over hydraulic or central hydraulics?

    Nope the motor has been perfect. Electric over hydraulic

    Triple l Selling to buy a tandem dump. Don't use it anymore. Don't want to sell but my best option.

    Dylans (NEUSWEDE) equipment is top notch and very well maintained. This truck is mint, sad to see it go (wish I had a need for it!)

    Love the look of this truck and am actually mulling it over.

    Couple things aren't quit right though such as no drop sides on the dump. That's about my only hangup.

    That and the distance.

    Its only a 9' bed...drop sides shouldn't be deal breaker lol load from the back & push it to cab...pull the pallet out with a chain.

    having drops on this size body isn't going to save you much time...now if it was 12'.....

    What is the most you have had in the dump or what is the dump rated for? would want to use it for rock in the summer

    I would agree drop sides are nice but this truck was for moving material, pallets went on the trailer. I did put pallets of sod in the back and 2 pallets fit perfectly with the tailgate up.

    I have never seen a weight rating for this dump, but would assume it is a 15,000lbs hoist.

    Thanks bobby for the testimonial, this truck is cherry and hate to let it go but need to free up money for a larger truck. When I purchased it my business was focused on different jobs than it is now.

    My biggest thing is pulling the mini skid around and being able to put 3-4 attachments on the truck without removing the trailer on a job site.

    That and the drop sides make mulch jobs that much easier.

    IMO you're wrong, drop sides should be on every dump this size. After having them on a truck you realize how handy it is. BTW, I've done the pull the pallet out with the chain thing, and I would much rather drop the side. Especially when you're by yourself.

    Very nice truck NEUSWEDE, Looks like you take great care of your stuff.

    You can reach 2 pallets deep from the back. Its the third pallet you need a chain for.
