    I did a serch but very little info. I am interested in a 10' platform dump on a short wheel base Mitsubsi with a 13,500 gvw.What would you guys recomend?? I am considering a telescopic hoist. My objective is to keep the bed as low as possiable to the ground. Has any one used these hoists in the past? Thanks for any help!!

    Rare to find many 10ft dumps with post hoists,most of the time they seem to use scissor hoists.Not that they are unavailable but the dog house makes some products stick in the box easier.I'd stick with a scissor for such a short box,and because they are more common they will be cheaper.
