    Went Bobcat to pick up a cutting edge, they cleared the lot, but did not salt, it was a 2" sheet of ice, the other guy was moving at a good clip and when I was coming from the front of the building, he came from the back - I tried to speed up - he tried to slow down.....bammm!

    This just happened this evening at 5:00, drove it home and hoping no are no problems when I load up salt Saturday, 1" - 3" in the morning.

    I've been able to keep this truck looking like new until now, I'm thinking maybe it's time for a F550, hardly any damage to his!

    The spreader is the Salt Dogg 2 ton model.

    I had an accident also with a 350, luckily it ahd a dump bed on it, or else the truck would have been tottalled if it was a regular box.

    my advice, dont back up to fast if it is slippery, have a big truck that is hard to see around (dump bed), and if you are tired.

    Yeah, it seems that way, but you have to understand how cheaply made truck beds are. I bet if both trucks were F350s it would have turned out the same.
