    Personal opinion only...Test fitted a 8' Western SS gas motor sander I kept when I traded my '01 Chevy Dualie 8' bed for a '09 F350 with a "short" 7' bed. Because of the way the western feeds out I was worried about weight of the sand with a foot plus unsupported overhang at the back. Traded the Western in against a 1.4 7' Polycaster and loved the way it "fits" the bed. No issues with an overhang and keeps a shorter overall footprint while plowing driveways.

    Thanks for the reply. The reason I was asking is that I had a salt dogg shpe 2000, which was made for an eight foot bed. It fit perfect though in my seven foot bed. I was thinking the fact that it is electric and does not have the weight of the motor on the back it might work. The salt dogg was an 1.8 capacity and at the end of last year I bought an air flo 6.5 footer but it's only like a 1.4 capacity . Was hoping to find some thing that is around 1.8 or so. Anyone have any ideas for the seven foot bed? I would love to find a pro caster seven footer in stainless but fisher stopes making those.
