    Your probably talking about TrippleL. I believe he runs both a vbox and his ebling at the same time.

    I ordered Triple L's for him and he's very happy with it. I have pricing if you want it and I can give you a really good deal this time of year.

    Most spinners are 1" shaft and it will cost next to nothing to extend. Is a 16 ft back blade worth it for time savings, do a search and find out for yourself. Once you use an Ebling there is no going back. You'll actually find you hardly use your front blade because the back blade is so productive. Ask the guys that have them don't take my word for it.

    You would be better off with the salter on a seperate truck.

    we have a vee box in one of our trucks with a back blade. the key is having two lift cyl. and make sure it goes high enough. it looks like you are from MI. ours was make on the west side by b &b trucking. (competitor of ebling) 8 ft mold board with 2 2' swing wings. it works great.
    we needed it because his route is so far away from most of the rest of the trucks so we dont have to send two trucks to that part of town.

    good luck

    I've only seen one around town, it was a 1 ton Chevy flatbed, I thought it was something else, hadn't seen one with both before.

    ours is on an 05 chevy 2500 hd. had stronger springs put in by state spring. its a lot of weight for a 2500 but with extra leaf springs seems to handle it fine.
