    Im going to be looking at ford f350 dump and it has central hydraulics on it. Both for the plow and a rear spreader. I have never dealt with type of system only with the electric pumps. Is there anything to look for beside the basics(condition,leaks,pump strength). Also can I just get any tailgate spreader within the width of the bed or better off with a vbox? Also the truck has a control panel in the cab (levers and dials). I'm assuming some are for the bed,plow and the dials for the spreader?? Also with this system how easy is maintenance just a filter and drain? Also how does this system work (ie on/off switch) for spreading or more in depth?
