    I got my new dump insert today, finally. It is a DownEaster Aluminum Dump insert with the double acting pump, Head Board and Tarp System. It is awesome. I cant wait to use it!

    Going to buy the salter attachment in the fall.

    Any comments?

    I think it weighs about 400#. I could be a little off, but two guys lifted it into the truck when bolting it. Doesnt even squat the truck.

    Thanks Mike. Did they ship yours out yet? If not could you add the side boards to your order (aluminum or stainless) and we will work out of some kind of shipping deal? if not no big deal.

    The stainless I dont think is 808. With the sideboards it should hold 5 yards. But your right, the only time I'll ever be pushing 3 tons is with sod, and thats still overkill. Better to be overkill than under.
