    I was thimking about trying to find one of those. I think they would work well here. I just wonder if the loader would hold up.

    Thats nice. Its kind of like a trash truck setup but with a dump body. Plus it would cut down on man hours and fuel costs.

    That is petty cool. Wouldnt need a loader on site at all with that. Wonder if you could put a pusher on the front of that too??

    As long as you have a loader on all your trucks it will work great but I think I'd rather have 1 loader and a few trucks hauling. JMO

    Notice the mirrors have to be folded in to use the loader. How would you see to back up? Must be a pain to get out and move the mirrors each time you use the loader. This looks to be an older Mack judging by the tube type tires on 20" split rims.

    It works for that, but they have many purpose's. The city uses one to follow around street sweepers and pick up when they dump on the street. They are made by PB Loader Corp.

    With camera technology coming down in price for about $500 you could have 1 rear view and 2 side views hooked up>

    Humvee, Madison is getting a new one at their Eastside garage over on Sycamore. The old one might be going up for auction when they get it.

    The Gas Company around here use smaller ones to load concrette and dirt on repairs in the street when they dig. I would be cocerned if the snow stuck in the bucket or coud you bang it to get it out. Then you mess up your dump too , wouldn't you ?

    The city I live in used to have Ford Dump Trucks with the same kind of set up. I always thought it was neat as hell as a kid.

    It may look impressive, but I think it would be one of the least efficient methods of hauling snow. I liked Syden s idea of putting on a box plow, you could really stack well. I would install a v box salter in the back, which you could load yourself. With that said, I still would not use one. JMO :drinkup:
