    Sweet Truck! Don't they make the Smith Spreader out near you some where? How do you like it?

    That's just not fair!!!

    Looks kinda tall, but I guess that's because you don't have sides on the bed.

    A Very Nice setup... I like it.

    Would you be able to "pull" the spreader / bed up if it was full of salt?

    the fenders are part of the hook lift made by stellar industries first year with the spreader so far i like it not nearly the problems without the gas motor (all electric)

    also i have not attempted to drop spreader with full load when heaped up it would make big mess but if i dont need it or it craps out then i can just ditch it visibilty on a cab and chasis is insane also for rerence the flatbed sits about 5 feet off the ground so it is pretty tall but with a 19K pound GVW who cares

    the hook is capable of lifting 12k pounds so i dont think itwould matter ive had 9500 pound containers on top with no problems

    That's pretty cool. So, if you had a small loader that wouldn't quite reach high enough, you could just "lower" the bed! And the spreader has a "moveable" chute? That's cool, too.

    That is a sweet rig. It gets my vote. We use to have 2 of those set ups on the work trucks it was sweet how you can change beds when ever you need to.

    That is one nice truck! What made you go with the F-550 over the GMC/Chevy 5500? I personally like the F-550's but for a hooklift I would think you'd want a truck with a higher GVW & bigger frame.
