    I am looking to build a 5500 chassis and put a drop side dump body on it for all season use. During the winter, I have enough payload capacity left over to squeeze on a light spreader (poly)(~1000lbs) and a 3.75cy of salt (8,100 lbs).

    So I have two questions:

    A. What 4cy (or even 3.5cy) poly spreaders are out there?

    I've only seen the SaltDogg SHPE4000 but they look to have control box issues? Anyone with any experience with these please comment.

    B. Are there any options for hydraulic polys (run off your trucks PTO) and could I even do that with a dump body? Educate me.
