    I'm not sure this is what your asking for ('cause there not 26K GVW), but here are two of mine.

    OK, that's not going to happen because I already posted them on another thread....here's the link:


    You'll find several that are over the 26K that your looking for.

    Only pic I have right now, has a tailgate type auger spreader.

    These can hold up to 6yards of salt. You just load it with salt and tilt the box and it will fall in the auger which drops it onto the spreader below.

    They can throw probably 20-30 feet and its all controlled in the cab with electronics not hydraulics.

    mike, have you run into any issues with not having enough power in the 5.4L on the dump?

    Mike, My buddy has a Poly caster on his F-350 pickup too. I assume your using that truck for parking lots right? What do use to load the spreader? Do you still have the tail gate spreader for the Chevy?

    GVWR is 26000 lbs on a 5500. I think you are alittle overweight with 8 ton in her.

    the only time you can really feel it working hard is when its loaded up and going up a hill otherwise its not too bad, no complaints


    Yea i use it for mostly parking lots and a couple really long drive ways. The place where i get my salt / sand has 2 or 3 Cat loaders, i still have the tailgate spreader looking to get rid of it cause i dont really need it
