I have an 88 ford f-250 w/ a 7.5' fisher. What are my options as far as puting a sander on it. I don't mind upgrading the suspension if thats what needs to be done. I have seen a few sanders around (airflo, raven, diamond etc) Anyone have any luck with a pickup/sander combo. The truck has an 8' bed/3spd auto/351/ 110k miles. I just spent a small fortune on it and it would make me sick to have to trade up to a 350/450 after spending all that $$. thanks to the veterans of this forum. I have learned so much from this website!!!

I have an 88 F-250 that I just set up with a Fisher Pro Flow 2 (tail gate spreader) and works great. I can use bulk in it or leave a pallet in the back (I use that for ballast anyway). I did just add 2 leaf springs to each side to handle the load better. I've seen plenty of these trucks with V-boxes too, so that must be an option too.

Look at the smith harder electric all stainless v box. It is only 650 lbs and very reliable, with no engine to worry about. You will need to upgrade the alternator tho.
It is a 1.5 yd capacity, but that doesnt mean you have to heap it. that spreader with 1 yd in it, will be ok for that truck.

I payed 3500.00 with tax 2 years ago, and I almost bought another one this year as well, for the same price. I have spoken with others, and the prices on that unit seem to be between 3100-3600.00. About = to a gas /mils steel combo.
A gas stainless unit usually runs about 4000-4500 depending on engine brand.

That electric sounds pretty neat.Don't have to worry about running out of gas!!!
Electric to me,doesn't seem like it would have enough butt.
