    I have a brand new F-650 Dump truck. I know I need a seperate or central hydraulic system to put a tailgate spreader on. So about a month ago I dropped it off to a place here in Metro Detroit (I will not say the name)and it sat for 1 month supposedly for parts to put a belt driven hydraulic system to run just the spreader. Every week it was promised it would be done and nothing. So I finally got pissed of and picked it up today with NO work done to it.

    Does anybody know of anyone in the metro detroit area or anywhere near that of someone that is capable of doing this rather quickly. I need a belt driven hydraulic system and a stainless tailgate salt spreader. If not maybe someone can tell me where I can get the parts for this.:confused:

    cannon is a great company to deal with, not sure why you had a bad experience but they did a great job building me a custom alum. leaf box for my ez-dumper.

    everything done the right way the first time, tony is and awesome guy to deal with.

    If you already have a dump bed than you already have a hydro setup, don't you?

    I'm certain that Monroe, (the one here in Flint/Grand Blanc, anyways) is way, way backed up. You MAY want to ask Knapheide/Jursik, here in Flint, though. Their # is 810-238-0100. I hope this helps.

    Also could check out Kalida Equipment in Toledo, OH. I would say we could do it at my work, Great Lakes Western Star in Monroe, but we are swamped with trucks off the road with all this weather were having.
