    just got in a poly dumper dogg we installed it on our truck.. it was a real easy install and seems like it would work great! i wish we would have gotton the steel because the poly takes up alot of room and you loose alot of space...
    i will post some pics soon!

    Hi guys - check out the video at www.dumperdogg.com.


    It's a nice unit - based on the same concepts as our SHPE's - that material holds up well to abrasion - and with the double wall construction it's as stiff as any steel unit.

    Sign me up if they do! Get the spreader made in time for this winter and I would buy it immediately! Just what I wanted, poly dumper and poly spreader to go with it! Make the tailgate replacement spreader in poly with the same basic guts and controller as the poly vboxes and keep the cost down and you won't be able to keep up with the demand I bet! No rust or dents, year round use, easy to store the tailgate, what could be finer!!!!!!!:redbounce:redbounce:redbounce

    I was just out with our test Poly Dumper Dogg this weekend. I had it loaded to the brim two times with a torn down deck. Lot's of naily wood, sliding stuff in and out. Once I dumper everything out (literally), the poly hopper still barely looked used. That stuff is very slippery, and it's hard to scratch. Another huge advantage of the poly...

    These are pretty cool. I just dont like the big logo on the back. A salter option would be awsome.

    X2 on the salter option. I haven't done my research, but does anyone know if they have one of these available for a service bed?

    I emailed the DumperDogg site asking if a salter option was coming without seeing this thread. They responded as nothing is in the works. I found this thread and thought to bring it back alive.

    Having a salter option would make the product more attractive to potential buyers as it could be used year round. It's cost effective compared to the contractor box dumps that is currently the norm with end gate salters. The potential buyer is the landscape/construction guy needing to unload bulk material during the summer (mulch/landscape rocks/constructiondebris/etc) and snow work during the winter.

    My only guess of why it wouldn't be built is it would be a hot seller and your vbox salter sales would suffer.

    Hope that it comes to market before someone else makes one.

    By the way just ordered the 8.5 VX plow from Jim at Equipment Specialist can't wait to get it.

    I don't see why, (except the weight maybe) a downeaster unit couldn't be fabbed up. You might need to support it along the side somehow, but it could work. They look to be similar in size.

    With the DumperDogg a regular unit would hit the bumper or box when tipped it looks like. If they get past that then it's easy.

    If they can't get past that, I picture something that mounts into the receiver hitch, a tray with augers bringing the material to the middle to spread. That way the DumperDogg just needs a vibrator and a special gate maybe. Just raise the bed it falls to the tray. The tray would need to somehow seal against the DumperDogg for overage.

    Scott are you picturing it in your head yet?

    The attachment sits out enough that the spinner should be just in front of the license plate. I think your design may be a little to complicated when the downeaster would work if the weight could be distributed up the sides of the dumper.

    Believe me, we've already got it handled. It takes 12-18 months to develop a new product properly.

    Is there a weight savings over steel? I was looking at a steel inserst that was 600lbs so decided not to purchase.
