Pay attention when loading or getting loaded too. Its been awhile since Ive been to a yard to get loaded but quite often an operator using an yard bucket would dump spilling infront instead of out back of the unit. These spills add up quickly especially at 10-15 fills a storm.
It's usually me that spills it :confused:

This is definitely from the back end. I can hear every pellet the loader drops.

At the risk of sounding completely clueless on costs and mechanics, I'm surprised they don't come standard on 1 ton and larger trucks.

Isn't it just an extra part on the trans?
PTO is aboot a $750-1000 kicker.
In theory your close as to what it is.
I'm given it some thought to having my next pickup ordered with it.
I can see it being a handing thing when I get to Wyoming.
