    I had thought about trying to load logs on our brand new Ford F600 12' chipper box by raising the dump and easing the log over. My Dad told me if I tried I wouldn't live long enough to see if it worked. I figured it wasn't worth getting Dad PO'ed, Joe.

    like you, I have done that. I approached it the same way you did raise the bed a little tipped it in it wasn't that gentle though I had brush underneath to absorb some of the shock. Ford F250 with a dump bed and helper springs paid $1,000 for it 11 years I drove that truck I miss her
