I don't have one, but I did look into it for my pickup. I imagine it
would take a pretty strong man to crank the handle with a ton or more of
cargo dragging along the bed.
I had a hard time unloading a yard and half of wood mulch loaded onto a
tarp that was placed in the bed beforehand. I had to shovel a lot of it
out before I could drag the rest out.
I've used one with a full size F150 and a full size Tundra. They work great
for gravel, sand, etc.
Not so good for firewood -- it gets caught behind the wheel wells.
My 10 year old granddaughter, turned the crank to unload 1970 lbs (yep, I
was a little overloaded) of gravel, without any assistance.
Before I place the cloth in the bed I mist the truck bed with some cheap
spray on car wax... does that help? Don't know, I figure it can't hurt.
Good to know. Maybe the next time the SWMBO tells me to get some more
mulch, unless I can convince her to get the rubber mulch, I ,ay get one
Speaking of which, does anyone use the rubber mulch? I only use it
around trees and in the flower garden behind my sun room.
