You can appreciate the “beef” of the GMC/Chevy 3500HD trucks, a stripped rolling 3500HD chassis weighs more than a running C1500!

When posting on this site you won't have to explain what the 3500HD Beast is! ie 19.5 wheels, straight axle, 10 bolt wheels, 15000lbs GVW, 4 Wheel Disc Brakes etc

Recently picked up an older Magline hydraulic trailer....would be great for loading lathes, safes, tools etc. It has a fiberglass 100 gallon tank, pump and 100' fire hose setup that I'm removing. (Dexter wheels and surge brake)

Attached a picture of mine which has the "manual hydraulic pump" on front along with a video of a later unit with electric hydraulic.

Anyone have any experience with one?

Off Topic Items-Politics-Jokes etc / Electric trailer brake fix

You guys may already know this but I just learned that the reason for my electric trailer brakes not working was that the drag magnets were locked up.  They should slide in and out  freely...just remove the clip and clean up the sliding surface (some anti-seize) and you are good to go.

Probably more of a problem up here in snow country?

Forum Help - Suggestions / Re: DRAC programming for 1994 3500HD speedometer
« Last post by ED-NY on June 12, 2019, 11:04:50 PM »
FYI

I used the 0.988770 ratio and my speedo is working just fine, at 55MPH with a GPS my truck is traveling about 53MPH. ;)

Also FYI: Soldered in toggles in my VSSB (DRAC) and set them as:  1010010/1011010

Yep, not surprised at all, and I would hard pass on that cracked bed rollback unless you were going to scrap the bed.  As you've seen once you weld it, it just cracks nearby.  It's been beat to death. :(

Yep  Found a 95 3500hd rollback locally with BBC/NV4500 that I could possibly for $2500..body rough and aluminum bed cracked (middle) on drivers side...someone welded it...but it cracked next to the weld.

You can find quite a few of those old HD rollbacks for around $6K.  Some are beat, some are decent.  (and some are diesel...) A little more money gets you a nice one.  Just watch out for the bed length; many are 19', I believe some are shorter.  Depending on what you load, you find out quickly that 19' can be a bit short, too!  And check the beds for fatigue cracks / welds.

Been looking for a light duty 3500 rollback just to have around the farm...there is a 3500HD a couple hours from me..."gas/NV4500" ;) Really don't need another 3500HD right now.

Facebook group ad, should work though:

Seller says rear end is bad, but overall truck sounds decent for the money, all things considered.  Rare piece of equipment!  Couldn't hardly buy the parts to build one, for his price...

Tech - Help Area / GOOSENECK HITCHES
« Last post by MrC. on June 01, 2019, 12:20:33 PM »
Is there a part number for the cab and chassis under-bed gooseneck hitch, plate style I guess. I really don't know a lot about goosenecks, I have a access hole in my flat bed, I would like to mount a gooseneck hitch under it. That's about all I know.

Thanks,
MrC.

Richard...good hearing from you...the tire situation is no biggie, recently put my latest SWB 3500HD project on the road and wanted to soften it up a bit.  Gas is about $2.99 a gallon up here so I don't drive it a whole bunch anyway.
