Tipping bed
« on: November 01, 2012, 04:33:46 PM »
Hi all.

I have just had an idea to turn my HD pick up in to a tipper. My truck is a 4wd model and has a blanking plate on the transmission for a pto. Does anyone know what sort of hydraulic pump I would need to fit ?

Don't have any experience with PTO pumps...but if you just do a "PTO pump" search on ebay...you might get an idea of what you may need.  If you have a NV4500 trans...you might want to search "NV4500 PTO".

You need the PTO and the pump, of course along with a reservoir tank, filter, and the big part - the mechanism for dumping the bed.  Picking the pump capacity (GPM/gallons per minute) would be based on the choice of cylinder used in the dump mechanism.

Here's a shot giving you an idea of what one of the PTO & pump combinations looks like.  This is a cable operated Muncie PTO and pump hanging off an NV4500.  The large fitting just barely in frame is the suction line from the reservoir tank.  Smaller pressure line not visible as it's hiding behind the larger one.  The single wire goes to an indicator next to the pull cable handle that shows the PTO is engaged.



By the way, you can easily spend a grand on a PTO/pump unit...you might shop around for a complete used package of everything you need to swap over, just hope that it's still in demonstrable form so you know you're not buying a bunch of junk that needs to be rebuilt/replaced.

Hello,

You can use a PTO if you really want to, but a 12V electric pump is really a better way to go. They are much cheaper and far easier to maintain ;).

Finding a hoist is that'll work with the stock bed is going to be the hard part. There are kits available on eBay that include the hoist and pump for $1200-$1500, not sure if they can be adapted to fit a stock bed or not...

Hope this helps,

Joe
