Some jobs require more brawn than what the original equipment can provide. For those heavy-duty tasks, Venco/Venturo Manufacturing offers its new VP6 dump hoist for model year 2011 and 2012 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. By adding a scissor hoist to an eight-foot pickup box, this product converts your full-size Chevy or GMC into a 6000-pound-capacity dump truck.

Venturo manufactures hoists for Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Dodge full-size trucks, and crafts each one specifically to retain the vehicle's original look. Its newest product includes an integrated lifting nest, hinge assembly, and body stiffener in its body understructure to provide support and rigidity for the pickup floor. Other features include integrated hinge and bumper brackets, and greaseless composite bearings in the hinges. A bumper relocation kit allows for a clean exterior look that's close to the original design of the truck, while also maintaining the Class II hitch rating.

With Venturo's hoist equipped, a GM truck can unload the contents of its truck bed at a 45-degree dump angle. Venco says the hoist's combination electric/hydraulic pump offers industrial-strength performance, and comes in both single acting (gravity down) and double acting (power down) versions. A safety prop and handheld pendant controller are also included as standard equipment.
