Good morning y'all,

I am thinking about putting a flatbed or hydrabed for hay on my truck, i have always liked the looks of a flatbed on farm and ranch trucks. I raise a cow-calf operation in southern iowa, so the hydrabed with hay rollers will come in handy.

My questions for y'all are: 1) what are y'alls opinion, pros or cons for flatbeds on pickups?

2) any of you guys that do have them, what brands are good and what brands to stay away from?

Thanks guys

Flat beds are pretty common here in Texas. Most companies tend to be local, so I can't really suggest a brand or anything, but most are good, just make sure it's built right and is strong enough to support the load you want.

Some look better than others, but they serve a purpose and if it's what you need, get one then.

We use a Cannonball bed on our Ram 3500. We previously had Hydrabeds on everything.

I prefer the Cannonball. Controls for each arm are independent so you can center what you're loading. It is also a dump bed.
