    GM quit making the 5500. The Ford F 550 is a comparably unit we used to get them with 19500 lbs gvw in the long wheel base. You can get an International with up to 33000 lbs capacity in Canada on single axle with hydraulic brakes. You still drive it with a normal drivers license. It also sits on 22.5 tires so it has more ground clearance than the Fords and Chevs if thats an advantage.
    How many hives do you haul at once Jeff? The other issue to consider is some of these new trucks have a large and very hot exhaust system, if your in an out of dry areas I would look at the clearance and or a shroud of some sort.

    In my day job we bought lots of the 5500. I hear the new GM will be built in partnership with Navistar and will be aimed at the Ford F 450 , size,
    I would love to have the old 5500 , no emission burner, 4 by 4 and the Allison auto they are a great package. Mounting a crane like yours on a long deck they would be perfect.

    Still in daily use.
    245000 miles on the clock.
    I took all three hydraulic cylinders off and had them repacked last winter.
    Remember; these loaders are machines. They take their share of maintenance.
    Ian can tell you all about it:

    I have exactly ONE more hive than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond dispute!
