We do have installers around the country: Chicago, NYC, Denver, Reno, Erie, San Diego, Minneapolis and others.
Must trailer/truck body dealers can do installs for somewhere between $300-$400. The wireless remote can bump that up a bit. Where can I find a SuperDeck III installer? Try the yellow pages under truck body and trailer dealers.
The wireless remote is fairly straight forward, but I don't enjoy electrical work.
Here's a link to the instruction manual, direct from the factory. Link is HERE <<<
Another version of the manual, with more photos, is HERE <<<
A couple suggestions:
If you put the entire assembly in your truck first, be
|Very clean installation.|
THEN... Operate the controller to lower the deck to the ground behind your truck and detach it from the lift arm. Push the assembly up against the front wall of your truck bed. Then center the lift arm assembly (the whole hoist assembly is called the lift arm). Make certain it is centered side to side and in the exact center of your truck bed.
Drill two holes through your truck bed using the slotted holes in the lift arm base. Have someone get underneath your truck with the two plates that are provided and check that you find a position for them that doesn't interfere with anything under your truck.
Then install the mounting screws and your're done!
Can the SuperDeck III be easily removed? We do have users who remove their decks seasonally, but it's not exactly easy. The deck itself weighs #500 and can be lowered to the ground and disconnected. That part is easy. The "lift arm" assembly is the entire hoist, including the hydraulics. That assembly weighs #300 so you heed a fork lift or a dock or platform to move it onto from the truck.
Show here is a modification that you can do to permanently install the anchor plates to the bottom side of your truck bed. The two outer bolts secure the plates to the truck bed and the center bolt secures the lift arm to your truck through the bed and into the plates.
|This is how the plates are secured.|
Thank you, Bob Freedman for the photos.
You can add a fork-lift battery plug to the power cables to make the system simple to unplug for removal.
