Venco/Venturo Manufacturing has released a new dump hoist designed for 2011/2012 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks. The VP6 dump hoist, part of Venco’s VP6 Series, is a scissor hoist that turns an 8-ft. pickup box into a 6,000-lb. capacity dump truck.

The dump hoist includes integrated hinge and bumper brackets, greaseless composite bearings in the hinges, and complete custom engineering.

“I’m proud of our team for taking our original, tried-and-true scissor hoist and integrating it into a new truck design,” said Brett Collins, president of Venco/Venturo. “It’s clear now that GM and Ford are here to stay, and that they will remain the dominant forces in the pickup truck industry. We have hoists for both, and the VP6 is a well thought-out customization to fit the newest pickup trucks in use today.”

Venco produces custom hoists for Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, and Dodge full-size pickups. Each hoist is designed to retain the original look of the vehicle. An integrated lifting nest, hinge assembly and body stiffener forms a rugged body understructure to rigidly support the pickup floor.

The bumper relocation kit maintains the original look of the vehicle and a Class II hitch rating, and allows for a 45-deg. dump angle. The combination electric/hydraulic pump offers industrial strength performance in single acting (gravity down) and double acting (power down) versions. Safety prop and handheld pendant controller comes standard.
