We used to have a Vulcan 807R.... had no issues... but didnt like the exposed cylinders on the wheel lift to close the claws... i broke one at $500 each... not fun. My fault, but they are in a bad spot. Great unit though.

We now have sold that truck and no longer have a Vulcan dealer nearby as we did. So we now have 2 MPL40s. Ours are on Dodge 5500 4x4 chassis with 84ca. Perfect combo. It will do anything I need, and its a winching animal. As long as you can keep the truck sitting still, it will move whatever you hook the lines too. Had a situation where i was called to a majore wreck involvine a few cars and an F150 with heavy damage- got to the scene and found the f150 was actually a F550 quad cab stake body... put it on the sling and got the job done. Its a solid unit. Very happy with them both.

we use MPL 40s . I have never had to send the rollback because it couldn't complete a job. But i have had to send the Mpl40 because the rollback couldn't complete the job. get up the hill. go off road. Motorcycles anything, it will do it.

The only con I can think of is in the rare case you have to use the sling, I would rather call for a rollback than manhandle the sling. I have only had to deploy the sling three times in 5 years and I pulled a muscle the last time so I removed it altogether. other than that my next truck will be a MPL40.
