    Default Anyone seen this style dump?

    1993 Intl FourGuys tanker rear dump. 10" pneumatic butterfly valve. Has a extension chute that locks in the spring socket. Looking for dump mfg in attempt to source a 90degree chute. Any idea who made/makes this socket assembly?

    I know you probably already thought of this, but by chance did you contact Four Guys and ask them? They might be able to head you in the right direction.

    We bought a truck with a setup like this. That fitting is used on irrigation systems. I can't remember who made our extension for us, but it was a company in the midwest who sold irrigation equipment. The company we found was able to build exactly what we wanted.

    This was interesting enough that we contacted 4 Guys.
    They took a look at the picture and say that the valve is made by Betts Industries in Warren, PA. 4 Guys does the air actuating.

    We have a similar setup on our tanker except ours has an elbow that attaches between the discharge and the chute so that we can dump off of either side or straight off the rear.

    Tanker 61 in Corolla, NC (Outer Banks) has one . If there hadn't been an answer here I was gonna ask them about it.
