I've got a 10k lb TA dump trailer...........know the cute little box on the nose for the pump? Hold that thought.....

Know the boxes that go between cab and dump on trucks? Hold that thought......

Anybody ever lost the little box and traded it in for a big double decker/4 door truck box?

I drive a 02' Chevy 2500hd and have limited space for all my hand tools + big STIHL BR600 blower + cut saw + 16" chainsaw + whatever else.....they fill the extended cab of my truck vs someones butt:laugh:

We have a landscaping company close to us that uses that same idea. They have two huge dump trailers with large tool boxes in front of the dump. I think you could put just about anything in there. They have been running this setup for years so it must work well for them.

I'll try to get some pics next time I see them out working. I don't see them too often. I believe their trailers are custom built, so I iamgine the boxes are too.
