How much did you get it for? I've been looking for a 12ft one but havent been able to decide over low pro or deck over.

I hope your building sides. If so, how tall?

They are going for $7495 for the 14K. i will definitely put sides on it. i will probably make the total height about the same as a stake body, 40" or so. i also got the roll tarp for it too.

Heres mine its a 12ft. 10,000 with the equipment package with the ramps that slide into the frame and that tiedowns inside the trailer, I have hauled my bobcat in it but it is not comfortable compared to my equipment trailer. This one was $6600 out the door

I looked at almost every dump trailer on the market shopping for this trailer. i ended up back where i started with pequea. they where a little more money than say a PJ, but the quality and reputation is not as good. my buddy bought a cheaper dump and bent the frame with in the first couple of months and now is going to sell it and buy the same trailer.

What kind of door do you have? I went with the rear barn doors so a fork lift can put pallets in that back and also so the equipment ramps can go on the back.

It has the combo barn door, spreader gate with the spring loaded latch and the ramps load behind the door so if you lock the gate no one can steal the ramps. did you buy from Franklin on rt 73?

Do they have a website, I was going to buy my buddys 10 yarder for 7 grand, but maybe not if I can find a dealer of this close by. Otherwise his trailer or a brimar.

the problem with bri mar and some others is that they use a twin cylinder dump that is far weaker than the scissor that is found on most all dump trucks. also they do not dump on as steep of an angle as the scissors.

Really? We've had ours for a number of years now. 10yds of mulch no problem and we've had 9k# or so of stone...which is over the rated capacity...a few times and it dumped no problem.

I always thought the dual cylinder was better than a scissor...something to do with twisting of the frame.

Learn something new everyday...

I like your trailer. Mine is a beefy little thing...........6x10 10,000 and deck over design. I'd like to have some more room like yours but I bought mine for $3k new.

Problem is if I had your trailer I would need a bigger pick-up to match the GVW but just the added space for other loads (plants, mulch etc) would be nice.

Looking at the channel cross member, it appears it doesn't have enough welded area to support 20 tons :confused: .

the trailer is not rated or built for 20 tons, the hoist is supposed to be able to lift 20tons. 20tons would blow the tires out and crush the trailer.

Did you look into Load Trail, I was just quoted $7185.00 for 14', 14000p. Looks to me the only difference is that the the Load Trail is 10" taller. I think I would like the the shorter trailer. Any other info would be great.

i did not look at them personally. i looked online and read the specs. they look like a good trailer over all. the thing about the pequea are the little things that you don't notice on other trailers. like it has 8 lug hub instead of 6. G rated tires instead of E. 6 D-rings welded in the bed, extra wide battery box for storage, powder coated paint, extra long tongue so you don't jackknife your bumper backing up. it all depends on you use though. this trailer is going to get used almost everyday and used hard.
