Just picked it up today. Its 16ft x 7ft inside diameter.
The back gate either lets down as ramp gate or swings to the side for dumping.The floor is split at 9ft in the front and 7 in the back . The back 7 ft is a dump floor raised by a 1 ton winch located over the rear gate. clearence is 6ft from floor to winch. 4ft sides all around and 5 ft side gate in the front. What ya'll think?

$3700, it doesn't weigh much more than a regular 16 footer.

Indy, yes I do get good business wit that name. Everyone says its catchy and easy to remember and it fits our rural area since we are near a large sweet potato growing area..

Great looking trailer, but what do you plan on dumping out of the trailer, leaves, grass, etc.....??? My point is, if you dump off the rear part of the trailer, how are you going to get your mower(s) back on to the front? Run them over and make a big mess...?? Just wondering, that's all.... :usflag:

Now THAT is the neatest thing I have seen in a damn long time. That trailer would be PERFECT for people that run Walkers, put the mowers on the front and the clippings in the back. Do they come in 20 or 22 ft? Hmmm...I am sooo getting one of those!

I designed it and had it made, guess you can get it in what ever length you want

Only thing I might change is to have a hydraulic hoist instead of the winch, so that way you dont have to watch out for the cable when you are loading it. Also would make the part in front of the axles be as wide as the axles, so that way you have a little more room up front (enough to have a Walker on there without having to fold up the deck. Hmmm...maybe once I get a little better at welding, I might make me up one of them.

I have a Walker and have been looking for a trailer to dump the clippings that doesn't cost more than the mower did. I love your trailer. My only problem is I have several properties that I can't load-unload with a side gate. Does this comp. have a web site for all of us to look at? Congrats on your new trailer looks great.

You could do those at the begining of the day, before you get the back full of clippings.

Right, but the ones that need bagged and you don't have access for a side gate, do first. Unload the Walker from the back. You can prob. dump a few times and still have room for the Walker, then when you can, start using the side gate, and fill up the rest of dumping part with grass.

Interesting concept, I'll say that. It's like a transformer! I'm curious to see your equipment loaded up on it and how it all fits on there.

Also, why no front on the dump portion? Even a removable one? How far does that battery box hang out past the wheels on the passenger side there? (I assume that's the battery for the wench.) you will have to be very careful to not hook things with that as you pull away from curbs!

Not knocking it, I never would have came up with the design even.

There is a lip for a temp wall in the middle for hauling leaves and such the wall just isn't there for the pics. the battery box is about as thick as the wheel wells, but yes I am sure I'll whack my elbo a time or 2 before i get used to it

You could just design it with the dump at the front, and have it dump to the side. Exact same design, just dumping other direction. That is what I am doing with my trailer. I just picked up a trailer today, and have been designing something very similar to Taters.

I like it too. Very good idea. I have the same trailer you have, only mine doesnt have the side gate (but soon will). I think I might build something like this for mine. Just a 6x8 frame with 2x6 boards on it, hinge it somehow at the rear, and weld on an "eye" at the front in the center for a winch to hook to. Then use your arch design above the gate for the winch to mount to. I'll do this so that its removable if I ever get rid of the trailer and easy to install without cutting into the floor of the trailer. I could probably weld it up out in the garage and just set it in the trailer, bolt on the 2x6 boards, hinge it somehow, etc... Great idea. You should patent it. Ha. Ha.

only ONE thing I see that I would do differently here...nothing major...just a nitpick personal preference...on that eye where the cable connects, I owuld have made that eye recessed into the floor so that it lays flat when the winch was not in use. Like I said, trivial. NOt knocking the design, LOVE IT. Just making mental notes outload so if I ever decide to do something like this. Looks good!!

Nice trailer, and great idea. Work smarter, not harder!
My only question, do you put some kind of side boards on the dump part, so sticks/ leaves and debris dont get caught up in the expanded metal while dumping. The reason I ask, I built wooden stake racks on my dump trailer and whenever I haul sticks and other debris, they seem to always get hung up into the stake rack and become a major PITA when dumping.

guys go to www.capstonecommerce.com an place in indiana makes the same type of trailer but with hydraulic dump-they work great

I just picked up a 20' 12,000 rear dump capstone trailer. They had it listed on ebay for auction. Won it at 5100.00. I think that was a pretty good deal. I'm going out to pick it up this week so I'll let you know how they actually look up close. If you're looking for a capstone keep you eye on ebay. They have a store on there as well.

Sweet Tater that is a nice looking trailer. Mine will mainly be used for hauling around an rc-30 skid steer and small loads of gravel in the dump section. I had been trying to think of how to haul the skid and the gravel and make it user friendly. I was actually considering buying a 22' tilt trailer. 14' tilt 8' stationary and then mounting a pickup dump insert on the front. I was just worried about tounge weight doing it that way. I was also looking at dump trailers but figured it would be a hassel to haul extra attachments that way. Then I ran across the capstone last week and decided that may work.

Yours looks like a great inexpensive alternative for dumping light loads. Very cost effective setup. You need to talk to your builder about buying a few wholesale and reselling them. Looks like you're on to something.

not to ruin the party but i think its a bit impracticle and not very efficent. sometimes you need specialty equipment, in this case i would have looked into a simple ez dumper trailer, i dont know if they make one that long, but if they do it would be much better IMO.

I'll have to answer that later. Te builder didn't leave much room at all between the dump frame and the walls, so I'll have to experiment first and find out.

If that becomes a problem, just get some thin sheet metal and bolt it to the expanded metal back there where the dump section is.

Sweet Tater
03-09-2008, 11:30 PM
I have considered that. If it stops raining long enough I have two spring cleanups to do soon. I'll drop the leaves in it as is this time and see if the mess side acts like velcro with the debree. If it does then I'll have to do something.

it makes me think about what i can do for mine when i get a new trailer... the only thing that i would do differently is have it so that the cable is attached to like a lever that is longer than the dump section so that then the whole dump area can be used with out the cable being in the way

Chris, it could probably be done, depending on how you designed it you might not get a full 90 degree dump tho.
or you could do the same idea with hydrolics, but thats about another grand or more.

Sweet Tater
04-02-2008, 10:52 PM
Well for those that are keeping up with the functioning of this trailer.. I put the first serious load on it yesturday. Carried 1.5 tons of gravel on the dump end. Even with the 1000 pound mower on the front it still wanted to wobble in the rear, but I did have a hug amount of weight back there. The second thing was that some of the gravel got between the two frames and jammed the dump down. My proposed remedy for that is a rubber skirt around the very edge to preent debree fro getting between the frames again. Other than that, she halled 1.5 tons of gravel very nicely.
I post that for those that were looking at my trailer and thinking about mods to theirs.

Thanks Dura, I've had to make some adjustments to it since this was posted. found that when I loaded the mower on the side gate

Nice design Tater. I've been thinking of a way of using hydo but after stumbling across your thread, I think I'll use a winch. I'm going to make a small 4x6x4 box on the front of my 6x12 and make it so it dumps from the side. I can do it cheap enough and have everything but the metal to fab something up. I'll keep thinking about it until I can get the material's to make it happen. :)

My trailer isn't quite big enough but I have to make use of it so I'm hoping a 3x4x6 box will hold enough clippings to make it worth my while to build everything up. I ordered a 3 bagger kit for my Tiger Cub so I'll need to get started soon with the box. My only problem is, I have limited space so I can't add anymore to the box size. Do you think it will hold enough clippings to do small leaf clean-up and regular grass clippings? It's 3ft wide, 6ft deep and 4ft tall. It just seems small but yet deceiving in size. I realize it will depend on how much grass I cut,

I figured someone would have a better idea of how much grass clippings it would hold versus one in similar size, or based off a pick up truck bed.

lol, gotta get those post to pm.
The only time I've had a too much weight to dump problem, I loaded 1.5 tons of gravel in it. Its only a 1 ton winch, plus some of the rocks moved into the joints and jamed it till I got it cleared out and then worked the rocks loose.
I've used it to dump limbs, an old fence I took down for a customer and some other times and it works great.
I did have to have it reinforced under the side gate. The company that built it underestimated the high sides and the mower weight. When I loaded the mower from the side it would pinch the gate and it wouldn't shut. so I called the manufacturer and he fixed it free for me.
The only other thing I would change if I made another. I had it made 8' outside width, should have been 8' inside.

thats nice, that would be perfect for me i could fit my push mower and probably both of my riders up front and then just toss the grass on the platform and just dump it. Thats a realy nifty idea. who did u have make it or did u make it yourself?
