Okay guys, I need a bigger trailer for mulch and was going to get a high side landscape trailer to cut back on the weight but i just bought a chevy 2500hd yesterday so now im thinking i should go for the dump trailer route if i can find a good one in my price range. Looking for something that is semi new maybe a couple years old and i can fit at least 8 yds of mulch in it. Looking to not spend more than $4000. Dont even know if this is realistic as ive never shopped for dump trailers but let me know what you got.
Thanks Brain

I think that 4000 is a real good # to want to spend . I have three trailers 2 12' 1 10 ' you need to get a trailer with a high deck so you can load into the wheel barrels . a 10' trailer will hold over 8 yards .
Ive been paying around 2000 dollars for mine .
but asking price is always 3500 or so .
You have to keep your eyes open .

I used to say that there is no such thing as a used dump trailer. The reason being, if you are not standing next to it when it gets the for sale sign you will miss it. Most of them never see a for sale sign. Also most people keep them for ever and they keep their value for ever. You will pay almost as much as a new one so get a new one and get what you want. Nothing less than a 12 footer. Low profile will work just fine for mulch and they are easier to load with brush and stuff. Plan on spending $5000 plus you need a tarp and lumber for higher sides and spare wheel and tire ($500).

South Florida Lawns, do you have a dealer around you that sells them for that price, do they have a website?

These guy's are just north of columbus off from I-71. Cosmetically there stuff doesn't usually look as nice as some of the national brands.

I have been thinking about selling my 14 foot dump and using the cash as a down payment on a dump truck. Too bad you are so far away.
Like the guy posted earlier used dumps sell quick. I was looking for a used one for a while, then got tired of looking so just got a new one.

Hey Beano, here's a pic of my 12' 10k dump trailer. It has ramps, toolbox, LED's, heavy gauge steel deck, four wheel brakes, and three way door. The trailers you see for around $3000-$4000 new, are pure junk! I paid $5000 for mine last year and I think its worth every penny. Its made by Big-Tex and I got it from Ben-Hur trailers down here.

I agree with what you guys are saying, $4000 6x12 dumps are usually junk. Steel is thin guage, lights are plastic, battery is nonexistent etc etc. Spend a little extra money on one now and you will never regret it. In harder times like this it will only pay off to buy smarter. Buy once. PJ just started building what they call a "medium duty" dump. (compared to cheap brands its actually still heavy duty) Its a 78" x 12' 9990 GVW. It has 18" sides. We sell them here in PA for $5250. Its a great little trailer with features like LED lights, barn door tailgate, power down, stake pockets, powdercoated finish, Interstate battery, adjustable coupler and radial tires. Its a hard to beat package.

I have a 16 foot long red baker built dump trailer with 32" sides and we also made additional 32" sides out of pressure treated 2X12 boards. It has a 4 in 1 gate in the back. My name is Matt. I am from the Chicago area. I am looking for $ 7,500.00. Email me at mattdamico@comcast.net or call me at 847-989-9048 with anymore questions and I can get some pics for you as well.

google "Southeast Texas.com" go to classifieds,then scroll down to trailers. There are a few on there right now. Many were used for clean-up after the hurricanes that we have had in Southeast Texas the past 3 years.
