Im looking for a dump to haul material and equipment. Im wondering if loading and unloading equipment in a low profile is scary enough to just go with a regular deck over and eventually get an equipment trailer also. Is it bad?

Im looking at the Cam 14 k's. They seem to be significantly cheaper than the locally built small guy units but not much less in build and quality.

The dual piston setups are probably not as good as the big scissor lift style of the local guys.

Anything else I need to look for?

We used a dump trailer to move equipment before we got a float and it worked just fine. I would recommend a single hoist on the front as opposed to a scizzor lift. It will make the dump bet more vertical for dumping sticky loads and they seem to lift stronger to me with a heavy load.
