Two weeks ahead of schedule and a custom paint job to match our green color, the new dump arrived Friday! Extremely pleased with how it all turned out.

I have often wondered why they don't line-X the inside of those trailers. I think that would be really nice! I guess the material in the trailer would not slide out as well though.

That thing looks sweet man! How much did it set you back if you don't mind tellin'?

Is it electric or hydraulic? How many lbs are the axels rated for? Looks like a sweet trailer man, Like the paint job too :cool2:

It's hydraulic with a scissor lift. The axles are 7000 lbs. each. We were talking about the line-x thing too when I got it back to the shop.

DON'T line-ex it! Sounds like a great idea but, yes, the material will not slide out. You want that floor nice and slick! I would hate to imagine shoveling mulch out the back of a dump trailer with that coating on the floor.

Nice trailer! You will love it, if you have not had one before. Couldn't do without mine. Just saw the guys at my old job sandblast an old Bri-Mar last week and repaint it. They actually did line-ex the exterior and top rails. Looks great (but it is a black trailer.)

it will slide out no problem with line-x, that thing lifts like stright up, nothing on the floor is going to stop mulch from sliding out on that angle.

my buddy line-xed his dump bed on his truck and it doesnt effect it all.

I'm talking more about the act of scoop shoveling mulch out of the trailer, constantly running scoop shovels along the floor and pulling them out. Standing outside the trailer, not in it. I wouldn't want a rough surface! it's nice to have things slide.

And, yes, mulch would probably dump out just fine. But what about topsoil? or wet debris? OR leaves??? I box my dump trailer for leaf season and when its full of 10 yards of shredded leaves, it doesn't always want to come out. If you leave them in overnight or they are wet, forget it- they'll stick right to the surface. Don't think line-ex would be good.... Besides, dump trailer floors are supposed to take abuse! You're not really adding valuable life onto the trailer by doing it. Why don't all dump truck drivers line their dump bodies with it? Cause stuff doesn't want to come out!

2004 Silverado Duramax pulls it no problem. I have not tried yet but am hoping that my 2003 Silverado 6.0 gasser will pull it as well.

Thanks, I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. I sent the manufacturer the paint codes and they took it from there. I wasn't sure how close they would come, but they definitely nailed it!

Line-X has a formular for dumps that is very slippery. Not sure of the cost, but I would do it unless my equipment was on a short trade in schedule.

Awesome looking trailer! Needs some chrome or polished rims or simulators on it to really finish off the look!

I'm not going to do any line-x'ing on the trailer. We repaint every trailer each winter anyways, so it's not the end of the world if it gets a scratch or two in the bed.

good call, i was talking with the line ex guys in our area about doing 1 of our trailers, they would do it for me but they told me how much weight it would have added to the trailer. not worth it if you ask me, 28' trailer would have added 650 lbs.

I'm surprised it didn't come with a stronger Bulldog forged hitch. Looks good though. Does it have elec brakes on both axles? There a lot of shody companies that don't put brakes on both axles. That's like having a truck with brakes on only one axle.

I want a dump as well but a tandem axle dually gooseneck. Bumper pull trailers just don't pull stable like a gooseneck. Plus your too weight limited by the bumper hitch.

I have three cam superlines and couldn't see my business without having these. my friend had one of his rhino lined and he lost almost 500 pounds of capacity. he also has problems with wet dirt sticking to the bed now.

That is a good looking dump trailer. I see a few enclosed trailers in the background, how about some more pictures of your set up. Looks like you must have a lot of business. Thanks.
