I have been building the biz for 5 years now and its slow when every scratch penny has to be made first to build. I moved from a 4x6 utility and push mowers from the first year to a 7x10 custom flatbed and some really decent equipment. Only thing is still not enough room for all the debris/clippings. I want to upgrade now but can't justify a debris systems or dump yet, I don't use a pickup either. I want ideas please. I would to upgrade to another flatbed possibly an Aluma but I need ideas on building a debsis area on whatever it is I purchase. Please the more ideas the better. Greatly appreciated!

I am having a trailer custom built right now (just about done) so I added all the options that I wanted. I use a pick-up to tow with, but I don't use the bed for my debris/clippings. So all of my clippings end up being put on my trailer. I currently have a 6x14 trailer and just used plywood sides to hold all the clippings in. But that gets tight when I have the equipment on there, so I'm upgrading to my new 7x18 trailer.

My new trailer has a side ramp gate (54" wide) both to load equipment in the front and to help empty the trailer at the end of the day. I also included 4' mesh sides about halfway down the trailer. I also added flood lights to the front of the trailer for unloading the debris during low light conditions.

Oh, I will be sure to put up some pics when I get it. It went in for paint early this week, so I'm hoping I will get it at the end of next week. I designed the whole trailer myself as to make the trailer work for me perfectly. The guys building it have a very good reputation for building excellent products, so I'm pretty sure I'll be very happy.

Yeah a Ford Expedition 5.4 Liter V-8 oversized radiator w/tow. I like it, plenty of room for extras in back, little debris room but that is why I am looking for innovation here. Not quite heavy enough truck to pull a debris system or anything.

That is the sweetest looking trailer to fit my needs and towing capacity I have seen yet. They deliver too. I will update you when I decide, thanks a million!
