i run a couple of rackbody dumps. i like them better than the mason type dumps. Im mostly maintenance so im hauling mulch and light materials so the rack dumps have more volume capacity.

I have 2 pickups and a rackbody dump. I don't know how you can get by without one. I use mine everyday. The rack body is real nice for hauling light materials. I can get 10 yards of mulch on my truck, for bruch and leaves it's great too.

I use all rack dumps with couple of pickups for trailering and running around for small jobs. They make work faster and easier. I am considering to even get a bigger dump this year to trailer my bigger equipment.

It depends on what yer situation is. If yer haulin mulch, dirt for installs etc...A dump is a must.

I have a flat bed dump, that I can make in to whatever I want with just changin the sides. If I want a rack, I just put those sides on. If I want a mason dump, I put those sides on. If I am using it for leaf clean up, I put the box on..

If yer just haulin a trailer, and cuttin, then ya prolly dont really need a dump. A dump will make you more versatile.....IMO
