So, I'm in the very early stages of looking for a dump trailer. To be mainly used for moving mulch, top soil and leaf removal jobs down the road as I grow. Would want a leaf vac as well before getting into that but I just wanted to put that out there to maybe help with suggestions being given.
I have seen a few on craigslist as well as some new ones. Is this something that is better off being purchased new regardless? Or, is a used one ok as long as you know what you're looking at and what to look for?
Is there a big difference between a 10 fott and a 12 foot versus the obvious? Is one a lot better then the other kind of like a 6' ft pickup bed versus an 8' bed?
What are some of the good makers? I have seen ones made by Bri-Mar.
What exactly should I be looking for as far as a battery type, ramps, gate style, tire type/size? I have also seen some that have 2 hydro lifts versus just one.
Just as an example, here are 2 that I have seen recently;
