Hey Nich. Havent talked to you in a while since I got the enclosed trailer a few moths ago. I am running into the same exact problem as you. My helper is back in school now I am usually solo. I think I am going to have a bracket welded up for the front of the tongue of my trailer. Also, If I have a hand or my neighbor I can hook it onto the tailgate if need be. I Iwish it could stay on the dump insert all day but dumping it and lifting it back on is impossible. Let me know what you plan on doing and Ill let you know! thanks

I ended up buying a nice, cheap engine hoist at Harbour Freight tools for $170. It is a 1 Ton capacity lift and it picks up the loader no problem. I tested it the other day just for kicks and it worked great.

It folds too so I can push it into my enclosed trailer and take it to my larger jobs when I might have to take multiple trips to the dump sites I use.
