once i loaded it a few times, had no trouble. the angle isnt tht bad. it would help to have another person that could lower the dump once the machine gets up in it.

i think ive made a descision and decided to take a leap of faith and get a walker come the end of the month.

Why not get longer ramps made for the trailer? ... I love that dump trailer & Dodge setup ... I don't think a single landscaping or tree service around here 5th wheels and I can't for the life of me understand why

the ramps are made for the trailer. they are 8ft long and slide in the rear of the trailer. the trailer is made to tilt up and lock in place while loading equipment.

Still up in the air , but I'm about 90% set on the Walker. Picked up a really nice account today. Would really shine with a walker on it. Plus the monthly income from ths one account is more than enough to cover the note of the Walker I want.

Congrats on the job! Just wait till you take the emissions junk off. I put the H&S XRT pro and 5" turbo back straight exhaust on a few weeks ago. I pulled the Skid steer and 4 pallets of flag stone with it Monday on 25' gn. It was just effortless for the truck on the 60hp setting.

Will get some. Damn camera died on me when I went to take pics before I cut it ths evening. The monthly income from just ths account is enough to cover the note on the new walker I want. Plus ths yard would really shine, if I bagged it.
