Scissor lift or 2 cyl Dump

After years of back breaking work I am in the market for a dump trailer. Im looking at a few but Im needing at least 12k gwr. I would be using it quite a bit and maxing it out pretty often. Which do you guys recommend? The scissor lift or the dual cylinder lift style. I do know that I will never get a deckover, they look ignorant. Other than that Im new to dumps. Thanks in advance.
