Very clean and seems to be priced well. Just seems like a lot of motor for a small trailer. I bet you can fill it up in a hour of solid loading.

Leaves really compress so you can fill and fill and fill. We weren't filling it up in a day with smaller sites spread throughout the city, but huge properties (groups of 40-80 homes) would fill it by noon. I figured the trailer full was like 7 half ton boxes with sides on it after compressing.
We also used the unit for spring clean ups and on large acreages that we had to bag to save trips.

This unit over doubled the amount if spring clean ups and fall clean ups that our 9 grounds guys could do per day. It's mind blowing how much time is wasted by filling up trucks and trailers by hand and what the elimination of multiple trips to dump sites gains you per day.

I was going to say the same thing about big motor small trailer. But if youre filling it only once or twice per day thats pretty good. I fill a 20yd box with an 18hp loader the same, once or twice per day. Awesome machine, free bump.

Yea I would think that much motor would pack them in tight. I can fill my 8ft easy dumper with 4ft sides in about a hour with a 16hp loader. What rating are the axles?

Man that looks right up my alley. However, I have to agree with most that box falls way short of motor potential. If you come down to 7k I would consider the trip up to pick it up. Otherwise the costs involved to come get it out weigh my interest.
