Truck n Trailer n Equipment pics Lets See Them

Like it says lets see pics of what you usually drive around on a normal day, show. how you have your stuff setup. Just interested to see how others are running there setup, looking for a different way to haul equipment around and still be able to take loads to dump. I have a 3/4 pickup no dump. I would like to haul away brush and leaves, top soil and mulch loads etc. Looking for ideas, and just curious as to what your all running

Get a dump trailer with landscape gate, I can haul and dump and run my mower up the gate and load it.

Thats what i would like, and also figure out a way to carry the mower in the back of the truck along with a load in the trailer. Just not sure how i want to set it up so that i dont have to disconnect trailer all the time to unload mower...

do this, get a 12' dump trailer mine is a 10 and a bit small with my mower, anyways with the 12' dump trailer with landscape gate build a wood partition on hinges and a lock in piece but leave a spot in the dump big enough for your mower, then you have a place for your mower(not in the back of your truck) and a spot for leaves and grass and then unlatch the partition and take off the mower and dump all the debris, build it up high enough and you can hold quite a bit. Make the partition removable so you can load up with mulch and other stuff. Just a thought, if I had the 12' I would do this, considering doing it with my 10'.

Is that a 12ft dump with 3 foot metal sides? How much higher is your wood sides? I just bought one and am wondering how high to go ontop of the 3 foot sides it has.
