I got it for 2k if I hadn't had known the guy it probably would have been 2500 I will probably have that much in when I am done though I am painting it replacing broken lights jack might buy a roll up tap etc. He never cleaned it and kept it outside so its a bit rusty. It was a pretty good deal not as good as you got your trailer for though!

Whatever Jared, I just don't understand what the difference is because with a trailer you shovel and wheelbarrow the mulch off the trailer to the site and you don't stain the concrete if you are using dyed mulch. With a dump truck you are still going to have to shovel and wheelbarrow the mulch from the pile and if you don't put down a tarp you are going to have to clean up the mess. It really just doesn't make sense to me but then again I guess according to you I'm an idiot who knows nothing....

No way will it cost 2000 to fix it up 2k is a lot for a jack some lights and paint, even if you re-painted the whole thing and went through all the hydralics it would probably only be $600.


What kinda weight can that thing hold? Looks like 5 lug 3500 axles.

Most of the time it will get shoveled out of here unless I am delivering for someone or I have guys shoveling and I am going to pick up more. But the big thing is with the ramp I can roll a wheel barrow up and also this can hold more wieght than you put in a pickup when you are dealing with topsoil stone etc.

you will learn to tip it up as you go and shovel into two wheelbarrows less work than completely shoveling a flat dump. Oh and remember one yard of topsoil weighs between 2200-2400 lbs.
