I can get the same one with 5200lb axles for $3200. Just saying man. But in houston trailers are alot cheaper. There is even a guy here who makes his own (not very high quality but they get the job done) and he sells a 16' landscape trailer with 4' sides, trimmer rack, front box, heavy jack, and 3500lb axles for $2000.
ive since wisend up to this kinda thing, i cant count the expensive mistakes. But it only stays a mistake if you dont learn from it

Man why do you need a dump? You have a trailer with 4' sides. Just get a pull off and save alot of $$$

for hauling dirt and mulch, and pulling off is strictly forbidden at our brush site, or are you referring to that system that pushes stuff out off the trailer?

Man even for mulch and dirt we just shovel it off in wheelbarrows. A pull off is when you have a chain wrapped around a large limb in the front of the trailer, or a pallet, and then you run it along the bottom of the trailer and you tie it to the guys loader bucket and he pulls it all off. Thats the way we do it here.

We do work smart but you gotta work hard too. I'm not going to spend thousands of dollars when there is another means of doing it that will save alot of money and make me just as much.
