the shot from the back of the truck into the bed is debris from one whole 14hr day of hedge trimming. It was a long day. Myself doing all the trimming and I had three other guys (friends i hired for the day) raking,dumping and doing cleanup.

I re-wired both trailers and made this junction box. I could have ordered on off Amazon but time was the issue. It works pretty well. I did it for about $15.

Completely torn the skid sprayer down and re-built it. Put new diaphragms, all new hoses and fitting (mostly new fittings) re-plumbed the whole thing. Changed all the oils.

welded the peice of steel to the trailer to give the springs more of an angle, make lifting the trailer much easier.

Thanks. I actually don't remember the height of the side-boards. I know i made them so they only stick above the cab mayb and inch or two. Hopefully next season i wont have a need for the sideboards-A dump trailer is probably going to be my big purchase of the year, i hope.

Thanks, yeah I'm thinking a dump trailer for the spring of 2014 for me. How much mulch can you get in it.

It handles it fine? does it have air bags or extra leaf sprigs on it, or is it stock?
