Like too small? Not really for what I do. It can get to big at times, and for that I plan to get a 1 ton and get rid of the dump insert in my 2500.

Carries 8.5 tons legaly and 9.5 if I get rid of the all season body for a standard one. What is kind of nice is that 9 ft body is hard to overload. Full is right about perfect weight wise. If you really mound it you can get it about 1 ton overweight. Its good for someone like me who is always tempted to push it.

Bought as is in first pic. Some paint, new light & wire kit, floor, lid w/locks on cage. Used extra plywood to fill in welded angles on side. Removed angle from tongue & mounted my diamond plate toolbox.

Glad i don't need a box to lock everything down out here. This is my small trailer. 12x6. I can get through the whole day without emptying clippings. Just toss the sideboards up and dump up to 6 hopperfulls on the front. I compost them in my pasture. This 12' trailer is nearly too long on some of my properties on the lake. One i have to back down the access road over 600 feet as there is no turnaround. Many of my accounts are rural so the blowers sit in the bed as there is little to blow. The only fuel can i carry is a 2.5 gallon for the trimmers and blowers. The mower holds 8 gallons of diesel and i go 2 plus days between fuel ups. i fuel at the shop.

Stuff is not locked down while working, I don't have garage so box gets locked when sitting in driveway & cable with lock through walkbehinds, 21" mower & couple wraps around string trimmer shaft & trimmer rack til there is no slack left in cable.
