Carry more weight. Carry my Skidsteer and tractor at same time. Allows me to carry larger Skidsteer plus sandbags.

Can your truck pull both at the same time?

I wouldn't worry about a skid we pulled a 770 on bumper pull all summer with a gas struck and it was fine.

They put a dual piston setup on it after that.

You obviously dont get it. You overloaded the truck/piston. What you overload it with has nothing to do with it. 5 tons of feathers weighs the same as 5 tons of bricks.

All I was saying is it was overloaded. No doubt about that. Soil weighs more than mulch that was my point. You put 30 yards of spoils in a bed it's going to weigh more than 30 yards of dry mulch

One thing that worries me is the price of insurance for a dump. Our rates suck down south already.

Would you be able to use the mini x in your new business? That would be a nice addition to the fleet for the company

The mini x was a hunk of junk. Had 4k hrs on it and was beat to hell. I may have the dump trailer sold this week.

Got my eye on a 35' +5' dual tandem gooseneck. And I plan to treat myself to a few upgrades to my dually(3" lift, 35" mud tires, ranchhand front bumper)
