    Im in the market for a dump trailer.

    I want a dump trailer for hauling debris, tree waste, Storm Cleanup etc...
    maybe throw some mulch or soil in it.

    i dont want to go too small and short myself.

    I found a lady sellin off her husbands dump trailer after he had a heart attack.

    Its 8'x20' diamond dump, dual tandem axles, hydraulic dump, with tarp system. She was asking $5000.00 and i offered $3500(she accepted it)

    should i go for it?

    also lokkin at getting a used Bobcat T190

    Its a 10ton dually, gooseneck I'd hope?

    Most of those I've seen they set up to high to load a skidsteer in, but if it's got ramps, then go for it!

    Eh, if you wanted strictly for hauling material, yeah, but to haul equipment I wouldnt, you'd have some really steep ramps or you'd have make a dovetail of somesort. You can get a new decent 5 or 7ton for around $3k

    Looks like it might be a little overkill. But thats a good price imo.
