    Thanks yeah it wasnt used to much
    I got it for 2k if I hadn't had known the guy it probably would have been 2500 I will probably have that much in when I am done though I am painting it replacing broken lights jack might buy a roll up tap etc. He never cleaned it and kept it outside so its a bit rusty. It was a pretty good deal not as good as you got your trailer for though!
    takes yeah mulch topsoil stone etc. It will be nice for hauling junk and scrap too.
    Thanks

    Whatever Jared, I just don't understand what the difference is because with a trailer you shovel and wheelbarrow the mulch off the trailer to the site and you don't stain the concrete if you are using dyed mulch. With a dump truck you are still going to have to shovel and wheelbarrow the mulch from the pile and if you don't put down a tarp you are going to have to clean up the mess. It really just doesn't make sense to me but then again I guess according to you I'm an idiot who knows nothing....

    No way will it cost 2000 to fix it up 2k is a lot for a jack some lights and paint, even if you re-painted the whole thing and went through all the hydralics it would probably only be $600.


    What kinda weight can that thing hold? Looks like 5 lug 3500 axles.

    Most of the time it will get shoveled out of here unless I am delivering for someone or I have guys shoveling and I am going to pick up more. But the big thing is with the ramp I can roll a wheel barrow up and also this can hold more wieght than you put in a pickup when you are dealing with topsoil stone etc.

    you will learn to tip it up as you go and shovel into two wheelbarrows less work than completely shoveling a flat dump. Oh and remember one yard of topsoil weighs between 2200-2400 lbs.
