well we're friendly with all the guys at the local pit where we get our materials, so they think theyre doing me a favor when they overload my dump trailer and call it "Saturday Morning Special" yea i pay barely anything for the huge load, and i didnt mind it until this past saturday. went to dump the load of topsoil at the jobsite. Crash Bang! haha something like, maybe it was Bang Crash!. Well anyways, the load was too heavy for the frame. hydraulic piston popped the welded bracket right off and dimpled the frame. So then i had to unload 7 yards of topsoil with a shovel by hand, wasn't too bad. Just got used to being lazy and dumping it and moving it with the tractor. So then the bed wouldnt go down..... we had to very carefully take apart the piston without smashing our skulls under the dump body. quick saturday morning job turned into an all day affair. the trailer is so old it might not really be worth it to repair it. looks like it might be an excuse to buy something new. yes!
