    One thing about this site is when you make a post in a "OLD" thread
    The thread jumps to the top of the page and More people see it.
    It Creates A new Discussion! Who cares if the guy who made this thread already made up his mind!

    I have a Nice Cab over dump truck that holds about 10 dry yards of mulch and a Dump trailer for small jobs that holds 7-8 Yrds With sides.... I love it Because i do 7 Jobs that requires about 30yrds!

    In this day and age im doing anything i can to save on gas so i put them together and make less trips to the yard for mulch! So thats about 20yards in one trip! NICE!!!!!

    I don't know if it's been mentioned but you will also just about need a full ton pickup to pull it.

    Yeah, they're not cheap.

    Really depends on what size u want that determines what truck can pull it.

    ive seen 150's pulling 14 footers
