    I am selling my dump trailer and leaf vac as I need a bigger trailer and didnt use the vac as much as planned.

    The trailer:
    2012 6x10 Brimar 610 LE
    1 piece gate
    8 D rings bolted to the frame
    Custom made leaf vac mount added to the front of trailer.
    Tires in good shape
    Lights and brakes work
    Replaced the original jack with a nicer bull dog one.
    EZ Lube axles have been greased regularly
    All frame points lubed regularly
    Battery holds a charge as good as new
    Still has almost all its paint inside the bed.


    The vac:
    2011 Billy Goat DL1801V
    18hp Briggs and Stratton Vanguard
    Recoil and Electric Start (Electric start never used)
    10'x10" Hose (in good shape, not holes)
    Less than 10 Hours on Vac. I used about 10 times last fall then put it away for the winter.
    Oil and filter changed, fuel stabilized, air filter cleaned and the unit was washed before it was put away.
    Still looks brand new.

    Comes with 4.5" leaf box sides and a set of 30" 2x8 sides which are on it now. I will also throw in the tarp and rope that I used for the top last year.

    Here is the thread I posted pic of the setup in. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=363378 If anyone is interested, I can get current pics of the trailer and vac.

    Asking $7500 for everything. I will not separate. I need the trailer until I finish mulching which should be early may.

    Make me an offer. I would consider trades for a 6x12 12k or 14k dump trailer with scissor hoist and ramps.

    If you fill the box all the way up (14 yards) with wet leaves it is probably about 8K or so. If they are dry, I can pack the box full and it barely feels heavy. I have never really weighed it though. It does tend to get a bit heavy on the tongue from the vac and load. You could always just not fill it up all the way. I think it weighs about 1800lbs empty plus 300lbs for the vac. So if you want to keep it under 7k that would leave 4900 lbs of capacity so probably 10 yards of leaves would be fine.

    Also sometimes, I get in the box and jump on it to pack it down some more which also makes it heavier.

    Opps. I just looked and you are right. Weighs about 2400 lbs empty. I mixed it up with one of my other trailers.
