    i have narrowed down my choices to a Bri-mar DT712LP-12 and a All Pro DT7147T24.The all pro looks to be a better built of the two. But it seems that everybody around here has Bri-mar. so i was looking to what people have to say about the all pro dump trailers

    Dont kow much about all pro, but i can tell you that bri-mar makes a good dump trailer. I have 2 and am very pleased with them. If your going 7 feet wide, i would go with a 14' trailer...

    What about PJ Dump Trailers. I have a 7x14 and love it. Built like a brick.

    the one thing that has me leaning the most to all pro is i can get the 7x14 for 5300 delivered to my house. vrs the brimar 7x14 which is 8 grand. and i haven't looked at pj is the 7x14 dual piston or single.

    i like the idea more of the two pistons over the scissor lift but dont know what the advantage of the scissor lift over the two pistons . and how much did you pay for the 7x14 pj dump if you dont mind me asking. and i like the power up and down on the pj and the all pro dosent have it

    I have heard that scissor lifts are more powerful. That may not be true but I have heard from a few different people that scissors are better than a single or dual piston. I am not just saying that because I own one.

    I believe I paid around $5900 for mine. Around town I could not find them for under $7k for the size I wanted. I bought it from that link I posted earlier and paid an extra $300 for them to ship it to me (Around 300 miles one way) and I still came out ahead. Great great company to work with, didn't even require money until they brought the trailer to me. I will definitaly talk to them the next time I am in the market for any trailer(they sell more than just dump trailers). So far so good with my trailer, I have had it loaded pretty good a few times and it doesn't even hesitate when it dumps. The whole trailer is rock solid, only down side to that is it is heavy(I think around 4500# empty). Good luck with your purchase, what will you be towing the trailer with?

    I think most of the trailer are heavy duty I have three different types American steel , Ringo , and another i can remember now .
    I like double pistons . barn gate rear door C type hitch mount with bolt holes , High headboard in front 36" , Led lites , 6 tie downs in bed , removable wood sides , water proof tarp on roller , grease fitting every wear , bearing buddies on wheels, steel tool /battery box
    I like aluminum equipment ramps from Ebay . I just slide them under the machine when we transport , Leave them in the yard most of the time. I have 10' and 12' dumps . John

    My trailer has everything you mentioned, except the double pistons.

    Which ramps are you talking about?
