    Been having a lot of calls to do mulch and some landscapes. I didnt have a dumep so a friend was helping me with his. I decided to start hunting for a used dump trailer. Well i found one. It is an E-Z Dumper E-Z-6812LP 10 footer. 1989. So yes it is old and has rust. It also has a rust hole in the floor of the bed. I know some guys that weld so i can get it fixed cheap. i paid. $1500 bucks. I will post some pics tomorrow after i pick it up.

    the high sides and canopy is what caught my eye. I will have to use a vented tarp come leaf season. I am buying a 16 horse Lesco leaf loader from a friend.

    That's not bad looking, if it holds up half way, I think they run 6-8 grand new?

    used it today on a clean up. Sure beats forking the stuff out of a bed of a truck
