    So here's the thing. I've been stalking this website and posts for a few days now and it's time to post! I live in Canada and here we get a fair amount of snow. I'm looking to buy a dump truck or dump trailer and I'm stumped! I know this question has been asked but I'd rather get answers for my situation than someone elses and apply it to mine.

    I need a new plow truck this season as it is being added into our service list. Also, I like being able to leave a trailer at a site and leave to do another estimate or bring another crew to mow. Also, I can just put the skid steer in buying into my dump trailer. I hate the fact that I have to buy another truck since my 99 f150 wont cut it... also, with snow and salt I can put salt into my dump truck with a salter attachment and go instead of getting a whole another salter...

    I am also wondering how much it is to insure my dump truck in canada per month

    Hope to buy one soon ;D:cool2:

    Both, But the trailer cost less, hauls more, less maintenance just to start. A dump trailer is at the top of my list.
