    I have the Bri-Mar low profile dump trailer with a rear mesh ramp. The ramp swings down to load equipment and swings upward to dump materials. For me, it saved the extra insurance on a dump truck and still carries my equipment. Cost me $4400 and has a 10000 GVW (about a 7500 lb. payload).

    I have a couple friends in this area that use them. They're a great investment, and I've looked at them many of times. Just make sure you have a truck that can handle towing extreemly heavy payloads, and make sure the trailer has heavy duty breaks on both axles.

    Sorry about that last post. I was thinking of a dump trailer instead of the EZ Dumper. Oops! On the other hand a dump trailer is also a good way to go, or you can buy one of the hydrolic kits which turns a regular truckbed into a dumpbed without using bed inserts.
