    In some areas it's easier to buy bags. Less work too. You just bring a bag to the area drop it and thats it. No handling, shoveling, unloading, wheel barrow it over. Costs a bit more, but customer pays for it.

    Bags are the way to go down here bulk mulch is just a bunch of garbage in my area. Plus do you see me driving any dump trucks?

    Yes it has ramps that slide under the body. The payload is 18,900lbs so yes you can. I carry my JCB 190t in it but the best is our Kubota 161-3 Excavator. You can clear areas, load out, and recover the machinery with one trailer. You have to watch out about trying to put dirt in it. Its a "trash trailer". Great for demo and land clearing. The tarp is a Donavon that I haven't welded on yet. It is one piece though.

    what do you mean by trash trailer and watching when putting dirt in it?

    This kind of trash. It has to have the weight distributed out pretty even or it has a hard time lifting. I hauled about 6 yards of sand/clay and cought a time trying to get it lifted. Its just the way the trailer is set up. We all call trailers that are for demo or clearing "trash trailer".
