    Much easier to just dump in your trailer. Don't have to back all the way into your truck, or remove equipment to get to your truck, and you don't have to unhook to dump.

    Well, if you have room in your trailer, then this trailer wouldn't be for you would it?
    But some need to dump in the truck bed because they don't have room in thier trailers.

    I don't bag, so this isn't for me. I was simply passing the info along to those that might be interested.

    That is a pretty neat setup. I have that same trailer minus the front gate. It looks like it would be easy to add the front gate. If you had a dump insert in your truck that would be a real nice setup. Then you could back right up into your truck and dump ,then take the truck to the dump. Sure beats having to throw everything into the truck by hand. Thanks for the info Gogetter that gives me another project idea.

    Here's the good thing about dumping into your trailer. You back your Walker up in your trailer and dump. Then when you're ready to unload your trailer you just pull your load out with a cable. At the place I dump they have concrete blocks you can tie onto and simply pull your truck forward and walla, you've unloaded your grass. Just a lot simpler and cheaper than a dump bed. IMO

    The angle of the front ramp is way too steep and short to drive a mower up. It was designed for ATV's.
