    i traded a 00' 52" scag turf tiger for this dump trailer.
    needs a lil work but , it dumps and the floor is solid.

    plan is new tires, a lil welding, new bracing for the sides and paint. gunna be perfect for doing cleanups/tree removal and getting soil/mulch


    removed the old rear doors, side bracing today. bringing it to my local trailer repair place in the next few days to get the rest of the trailer checked out.

    Holy crap that thing is a beast. Maybe this winter when things slow down you could strip it down, sand blast it and repaint it. Look like brand new then.
