    I was thinking about this on my dump trailer and look what I find.......I'm not the first!

    Anybody got some pricing info? I'm still awaiting to hear back.

    Those things look great, it would only be worth it with two containers, that way you could runs loads of fill and debris to the dump while your guys are loading the other one. Also in the winter you could do a dumpster service for contractors. Let us know what the price is.

    I have a system being put on my new truck. Working in DC today with my Chevy and dump trailer I ran across the idea then searched Yahoo tonight and found this. I'm going to guess $12,000 for a trailer + containers.

    The hoist for my truck was almost $11,000 with a 15k pound winch.

    What kind of truck did you put it on? Been wondering about pricing of these systems.

    International 4300.............do a search for "construction" in this forum and my post will prob be the first one displayed "International........construction post".....look at about page 9 or 10

    Hoist was about $11,000...........then the cans are gonna be about $3,000+ each..........sounds about right, I don't have the numbers with me, maybe more.

    May also want to look at Ggtonline.com and their roll off trailers....I spoke with a salesman there....Trailer and 2 boxes for $13,400 (14 K trailer, Max in box payload of 11K....Can get gooseneck model too for more capacity.....Boxes are $3200 if bought in 2's.....I like their containers cause they have a flat bottom
    (some containers have narrow bottoms and taper outward then up....to me this would impede holding lots of wide things neatly (side by side)....for instance bunches of appliances etc....

    check ebay for All Pro Trailers in Florida. They have them and I think pricing starts at around $8000 or so for a 12-14 footer.

    We bought a 7x14 13,200gvw standard dump trailer for $5000 in december that seems to be pretty solid.

    Try Nedland Industries. I have been tossing the idea around for awhile. I have seen these in person and they look pretty nice. I really think that I am going to outfit my F650 with a hooklift and Nedland does not offer a hook system. I think the price for them is around $13,000.00
