    After years of back breaking work I am in the market for a dump trailer. Im looking at a few but Im needing at least 12k gwr. I would be using it quite a bit and maxing it out pretty often. Which do you guys recommend? The scissor lift or the dual cylinder lift style. I do know that I will never get a deckover, they look ignorant. Other than that Im new to dumps. Thanks in advance.

    Ok ok its pretty shiney in those pics because it was brand new. It has gotten dirty since, I swear. Oh and it raises higher than that, Im just on a steep incline.
