    Thats awesome. I want one.

    That would also be good for someone with a E-250 or 2500/3500Van and have to bag grass

    Great idea, but not very practical IMO. The trailer is rated at 15K gvw but that rear gate looks pretty flimsy. you would need a very HD truck for that with 4K lbs on the tongue. You would fast approach a CDL license if you had anyting in the tow vehicle too. Seems a little dangerous for a 2+5/16 ball too; I know I would certainly prefer a pintle.

    I could just see a guy running down the road with that trailer with 3 yards of rock in the dump and a 10,000 lb mini ex on the back. I could see how it would work great for a mowing crew as clipings are light, but you start putting dirt/rock in the dump and the front tires will be lifting off the ground with all that tounge weight.

    That was neat, do they make a side dump for on 1 ton trucks etc. I thought i seen a side dump on something else and couldnt remember what it was.

    They make a gooseneck version to. I would only buy it for a lawn/ leaf cleanups.

    I saw those too. It was a side dumping mason body with a van type cab. The first thing I would do is swap out that ball for a pintle too. And I don't know where you guys get loaded, but the yards I go to only have 5-7t front end loaders. They wouldn't even try to load that trailer.

    i emailed them for a price quote a few months ago, i forget what it was but i do remember it being very reasonable for what your getting for a trailer
