    I was wondering if anyone has experience with this landscape/dump trailer combo? Really like the idea. It seems like there would be a lot of tongue weight with where the wheels are placed.

    If you get a ramp gate on back its the perfect setup?
    The down side is you still need a truck to tow.:waving:

    Yes. They are around $6,500. They have a new one on Craigslist in Allentown PA. Only thing that bothers me are the wheels that far back.

    How big is the dump on the 20 ft. ? 10ft or 12 ft. Just curious.

    This was discussed on here before. The concern was tongue weight as the dump would be empty most of the time. I guess the front of the dump folds down but that still limits you to just a side gate or a pita door, pull out ramp combo. The empty weight has got to be high which will make it into a tire eater. Just seems like a white elephant. Like the open trailers with the small enclosed shed on the front.

    Just bumping this thread up. Anyone else run this kind of trailer? Or anyone know who else that manufactures them? D&K trailers, Midsota trailers, SLEequipment also has them. These trailers seem to be more popular out West.
