    I am going to have some extra cash around $3,000 on a clean-up job. I was thinking about converting this debris trailer i have into a dump trailer myself. I generally haul 15 yards of grass clippings, leafs, mulch etc with this trailer. I am more concerned of overloading the Dump Pro than anything it's only rated for 1.5 tons. If their made from HD steel? I'm sure a stronger winch (after I burned up the original):laugh: would increase it's dumping capacity. Anyway any thoughts besides getting a "real" dump trailer please.

    How are you unloading that trailer now? I've been trying to minimize time/effort at the dump myself.

    with a large pallet in the front of the trailer attached to a tow strap that is hooked onto a wheel loaded, and it's pulled off the trailer.
