    I'd get the 14 just so you have some other uses for it, hauling debris is great when you can push a button to unload it.
    I forget the brand, but there's a company in NC makes them.

    what does machine + forks meaure in length? I would get 16'.....I've got one for my T190

    you need more space then you think.......don't forget you need room to move for chains/binders and the times you'll need to haul something else + equip

    I would get the biggest one your truck can handle and the biggest you can afford. I would look into a 16' one. You cna never have a dump trailer that is too big. I have a 10' with 6' sides and it is still way too smale for me. If I could do it all again I'd go with a 16' with 6' sides.

    I would go with the longest one too. Bri Mar makes a good one.
