    Has anyone seen these or used one? Looks like it would be great for leaf jobs if you enclosed the dump on the back. The front part of the dump is removable so you can use the full length of the trailer. The black one is 18' and $5700 and the red one is 16' and $4800. I'm not thinking about buying one, but thought I'd pass along what I found while surfing for cool trailer ideas. There's another cool trailer somewhere in the madness on the "Let's Max out the hits" thread, but I don't have time to find it. It was enclosed at the front and dump on the back.

    I found these at www.capstonecommerce.com

    i saw one of those but the front was enclosed. It was a nice trailer but i am getting a landscape bed on an isuzu with a removable beavertail so the flatbed dumps.

    Obviously you need to have the axles at the back like they are but it will make that 18 footer tow like it is 30 ft

    Both of those trailers have gates on the back portion that dumps..am I being ******** or whats really the deal because it seems like it would just dump the stuff on th gate?

    I would assume that the gate is easily removable. I probably won't buy one because I'd rather not have to have a trailer all the time. I think a landscape body with removeable dovetail and dump hoist would be a good alternative, or something similar to the Super Lawn Trucks dump with a landscape body. I just thought it was a cool idea for versatility.

    it is a goose neck and the back gate is a two way gate one in side another one part of the gate opens up to dump and the other folds down in to a ramp to load the skid loader and you can drive the skid loader throw the box and on to the deck go pick up a load of rock dump the rock on load the skidsteer we had it made buy midsota trailer by st. cloud mn no i have not taken any pictures yet

    Thank you!! I have spent that last 2 days thinking about how I need a trailer and a dump insert for my truck to haul baggings and debre. I actually thought up this exact same trailer, and was just gonna make one myself from a standard 8.5 trailer. Now I know where I can just go buy one! Thank you so much for posting about Midsota Trailer! I googled their name, and found this perfect trailer!
