    Okay well guys we are about to invest in a dump trailer. We plan to use it for Fall cleanups then also in late spring switch to mulch hauling...

    I would like the trailer to have a tarp pulled TIGHT across the top yet also be able to load mulch later in the spring..

    How does everyone else set up their dumps

    sideboards in the spring

    leave box in the fall. vac goes on the front of the trailer. that way it can be dumped without removing the vac setup.

    If your spreading bulk mulch you might want a deck over style trailer so your bed is higher than your wheelbarrows are. Makes shoveling mulch into them easier.

    Thanks for the info guys!
    All of our bulk mulch we use loaders and skids on so that wont be a big deal!
    Interms of the fall cleanup rig: We plan to have the loader on the front as Tizzy said. And have buggies holding the vented tarp over the top. This will be nice in the spring because we will only have to take the loader and the buggies off if we want to load mulch!
