    Just needed something to keep the clippings out of the truck bed and not have to unload them. Plus no one around here has them and we’re really trying to stand out this year. They are also building us a custom dump trailer and if this works out well we will be ordering 4 more in the fall. Also looking into getting a 15yd terrain pro m3 formerly a mulch mule for this spring. The manufacturer is bringing up a demo on the 25th that were taking it to the Landscape supply store and gonna run it through its paces.

    I drooled quite a bit walking around there lot. A lot of very cool custom trailers that he builds.

    How long did you have to wait? That was my biggest problem, he told me 3 months and it ended up being 6.

    16 weeks he says, but for what we want and the fact no one else in our area will even consider building one of these, it’s worth the wait. Tried to line his pockets with extra cash to move us to the front but he didn’t accept.

    And yeah how is the Michigan/Indiana are the biggest in the country for trailers but no one will Even consider building these trailers. Mind boggling

    Even stranger is he's in the middle of nowhere, small town of a few hundred people. Looks like a pretty cool place to live with a slower pace, lots of hunting possibilities...deer and yote.

    Yeah, I guess he’s dealing with some pretty bad flooding there right now

    The CFO was showing me pics on the BookFace. Looked up one of the towns and saw it was only a few miles from him.

    I wonder how well these will dump. When I dump my trucks or trailer I have to pull forward a bit to get all the debris to slide out.

    Those side dumps work great when dumping leaves or grass. If you have sticks it slides halfway out than you have to pull it the rest of the way.
