    The problem with trailer is you can't get them into places where a truck can go. To pull a 16,000lb gvw trailer you need a decent truck to do it with.

    Yea it isn't a Dump trailer, It is a roll off with a winch to pull it up and I would say it probably holds around 10-12 yards it actually rolls off the trailer, it even has a tarp roller!

    Around here you would need a class A cdl to tow one of those ! You might want to check into it .

    it's just gotta be tough to do business on the east coast, tough on Diesel's, tough on disposal of grass clippings, and a class A CDL to pull 16,000 GTWR. In Tennessse you can tow up to 28,000 GVWR without a CDL, No emission testing on diesels, Yard debris & grass clippings are welcome at landscape recycle centers for compost.
