    bought a service truck for $1250, found a flat bed and hoist at a junkyard for $400, spent $800 in metal and wood, and a month of evenings marrying the dump and building the box, and had it painted for $750- signage was $520

    I've heard of those Honda WB's, but I've never actually seen one. How is it?

    Nice stuff. The dump bed has a wood floor?

    the side walls are 3/4 pressure treated plywood, the floor is diamond plate.

    2 bros- the honda is ok, but not awsome. I prefer the pistol grip style bars. I bought it for $750 and Immediately spent $175 on carb. and tuneup, so the price is right, but I've currently got it on CL

    MIJ- it saves me a lot of back and shoulder ache but its 7X8X3 and I already fill it in two days of maint.

    I neeeed a bigger trailer, I built that one from a 2 place watercraft trailer and tapered the box to match for the challenge of doing so, when I could have made it sraight.
