    OP, I've been drooling over this bad boy for months, but have never gotten a price quote. Heard rumors that they can go for $12k plus. Just love the all in one dump and trailer aspect though. Does anyone out there have any experience with this type trailer?

    I saw it here one day, searching for dump trailers. It's called the side dump float trailer. A buddy of mine told me he knew a guy in Texas that had one just like it (maybe not the exact same manufacturer) and believed he paid somewhere around $12k for it. That killed it for me, so I never called. Can't stop thinking about it though. Seems like the perfect open trailer. http://www.berkelmanswelding.on.ca/

    i think if you mounted a 6ft easy dump insert sideways on a trailer you might save a bunch of cash and it wouldnt be that hard.$$$$

    Yeah, I'm seriously considering it. Gonna look at all my options. I found another one just now: http://www.equipmenttraderonline.co...A-MANUFACTURING-VERSA-DUMP-SIDE-DUMP-92060825 It's 20ft, and $7495 plus $150 shipping. I saw where they'll make one up to 22 ft. Gonna call them and get an estimate. When I bought my 16 footer I was just mowing/trimming/blowing which works perfect. But now I'm getting more and more into landscaping and need a dump something bad.

    I swear this thread is gonna make me go into debt. ;) Thanks M. Rascoe & Sons. Your right. That easy dump looks awesome too. Probably a lot more cost efficient.

    I saw one of these here in NY and I thought it was a great idea for grass clippings. But then I starting thinking about it and I decided that a 1ton dump truck would fit my needs better. Its nice to be able to go get a load of dirt with out having to pull a 22'-24' trailer along with me. It also lets you dump in tight areas where you cant get a trailer in. But i've got to say they sure look great and down the road I might add one on..
