    I have numerous trailers that hold equipment. Well, I recently rented an enclosed trailer to get a feel for that type of trailer. Great trailer, lock up at nite and go home, no need to unload everything (that is if you leave your trailers out) everything is always in the trailer but one downfall - we bag a lot of lawns. No place for clippings.

    Now I ran across a web site, www.debrissytem.com. Neat set up where I can dump into the side, lift it over and it dumps itself. Are there more of these trailers out there from other companies? Also do any of you guys own one or every use one.

    I need to stay with a trailer for all our trucks are used for snow plowing in the winter. Thanks for the input!

    why cant you put the clippings in your pickup bed? that what I do. I added 2 foot sides using wood, used chrome bolts, and painted the wood black, and it looks sharp and can hold lots of grass, leaves, and 5 yards of mulch :)

    The web site you listed is not valid. Do you have another? :waving:

    There was a guy on here with that type of truck. He had great pictures but do you think I can find him or his truck? Anyone else seen them pic's? If so let me know where! Thanks.

    Reason for no clippings in truck, we had bodies that dump but we also have had back problem issues in the past with unloading all that grass plus the time to fill the truck, go dump, there are times when we dump a truck 2 - 3 times a day. Other times dumps are full sticks, other debris that we can't unload at our local grass dump. That requires another trip to our local tree dump. Pain in the axx.
