  • Dump Trailer

    Here's a home project I did late fall/early winter. I put it on the WE BUILD but I wanted to put all my pictures here. It is an 5' by 10' dump trailer. It has two Rockwell American axles that are rated for 3500 lbs. Gas powered hydraulics and hydraulic disc brakes with a Titan surge brake controller. The trailer work extremely well and hauls very nice also even when loaded.

        I wish that it would let me put more than 5 pictures each time.

                Very nice, that work looks real good. That is a nice size trailer.

                  Love it. I've been wanting one about that size. Do you rent it?

                    Looks great but do those doors open to the side? what's holding those doors from swinging back while dumping?

                      No, I don't rent my trailer because like anything else it will come back broken. The chain holds the door back when she dumps, so far it hasn't fallen out.

                        I've been having thoughts of a similar size trailer for my Bobcat skid steer.
                        Haul it to the property, load it, dump it (using the bobcat), then haul it all home.
                        I had electric hydraulics in mind. How did it come out on cost?
                        Those type trailers have caused me to re-think building my own as they are quite expensive. Or at least the ones I've looked at.
                        I would maybe have to make mine a touch wider and possibly wider too.
                        I really like your straightforward heavy duty design.

                          Metal was $1500 , the sides are 1/8 and the floor is 3/16. The total cost was about $3200 with everything.
