Probably not too much considering what a new dump trailer runs. 

 

I will say that he needs to change his ad from "lawn" to "compact tractor."  No lawn tractor ever has remote hydraulics.

Ben ,My JD 317 and 140 both have remote rear hydraulics for the 3pt to use. I think it would raise the trailer OK, but I could be wrong.. I have been before..

Boy, that would work fantastic hooked to my Bolens. Nice looking trailer. Kinda spendy, imo.

That's true, I forget about those kind of tractors.  I was meaning remotes in the farm tractor world, where you have quick release plugs.  However, you're right, I guess whats on your Deeres can certainly be considered remotes!

I've got plans for a trailer pretty much just like this... but a little smaller... and less over built. I'm figuring an 4x8 bed, with light tube frame but wood bed. Stake pockets so I can take the wood sides off. (4) 18x9.5-8 turf tires. I would like to make the frame stout enough to handle a hydraulic ram/tilt like this one though. And I would like to have the alxes pivot like this one.

 

Thanks for the link!
