Hi everyone,

I've been working around my house, and i have come to realize that even though i own a dump truck, dump trailer, and 2 pick up trucks.....very rarely do i have somewhere to collect clipping and branches from around my own house when i want to.

I'm looking for suggestions, makes, brands, of small dump trailers. Something for off highway use, and i can tow behind my JD 2305. I think tandem axle would be nicer than single to keep some weight off the tractor, but i can always compare prices.

King Kutter has a nice trailer, a bit more than i wanna spend, but still nice.

thanks!

I saw a thread where one was built that looked similar to this, trying to remember where it was. May have been a little smaller, he had rear tires off a GT on it. I think it was MTF, but not sure. He even scaled down a dump mechanism to work on it. Pretty neat build.

The last time I was in Costco they had a really nice "ATV trailer". It was single axle but was heavy duty with ATV type tires on it had a poly dump box and the price was good. It may be worth a look if you are near a Costco. You would have to have quite a bit of tongue weight to bother a 2305 especially if you have a loader on it. For yard work one of the ATV trailers might do the job. I would like to have one myself. It would be easier to maneuver than a larger trailer which can be a consideration if you have narrow trails or walkways.

More weight on the tractor = more traction.
Surely a good basic, single axle, tipping trailer would be the best value.
Do you have a spool on the back of your tractor to tip it with?

after hauling a lot of trailers with my truck, i can very much agree it will give traction, but that much weight on the tongue is not what i want. i would rather spread out the weight over 2 axles, i always have 4 wheel drive for traction.
