    Question Roll-Off Dump Trailer

    Anyone using a roll-off dump trailer to haul their SCUT? Looking at a lot of options and the idea of having interchangeable beds (dump body, flatbed, etc) is really intriguing. I just wonder how well my little 1 series (1025r) will hold up to being tilted at a 45 degree angle and slid off the trailer onto the ground. The benefits are no ramps, easy to haul different equipment around. Drawbacks are high tilt, more securing of equipment necessary, and added cost to whole package. Also, anyone tried to put one in the tub since they are not flat bottomed?

    Thanks for your insight!

    do u watch tractor time with tim any on u-tube? he bought a full tilt flat bed trailer from some company out around him-or out of his state i should say. i'm pretty sure it has side boards with itbut -anyways he made a video about it-showed what all it can do-look it up. see what ya think about that.

    my neighbor has a 14 ft dump-it came with ramps-no way i'dl want to haul or load my 2520 in it. just me-ok

    Oh yeah I watch every TTWT episode. Better than prime time television. He drives his off the trailer though, I was looking at the roll off where you actually slide the whole bin to the ground.

    ahh- i think i know what kind ur referring to now. they have a big hook like that unloads either a dump bed-or could do a flat bed. am i right now-i have seen them on u-tube-some. but i haven't seen anybody that uses them for what ur referring about--like loading or unloading ur tractor. will keep my eye out for ya-ok.

    That is the same concept as the PLS (Palletized Loading System) trucks the Army uses. I have seen a lot of stuff loaded on those type of pallets. If you have it secure then it's no big deal to put a tractor on one, make sure you invest in good straps. I can only imagine how much this trailer you are talking about costs.

    If you don't want ramps, just find a tilt deck that has stake pockets so you can also use it for other purposes. Years ago, I used to have a set up like this. It worked great for hauling cars and when I put the sides in the stakes, for hauling fire wood.

    Think if you install a nice winch- loading and unloading would be easy.

    Those are very handy. Be sure it has the big axles and I wouldn't settle for less than the gas powered hyd pump. A battery powered one will take much longer and It'll be hard on the pump and batteries. With a gas powered one you'll be able to run a hyd winch too. Unless you have other uses for this I'd bet you'll be into it for around 15-20k on the light end depending how big you go.

    My neighbor has a little one that's bumper pull. It's pretty slick

    I'm a little surprised that the folks that make the Switch-N-Go truck beds don't have a trailer division. It'd be nice to be able to switch up the trailer bed depending on needs at the moment.

    A combination between the Switch-N-Go system and a hydraulic ground lift system like the AirTow would be awesome.

    Having trouble seeing how you'll get more function out of this than what I have? If I had some tall sides for mine, wouldn't I have all the features you are wanting? It would seem to me that removable sides are easier to store and handle than removable beds.

    If you have enough room for a removable bed, why not buy two trailers? A 16-18ft flatbed, and a 10-12' dump? I just didn't have space to store two trailers, and I couldn't really handle the weight of a 16-18' bumper pull dump trailer with built-in sides.

    Interesting concept....

    My thoughts with the roll off was the ability to drop the box on the ground. Lower height to load such as a refuse container, also I could strap down implements on one flat bed then drop it at a site go back for the tractor and drop it.

    Kinda a moot point though. Cost of this concept turns out to be far more than I am willing to spend. One roll off and trailer was almost $12k, add a package of four more roll offs and it was over $20 grand.

    I have seen two 16 ft GN dumps go for under $6k used this week alone so probably going to hold out for that. Would love to do an 18 or 20 but not sure I want triple axle or tandem duals. Lot of tire costs.
