    Dump trailer or another deck-over?

    I'm in the market for another trailer. On and off, I've wished I had a dump trailer. But, I can use a 2nd deck-over trailer to haul hay off the field (ahead of the rain ) and moving another piece of equipment in convoy.

    Questions about dump trailer issues. Like reliability of the pump system and colder weather use (lighter wt. hyd fluid)? Also, I've noticed that there's alot of 10'-12'-14' trailers available but, just a few 16's and never to be seen 18'-20' footers. Why is that - besides just higher cost?

    Are the longer trailers harder to dump safely? Twist the frame; tip over more easily if not on pretty flat area?

    If I bought a dump trailer, I'd like to use it to haul the 110TLB in it to where ever I was working. It sure would be easier with at least an 18'er.

    Any observations appreciated.

    I'm just tuning in because I'm having the same debate with myself. I'd REALLY like to have a 16'-18' dump trailer... I think. Finding them around here is like finding hen's teeth.

    A dump feature is really nice when you need that option.
    The newer hydraulic dump trailers in the 16' - 18' and above can be ordered with a dual ram system, which eliminates any of the unstable characteristics of a single ram mounted in the center.
    Expensive? I think so, but, you get what you pay for, and the dual ram systems are safer than the singles.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    I have a 16' load trail low pro dump that I haul the 110 around it. The reason you don't see larger ones frequently is the weight. My trailer empty weigh about 5k+. Another issue is load placement, it's not fantastic for the 110 and that's with me taking off the loader bucket and placing it in the truck bed.

    It's a pita to tie down the tractors with the limited space also. I trailered the 110 back from N Carolina to Conn and the trailer did the job but if I end up hauling the tractor more a deck over gn will be at the top of the list.

    Thanks. Did not consider a double ram configuration. Definitely more stable.

    Matt, I thought about locking the loader in the up position with the boom arm (safety block) and keeping the bucket on. I don't suppose another 2' feet would give you enough room to leave the bucket down and just hang more of the backhoe over the rear doors? Maybe load too unbalanced?

    Does your trailer have tie-downs inside the box? Just saw a good suggestion here on GTT to tack some extruded wire mesh down on the metal floor to make loading and unloading much safer.

    Dump trailer or another deck-over?

    I'm your man......!!!! I just went through this.

    I just grabbed a loadtrail gooseneck 16' single-tridem in may of 2014, with a deckover. I love it. I've not put anything as big as a 110 in it, but I'm sure I could.

    I do wish that it was a 20', but that's a huge jump in price. I paid about 11000$CDN, and a 20' is easily 5K more. I have a single ram hoist, tie downs, 3 way rear doors, and a roll-up tarp (absolutely essential). I'm cautious when I dump, but I haven't had any close calls.

    I'll try and post pics here in a bit.

    I hummed and hawed about one for about 6 years - I don't regret it a bit. If I could've found a 20' I wouldn't need my 25' gooseneck anymore.

    Depending on the size you want, this may fit your needs. Sure-trac makes a nice deckover dump trailer with fold down sides for side loading materials. Sure Trac |

    That particular style is only available as a 14'. Booooooo!

    To get a 16' or 20' model from them you have to jump up to this: Sure Trac |
    I'm guessing that's a whole lot more $$.

    I like that fold-down side feature! What do you use that platform on the gooseneck for, Jer? Is that for chains, etc.?

    The triple axle configuration looks like it would be real stable under load and when dumping, too. Maybe that's why it was $11K, too?

    Wonderin' if the only way to get an 18' footer is to pre-order and given how heavy they are with a triple or dual wheel axles...?

    Appreciate the info.
