    Dump Trailers

    So I am getting sucked into my Fathers search for a dump trailer. Right now he is set on a 80" x 14' dump box with (2) 7K axles. Combination rear door. Heavy duty floor and ramps.

    Right now we can get:

    Corn pro with dexter torsion axles and scissor lift for 9K 2013 Corn Pro Heavy Duty Dump Trailer

    Legend with spring's for 6,300 and dual cylinder lift

    or a PJ for 6,300. the PJ has a scissor lift PJ 14' HEAVY DUTY DUMP TRAILER 14,000 GVWR **ALL PJ TRAILERS ON SALE NOW!!! in Trailers | eBay Motors

    Who are the trailer experts?

    I was told to go with the scissor lift design. My neighbor has a 12' one that he wants to sell, and Im gonna try to buy it this year. Hes not in a hurry to sell it, but wants to.

    What I dont like about them, is when you dump you cant make a single pile. You dump and have to drive forward about the length of the bed to fully empty. Then you have to use a loader to push it all up in a pile. Also, he warned me not to fill to the front (dirt, gravel, sand) cause it wont lift up. I started loading about 3-4' back from the front.

    Yes Brian the scissor lift is the way to go. I use to work to for a trailer manufacturer. I seen many trailers come back tweaked. That just had one, or two lift cylinders. Most people won't order the scissor lift cause the added price.

    I don't have any input to offer but wish I had your problems. I could really stand to have one I could borrow from time to time! The landscape trailer I have (6X10) is actually my father's. He has never had a place to store it since he bought back in 1996. I have had to store and by default had direct access to it the entire time. Now if I could only convince him he needs a dump trailer instead!

    My step father has a 14 foot dump trailer with scissor lift. I will be down there today. I will snap some pics of it for you.

    Word is that he is going down state to look at a PJ D7 and PJ DL. The DL is the Low Profile model that is 24" off the ground and the D7 is the normal low profile. Neither are deck overs.

    Both have scissor lifts. Both weigh in at around 4,600 pounds. We will see how his Eco Boost F150 does towing it home.

    But there are many trailer places he will drive by so god knows.

    All I know is my wife is not happy as this means more horse crap coming our way.

    He bought the PJ DL 14 x 83" . That is one sweet trailer!. I looked at it tonight and forgot to snap a picture. That thing is built like a tank with 8" I beams for a frame.

    He said he was very impressed with the eco boost and he had all the power he wanted from 55 to 70. He also stated his fuel mileage was the same from 55 to 70. It stayed at 12mpg all the time. So he was impressed for pulling 4,700 pounds and the truck still being able to pass people and have some power.

    I still like displacement.

    "yote hunting last night was lack luster at best. A nice clear night but no moon. We had a skunk under the blind the whole time, so between the skunk and the horse ****, we had out scent covered. We could hear the dogs, but not see them.
