REDEDUMP Trailer


I was wondering if anyone has every used a rededump trailer. If so do you have any feed back you might be able to give me please.

I am looking for a dump trailer for my small 4acre lot with house.



http://www.rededump.com/trailers.htm

I like the idea but I am just wondering how it works after a few years of use

Not at all the military has been using that same concept for ever. It's well proven. I personally use to have on of the army versions it was so much easier to use than my current electric hydro dump.

edit: one benefit to the military version is the built in parking brake just pull the lever on the tongue and the wheels are locked. You never have to chock the wheels.

Hi,

I have a 4' x 8' that I use for firewood delivered and am picking up a 7 x 10 and 8 x 10 this Spring. They work as promised, just make sure you are backing up straight and the ground underneath isn't muddy or the tires just slide (though chocks work well to stop that). Nice not having to worry about charging batteries.

Re: REDEDUMP Trailer


I watched both videos. There is one thing they kind of gloss over in the videos that somebody who hasn't used a dump trailer before wouldn't notice. The back end of the trailer ends up almost on the ground when it dumps, this makes a low pile, you have to drive up to get anything to dump out. I'm not saying this isn't a problem with any dump trailer because they are set low, but the mechanism on those trailers puts it even lower. You will not have a nice pile when you dump, it will be spread out. The thing doesn't dump very high, so if you have stuff that wants to stick in there, it won't come out easily.

I'd like to see them do a video with some wet soil.

I'll give you a hint-It ain't going to happen so easy. You'll also notice they don't show you how spread each load is.
