Check this self propelled dumpster that can be towed to the job site and then driven under its own power using gas engine to where it needs to go. It has hydraulic pump so you can elevate it to the roof or tilt it and dump it into a another dumpster.
This thing goes for $32k Hete is the Youtube video

I think it's a giant waste of money. One could get 4 dump trailers for that price that can actually hold some real weight and volume.

While the idea is great, I don't know of one roof I've done this year where we could've driven that somewhere other than the driveway.

I agree with you, but to each its own... some who needed will get it, some who don't (like me) would use regular dumpster service.

But for a track development where you have room to move, that is the way to go, I would definitely have that on my job, you will save so much time, money and production time. :thumbsup:

Its geared to re-roofers, wouldn't be to useful in a new tract development. Most homes in my area are at most 8' from their neighbours, or their is fences, landscaping that cant be disturbed.
Neat idea but not too practical, at least for me.
I could see myself renting one on the odd job if it could save some labour.
