The Dumping Trailer Experiment

What do you do when a government and its industries are so corrupt
that you can't even have a dumpster for your own roll off truck?
You barrow a friend's trailer and improvise.

April 19th, 2010: Did a little experiment with the thought of using a utility trailer as a dumpster.

I used a couple blocks to take place of the rear wheels I didn't have. They also helped out with requiring less tip when loading. It loaded about as steep as most common hook-lift do without them. If I had my own dumpster, it would require less till  as you see here and it would be less likely to have materials inside shift back while loading.

I just used a couple bungy cores to attach 2 x 4s  on to the rails so that the trailer axial wasn't digging into them.

The key here was to keep the truck creeping forward so that the tailgate wouldn't get crushed.

Thanks to the guys at Winsor for the use of their scales.


I think it's pretty neat.
Like a portable pick up I can roll about in my one car garage.

Think of the fuel I save when I use this
