is it wrong that I'm more interested in pics of the one you built yourself?
It’s done for,the hitch ring wore through and it dropped into the field bending the drawbar,it was tipped over numerous times but the death knell was my nephew trying to tip it with one of the body pins missing,this ruined both rams,we stuck the rams off another tipper I had,but one of those has now failed,the floor is worn through and from the chassis up is scrap.

It's a fair trailer 7t empty weight,It replaced a trailer I built myself some 21 years ago,I'm sure this will last longer.

Anyone got any recomondations for a 20 tonne dump trailer or the average price range of a new one. Anyone got any in stock at the minute? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Was looking at this trailer in particular but was wonder would a broughan,smyth, nd or another similar make be much dearer or even cheaper
No harm but that trailer will likely hold a hell of a lot more than 20 ton, have used an 18 ton Herron h2 that looks an awful lot smaller and had 24+ ton on it without packing it in. That looks a cumbersome big beast.

would agree on the size, used a 20t dooley couple weeks back and that looks like a toy compared to the herculean judging from the photos

Do you actually need 20 ton? Because it wasn’t that long ago that anything more than 14ton was very hard to get into sites with the council etc, not sure if its still the case.
deffenitely. Going to be used to draw stone from a site in stamullen to ballbrigan. Want to bring plenty in the one run.

Would be a serious trailer, just seems a bit dear. Wondering would there be much difference in the price of other brands. I'm assuming too that a t7.250 would be capable of managing a 20 tonne dump trailer with ease.

granted i wasnt on the road, that 20t dooley was behind a 8260 and usually they be behind one of the tm155's. that 250 be plenty for it
