Get Ready for Spring Chores With a New Dump Trailer From McFarlane’s!March 21, 2023 by Kyle McFarlane
Spring is the perfect time to tackle those big landscape and clean-up projects you’ve been putting off all winter. With the days getting longer, you should have more motivation to get your home spruced up for the upcoming spring events, Easter, graduation, Mother’s Day and any other family get-together. Dump trailers are a great accessory for your spring cleaning process.
How To Use Your Dump Trailer in the Spring
Spring cleaning comes from Eastern traditions. During Passover, Jews clean their home to rid them of even crumbs of leavened bread. It’s a ritual dating back thousands of years. The Chinese and Iranians also have traditions to clean the home at the new year to welcome spring and good fortune. Here in North America, we perform spring cleaning, but it’s more likely that we want to get outside and clean up our homes and gardens now that we have more energy.
As you begin your spring cleaning tradition, you might be moving furniture out of your home to take it to find a new home for it. Maybe you’re moving and need to haul furniture across the city to your new home. Dump trailers make great haulers for all types of materials. You can take all the accumulated trash out of your garage to the local junkyard without much effort when you have a dump trailer.
Landscaping and gardening are other aspects of spring cleaning where the dump trailer can come in handy. Haul old brush and tree branches out of your yard. Bring in new soil and landscaping materials with your dump trailer. It’s easy to place a pile of rocks or a ton of compost where you need it when you can just lift the trailer and empty it.
What Makes a Trailer a Dump Trailer?
Trailers come in many shapes and sizes with different features. A dump trailer has an open box bed to haul materials. The dump trailer’s best feature is that the bed lifts from the front of the trailer to empty it without hard work. If you’re hauling a load of soil for your garden, you don’t have to shovel the soil out of the trailer at each location. Just lift and dump. At the junkyard, just lift the bed and empty it into the pile.
Features of Dump Trailers
Dump trailers come in many different sizes from a small 5-foot by 8-foot trailer that can handle around 900 pounds to huge trailers 80-inches by 14 feet with an 11,000-pound payload. Dump trailers can have loading ramps, come with different styles of suspension, and with single or tandem axles. At McFarlane’s, we can customize your dump trailer with a variety of add-ons to haul extra equipment or to keep loads safe on the road. Our designers can add heavy-duty fenders, LED lights, heavy-duty flooring and more to give you everything you need.
