Have any of you had experience with one of these?

I have an old international pick up box trailer I'm going to try this with.
Between my 2 ponds, I have a road that is starting to deteriorate from beavers and muskrats digging holes. I'm thinking that I can use the tractor to get the dirt into the box, haul it down with the 4 wheeler and crank and dump.

Welp, it's here....
From the reviews I've read, the slicker the surface underneath the better it works. I'm thinking about lining the box with plywood then a plastic tarp on top of that.  :scratch:

 Thanks for the offer Mikey, that prolly would have  worked great.

I put it together and ran into a problem... The pickup box trailer tailgate is at 52 inches wide and the bearing mounts for the unloader is 58 inches. I'm probably going to have to find a piece of steel channel to go over the end of the tailgate to make it wider.

Not that easy. The dirt has to go a 1/2 mile back in the woods. I can't get a truck back there, I tried. I already have the dirt piled up... just gotta move it.

I get a load of dirt or gravel here now and then and I move lots of it in my little atv trailer behind my wheeler.  I shovel it all in and dump it wherever I need it.  Gets the job done and great tool to have around for other things too.  Maybe you already have one.

Welp, I got it mounted. I had a chunk of versa lam laying around, and used that to widen the tailgate. The tailgate needed to be thicker anyways.

Now I just got to try it out......
