I was woundering, spec for spec how does this trailer compare to big tex,felling and the other big brands ?Like the steel gauge hoist used side hight,lights gate hardware and is barn door gates standard with this or are they optional with a price increase?I really did not get a good veiw on there site of it the pics would be nice.

i could not get any pics today because we have the trailer at my buddies house puttin on some wood sides to make it taller and some tool racks.
the barn gate is standard and im not sure what guage steel it has off hand but i know that the hawke web site has all the info. when we got to the place they had two model both the same except the one we decided to get was 300 more but came tie downs welded to the floor thicker guage steel floor and a metel box to cover the pump and battery witch was definitly need when my friend droped a hammer on it today.
as far as how it compares to other brands i think it is the best. i looked at alot of other brands and this one was far more better from dump angle,the sissor lift,more standerd options and strength. it also tows real nice

Sounds really nice to me. especially the price. I don't think I could touch one of those around here for under $4500. I think you got a good deal.

01-21-2003, 02:07 PM

the trailer is great tows real nice. dont have any pics yet ill get them when it gets alitte warmer and when i finish puttin on the lettering for our company. so far i really like it . the only problem i had was when i got it home i realized there were no ramps with it but i called the place where i got it and they said they would send me a pair no questions asked plus they fixed the wiring for my trailer brakes free of charge the service was great.
sorry about the pixs i promise ill have them soon just been busy

bds i was woundering before you saw this trailer did you look at big tex,felling,tomaster ,cam ? did you compare steel gauges and lift tonnage etc.? i wanted to get one to deliver mulch ,and firewood with. was looking at felling but seams like they are all at around $5,500 or so?

i looked at most of the brands you mentioned but not in depth however i did look at big tex and they are definitely good dump trailers i was going to buy one but then i found the hawke at a dealer that was closer and selling it for less money than a big tex trailer. The hawke matched up real well with all the other brands the ones i compared it to mostly were air cargo, ez dump, bri mar, and big tex and for the price and quality hawke seemed to be the best in my eyes other people may think different.
some of the best features that the hawke had compared to the ones i mentioned above were the scissor lift,thicker guage steel floor it came standard with i think 10 guage or what ever the other ones had but for 300 more $ i got a nother piece of steel that whent over the original floor and had eye hooks welded on this package also included a steel cover for the hydraulic reservoir and battery, and price.
you may not have a use for the ramps that comes with it but they were a nother plus they are extremely strong probably could handle a bulldozer.
if you would like any other info please ask and i am very happy with this trailer i think u would be too.
