    Have any of you ever seen a belly dump that had a lift on the hopper so you could dump like an end dump.

    It seems like somebody tried that 35 or 40 years ago. I will try to find it. It also seems it would be prohibitively heavy. End dumps work very well and belly dumps work very well. Trying to mate that would probably produce a trailer that did neither well.
