Plastic tipping trucks?

Has anyone got any views, or even better still, any contacts for plastic tipping trucks? You know the sort I mean, the ones that you can put behind a compact tractor or a quads.
I'm thinking of something along the lines of this.

I could move apples around the place with it and also use it to wash them in.

Goodlife I was just reading that one when you posted   Its a set of wheels im after to mount my 200litre tank on that i use for spraying the thistles and nettles on the fields

A few months back i was looking for a trailer to tow behind the quad just for the odd fence post and carry the chain saw etc. Most of the plastic ones although very good where to expensive for what i wanted in the end i found a seconhand one of these

It wasnt far away complete with brand new spare wheel and the trailer itself looked new i got it for 110 and its ideal for what i use it for.

Bodger ive trawled around the web and it seems there all pretty much the same depending on what you want to pay

do you spray by hand or have you a electric sprayer  could you not put a luggage tye rack on the back of the quad and stand the tank on it
goodlife

or maybe convert this

Thats exactly what im after, just a little closer. The tank is far to heavy for the back of my quad. I use a spreder valve that gives me a spread of around 15 feet of spray, also is attached is my spot sprayer lance.
At the moment i use my trailer but if i only use half a tank its a real jo getting the half full tank on and off

slipsterthat is what we have done here picked up cheap and broken down trailers to tow behind tractors,Quads and utes they can be made into alsorts of things. An axle and draw bar then put 44 gal/210litre drum on side fitted on makes great spray trailer. Also same frame with box on top fitted at back only becomes tip trailer.
