    How do you store your dumper- skip up or down?

    mine is outside all the time and the skip naturally fills with water .Is it good proctice to store with skip lifted up to prevent water gathering?

    store mine down ..... has two rams to get rusty ... also has a small split in a weld that i've never bothered to repair as it drains nicely
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
