Yes I know. Wrong place but itll get lost in the trailer threads!

Anyway, after much waiting, design changes etc let me introduce you to....

My new Trailer! hehe

8x6 tilt, fully dip gal, heavy duty everything, front gate drops flat, has a tail gate that slips in/out when needed and ramps can be removed.

Heres a pic with the front gate down. Thinking behind this is that I can put other ramps up to the ute and put another mower or dump clipping etc onto the ute. May never need to but at least I could if want.

Oh, and thats Tank the dog!

Loading the JD on.
Full tilt but can adjust for more tilt if needed by changing links on a chain.

Can you save those bits of timber covering the holes in your old trailer! Mine will need the timber to cover the floors soon. :rolleyes:
Pulled all the flaking rust of the bottom today and repainting it after rust killer.
She will have to last another season at least!

Todd, give ya a carton of beer to take it off my hands!

Potts, I got the idea of the front tail gate from looking at some Bobcat skid steer owners. Some here have mini excavators as well that they cart around on trailers. They use ramps that go up to the truck from the trailer that they drive the bobcat down and excavator on trailer. Cant do that with a front, welded gate. Thought may be able to drop clippings on ute tray (if ever needed?) or cart around another mower etc.
Was basically trying to plan ahead not knowing really if will ever be used but good to know its possible! If that made sense! Had a few beverages this afternoon!

Stuie, them bits of wood are Patient Pending! :p
The new trailers fully dipped in Gal so I shouldnt have rust problems but..... We'll see! :rolleyes:

Not sure Topcat. Could put some pretty big ones down the sides but would probably be better at the back where the ramps are. But then wind wouldnt get through the ramps. I went the mesh ramps for that reason when could of had solid for less money. Hear from people that solid ramps are like sails and can reduce fuel efficiency. Sounds right to me!
But never know and I wont say never!

Together Mick, they look VERY impressive!

:pumpkin:
Note: I have just taken my 4th phone call, from the trailor, now that's over the last 12 months, and that covers the cost of the signage.

I thought of putting a sign on the tailgate of my new trailer, however, when I'm parked outside my customers house, no one can read it. I would rather have it on the side so the neighbours can see it and say, wow, he is so much better than our guy, we should switch. (I wish!) That's a theory anyhow. Name and Number on both sides!

Topcat, If I put signs on the sides of the trailer, people wont be able to see the mower well. I have got work from people just checking out the mower before. They just come over and ask for number usually!

Lawnworks/Premier, Its a 1999 3.2L V6 petrol. It does have heaps of power. More than enough to tow what I have. Its actually a rebadged Isuzu. The turbo deisel version is supposed to be very good also.

Thought about selling the ute a while back but decided to keep it as works well. Just wish it was 4wd for getting up steep gravel driveways.
