Hey Plow Kid
Which JD is it?? Cause im probley getting a JD F710 with a snowblower and a 48deck 17hp Kaw. How well does yours cut and stripe?? The reason im getting the F710 cause my uncle is selling it and i can get it for a cheap price with only 210hrs on it. It will be greatly needed for my business considering all i have right now is a 2001 Scag Turf Tiger 52in cut, and a piece of junk F525 three wheeler that ill be selling next year. All i need now is a bigger trailer.
Wheres the ramps?? You just tilt the trailer down to the ground??
Happy Mowing

I have a trailer that tilts like that. It's a 5' * 8'. I bought it for $150. The only reason I bought it was because everyone I know wanted to borrow my main trailers ( both 6' * 16' ). And I could also use it if I had too. So far I've never used it, but my father had great success using it on small properties where a larger one wouldn't fit in the drive (busy streets). I works like a charm for carrying a small walkbehind, 1yd of mulch, gravel, or anything else that doesn't require lots of space. There is a pin you pull and it tilts with gravity. I wish there was something similar to that for larger trailers.

Hey havent u guys ever seen a snowmobile trailer?????
He probley pulls a pin or a pulls a lever to release the flat bed. And slowly drives off the back flipping it to the ground, its fun, used to drive a garden tractor on a old snowmobile trailer, though the trailer didnt have sides on it :eek:
His trailer is like a snowmobile trailer only built for hauling lawn mowers, four wheelers, brush etc.

I had one of them, it was a 5 x 10 snow mobile trailer and it worked out pretty good. It has a latch on the tongue you flip back and back the mower off.

I had one, it was my first. Had to back my Dixon on because not enough weight in front to make it go level.

Plowkid, at least you will post a pic of equipment, not to mention having yourself in the pic.. Most on here are not even willing to do that. Congrats, looks like you have a setup that works well for you.

Anyone else, before you criticize (joking or not) you should have to post a pic of yourself!!!!!!!!!!!

After saying this, I realize that I don't have a pic of my set up on here except for an old one. I will try to post a new pic soon with me in it.

I have a 12' tilt trailer that I welded a gate on. I use the gate for my walk-behind, but I let it tilt for gettin' my Z off of there. Works great. Its pretty loud though when it finally tilts. Scares the little old ladies at the senior center that I do. Buts thats entertainment!

Some of you guys need to grow up. I hope that you dont treat your customers that way. Good set up man, if it works for you, let it work.

Nate: I must commend you on something. Most morbidly obese people that I know, who do landscaping don't really do any work at all. They just sit there and boss people around. So I wish to thank you for showing me that my broad assumption that all obese people are lazy is wrong.

Lawnboy82, I wouldn't consider him "morbidly obese", or even obese for that matter. Obese is "exceedingly fat", not just overweight.



P.S. Here is a picture of my rig.

Let's see how many negative comments I get. By the way, since my name isn't on the trailer or truck, does that make me a scrub?
