Hello Everybody,

I am shopping around for a trailer and I found a brand new 08 enclosed trailer 6x10 for $3480. The floor is 3/4" wood and the sides have 3/8" wood where I can mount weed wackers and blowers. The trailer company here in CT also sells the mounts for the weed wacker and blowers, but I am going to see if they can throw that in since I would be spending alot of money for an enclosed trailer. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Why are you getting such a small trailer?

I dont really have enough money for a larger one. I also need to buy a new backpack blower and other equipment. I also have only 2 walk behinds so I dont need a larger trailer.

I was just wondering.... good luck with it! I just cannot bring myself to spend so much money for a trailer,it would be nice having a workbench and shelves. Where did you end up getting the trailer from? What kind of racks do they carry?

dont buy something too small... buy a used one til you can save up some more money to get the size you need. For years I used a 6x12 and it sometimes got cramped up. Finance part of it if need be but dont buy something thats not up to the task or is undersized.

This is looking to be a good size trailer for me. I have two walk behinds that can easily fit with plently of more room. I have 2 weed wackers and a blower as well. I have my typical hand tools as well. With all of this in there, there is still plenty of room for me. The trailer also has lighting and plenty of ventilation in it as well. The place I went to didnt have any used trailers. I am still looking around though. I also went to lowes and saw a 6x12 for almost $2998 I think it was.

ok that sounds cool. yeah if you can get the name that would be great. The trailer at Lowes is made by Carry On its a 6x12 like i said for 2998. Does anyone think it would be any good? I am also looking at Pace American from CT Trailers in Bolton, CY. They got a 6x 12 trailer for around 3800. I need peoples opinions before I go and buy something I would regret later on. The trailers I was looking at seem to be very good for landscaping and other work as well.

well I have a carry-on open trailer. and the welds on the gates broke and while driving, the gates fell down. so yea, i dont like Carry-on lol. I dont think I will be out that way today, but if I am I will get the name & number for you. The ford dealer in Milford I think its Steven's sells trailers, or was selling them... you can call them too.

Yeah thats who I found online when I was looking it up. They sell Carry On as well, but they are very cheaply made. I think I am going with a 6x12 Pace American with extra head room space to walk. Thickers Floors and walls, lighting inside, ventilation, and the rings to strap equipment into on the floor.

If I see any other places I will let you know, headed out to hamden tomorrow so I will keep an eye out. Do you really want an enclosed? or would you be intrested in an open trailer?

enclosed because i just want to back it up int he driveway and forget about it. they are more secure, rain tight and all that stuff. thanks for looking out for me to i appreciate it

Dont be affraid to drive, us in the northeast face some of the highest trailer prices for some reason. Look around, it may be worth a few hour drive if it means saving a couple hundred or even a thousand dollars. I plan on purchasing an enclosed trailer later in the year and I plan on driving probobly 12 hours to get it. However the few hundred in gas will make up for the few thousand in savings. Just a word of advice.

There comes a time where you really weigh ALL the options. I think if you did that you'd make the right choice. One way to look at it, do you really enjoy doing landscaping? If so I assume you want to grow. Say you have 10, 15 lawns now, 2 years from now you have 30, 40. Now you need a ride on to get things done efficiantly, but you still need the walk behind for tight areas and such. Those aren't going to fit in the 6x12, if they do, its just barely. So now you sell the trailer, take prob a 30-40% hit, then buy the trailer you should have the first time, now you've wasted time, and money. All around us the lawncare industry is FULL of people who wish they did it right the first timea when it comes to equipment. You still have time, dont be one of those people

Sounds like a decent trailer im from ct and found ct trailers to be a little on the high side you could try wh rose in columbia or limberger in ellington

Enzo

Yeah. I am also thinking of a 7x14 trailer but then again. I have a budget and I know my lawns arent that big and dont plan on doing anything bigger than an acre or two. At that point I will have two walk behinds with me and more workers.
