You mean like this one. The second is with trimmer racks, toolbox and compressor, all nicely bundles in one with no wasted space.

uh mine is kinda like that but its more in the shape of the tounge on the trailer. i like the setup and the idea of having an air compressor on ur trailer could come in handy.


yeah its pretty nice up here in maine the only thing that sucks is we dont have much of a summer...LOTS of plowing in the winter time though!!!

I have way too much construction equipment to be able to fit in the triangle tongue box, so the truck tool box is much better for me. So far as the air compressor, I will never own another trailer without one.

They are great, if you wanna store a 16 oz. Pepsi. But there isnt room for ice though...

look on craigslist there are always hundreds of these in my city every month. they go for 80-100$ used with working keys. why spend 200$ on a new 1 when you can get a used one for half that is in new condition! good luck searching

What are the dimensions of the box? Any problems with it in tight turning situations? I really like the looks of that. One last question: Where did you get it?

Bought both at the same time, but ordered them with the options I wanted (both identical) and they happen to be built beside each other on the assembly line. I thought it was pretty cool.

I use an extended hitch and it works fine with great clearance even at jackknife points. Probably wouldnt work with a regular old wussy hitch though. I bought the toolbox off craigslist for $40 (full size chevy box), made the trimmer racks at the shop and just bolted the compressor and reel down with rubber grommets.

I have an L shaped truck bedside box. It works pretty good for holding trimmerline, oil, straps, etc. I made up brackets to hold the trimmer on the top of it.

I have seen them mounted in reverse in order to not take up bed space, but unfortunately the way my trailer was MFG'ed i had to mount it this way.

For a minute there I thought the basketball goal was attached to the trailer ramp. I thought it was cool. For a minute.

Oh my God. That is SO not a Grand National. It is a Monte Carlo. Just because you asked that horrifying question, you are to go to the corner of the room immediately. Dont forget to grab the big white D.U.N.C.E. hat on the way over there. You are not allowed to own a GM product from this point forward. Ever. If you have any now, sell them.
