Proper weight balance. At the time that is pic was taken the trailer had just over 3k of mulch in it plus miscellaneous tools. Should be about #450 on the tongue. It was 'sagging' a bit, but the pic doesn't show all that well.

Cant say anything bad about that trailer. I like it. Thats what most of the low profile heavy equipment trailers are around here. Its close to its limit with the mini and it does well. The brakes are very good. I dont use the brake pedal when I tow the mini, I use the controler paddle. The truck brakes are equivalent to sticking your left hand out the window for wind resistance.

Yes it's a 16 ft. and I don't have to load backwards, it's just something I've always done since previously having a 12 ft. with two 61" mowers. They fit by loading backwards with the bars of the walk behind hanging over the front of the trailer.

It looks pretty tiny when I stand back and look at it. I'd love to have a 16' trailer, but I simply don't have room for one. I'm limited to a ten, maybe twelve footer max. This should do OK for another year or so though.
It may not be the nicest trailer, but I think I did a pretty good job of polishing a turd and it works for me, so I can't complain.

Vinnie,
This trailer is manufactured here in Fresno, CA and has been for many years. The back is used for green-waste and lifts for dumping. The front half of coarse is used for storage. This style is very popular here and comes in many different configurations. I am having some work done on it and will post some pics when I pick it up. Here in the Fresno area we have 4 companies that recycle green-waste. For a trailer up to 8ft. in length (load area) we pay
$ 20.00 per load for dumping.

Nope sorry, you can try to be smart but that axle in that picture is a 3500# axle from ALL PRO trailers. You can easily tell by the fact that is has 5 lug hubs.

Here is the breakdown
5 lugs- 3500 lbs
6 lugs- 5000 lbs
8 lugs- 6500 + lbs

You can easily verify this info by going to ALL PRO Trailers website or ask anyone who knows anything about trailers.. Ive got trailers from All pro and its the same case with all of them as well.. If by chance you bought the trailer used and they told you it was an "upgraded/ heavy duty axle" you got ripped off. If you still want to go with its a 5k lb axle why is is sagging so much with only 3500 lbs or so on it? your tires are almost touching the fenders.. And your tires aren't rated for a 5000 lbs load. you have a set of 205-75-15 load range C tires on there whereas a 5klbs requires a 225-75-15 atleast Load range D tire.. If you wanted to show us the receipt for that "upgrade" you did I will deff take back this post but until then. you have yourself a great day as well..

P.S I have been wondering why cant you be found on the internet, like a company website or something from sunbiz. You're a hard person to find..

He may be talking about the springs, I upgraded the springs on my enclosed last year.
Tandem 16 footer with 3500 lb axles, upgraded to 4or 5000 lb springs. Really saved on tire wear with the upgraded springs.

Your definaty right though about the 5 lug being a dead ringer for indicating 3500lb axle.

Looking at the pic, looks like he's in fl, that's how most fl guys roll anyway. Overloaded!!

Tisk tisk tisk I see quite a few with no straps. Start a thread on this forum asking about straps and you will get chastised for not strapping your mowers down. Yet I see plenty of rigs on here with no mowers strapped down. We never have and I almost never see anybody around here with mowers strapped down either. Anyway.............

Tandem 16 footer with 3500 lb axles, upgraded to 4or 5000 lb springs. Really saved on tire wear with the upgraded springs.

Your definaty right though about the 5 lug being a dead ringer for indicating 3500lb axle.

Looking at the pic, looks like he's in fl, that's how most fl guys roll anyway. Overloaded!!
Posted via Mobile Device

Maybe - not a equipment guy. K and D told me they needed to upgrade something when I was in there for a repair last year because of the weight issue and I was getting a new axle as a result. I will see if I can find the reciept for MJL but I am not in any rush for it.

here ya go, I did some leg work.. unless you found the ONE trailer "shop" in the world that managed to make a 5 lug 5000 lb axle, it aint what you think it is.. springs replaced or not. if the axle cant hold it, it cant hold it.. its basic, 5lugs are ALWAYS gonna be 3500 lb axles on a 6x10 or 6x12 utility trailer.. all I'm saying is if thats what they told you it was.. go and demand your money back..

Don't know but I will find out what exactly it was done and I guess how much to upgrade to the 5 k one. We shall see as I can not imagine it being that much if that one is not a 5K one as when I had the work done before the axle was only like $150 bucks or so.

Thinking about adding another trailer anyway so if the cost of putting another axle on this then this may just get used as the new trailer . We shall see.

Thanks for the legwork.

Yah I'm not busting your chops (although I had so much fun on the sod post haha ) that would be the first 5 lug 5k lb axle I've seen/heard off and even the major manufacturers don't advertise them. I would look into it if it was me, A lot of shops advertise about their "heavy duty" parts and they simply aren't.. go on craigslist and try to find an ad for a trailer that doesn't advertise as being heavy duty. It's what sells and they are all a bunch of liars!

After looking at all of these great pictures, I wonder how do you dispose of your greenwaste? Alot of you must have a good amount of greenwaste that cannot always be mulched. My wife and I do not do to much mulching here in Fresno but used the 90 gallon green cans when possible. We now have 4 greenwaste facilities here that we can dump at. $ 20.00 for a trailer up to 8 ft. in length excluding palms.

05-28-2012, 12:09 AM
We have a green waste center here that grinds to mulch. I think its $25/ ton to dump and then you have to buy the mulch also. They make mulch and soil conditioner products from yard waste and shipping pallets.

My trailer was manufactured in 2002 by Tru-trailers Inc. here in Fresno. This type of trailer is very popular here in the Central Valley. I found this particular trailer on Craigslist and had it modified for my needs. We can use this dump style here because we do not have severe weather as can be found in other parts of the country. I chose the shorter version to keep the wind resistance to a minimum. Some LCO's have trailers that are wider and taller for the equipment storage. It cost me $ 20.00 to dump at the green waste facilities here in Fresno.

Seems like it's an even split, singe axle to tandem axle on here. In Western Montana where i am at, single axles rule due to the area we are in is a resort area with lake homes and dead end streets that are really 1 lane gravel drives. There is one day a week i have to take my regular cab gas truck on my route as i can't get my crew cab and trailer turned around on a couple properties. A few weeks ago i took the crew cab and had to back in from the main road nearly 1/4 mile. I also don't see too many flat trailers with high sides. I personally find high sides a pain in the arse.
Having to let the gate down to access ANYTHING in the trailer is a pain. then again, we don't have many thieves around here.........

The mowers are carried in the front. I need my 32" two days out of the week so I switch equipment out on those days. My trailer is a small to mid size version. Some LCO's have storage areas that are taller, wider and even open. This trailer is 10 yrs. old but is big enough for my needs. I get approx. 10 - 11 mpg towing so I did not want anything bigger or taller. I had the front widened to handle the length of my 32". Found this on Craigslist.

Carries 8.5 tons legaly and 9.5 if I get rid of the all season body for a standard one. What is kind of nice is that 9 ft body is hard to overload. Full is right about perfect weight wise. If you really mound it you can get it about 1 ton overweight. Its good for someone like me who is always tempted to push it.

Glad i don't need a box to lock everything down out here. This is my small trailer. 12x6. I can get through the whole day without emptying clippings. Just toss the sideboards up and dump up to 6 hopperfulls on the front. I compost them in my pasture. This 12' trailer is nearly too long on some of my properties on the lake. One i have to back down the access road over 600 feet as there is no turnaround. Many of my accounts are rural so the blowers sit in the bed as there is little to blow. The only fuel can i carry is a 2.5 gallon for the trimmers and blowers. The mower holds 8 gallons of diesel and i go 2 plus days between fuel ups. i fuel at the shop.

Stuff is not locked down while working, I don't have garage so box gets locked when sitting in driveway & cable with lock through walkbehinds, 21" mower & couple wraps around string trimmer shaft & trimmer rack til there is no slack left in cable.

I guess it depends on what "ok" mpg is to you...I have run a 4500 with my last job and other trucks like it f550 f650 and so on..these are big trucks that weigh a lot and if you tow even less mpg...we got anywhere from 6 towing a 16ft trailer loaded with equipment to 9 on a good day not towing..my personal four door 4x4 2004 ram diesel gets 19 empty 21 on a very good day and keeping my foot out of it if i tow ..anywhere from 15 to 11.5 depends on what i am towing..my worst mpg yet is with my enclosed 36ft toy hauler 11.5 cant really complain about that..hope this helps..

I haven't had too much time to get everything set up the way i really want, but threw together a handtool rack out of scrap lumber and put an old toolbox on the tounge for extra storage as trailers and trucks seem to clutter as soon as it gets cleaned out.http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y416/mseals08/IMAG0132.jpg

My 5x12 trailer I just picked up yesterday.

Where is the best place to get accessories such as trimmer racks etc?

Nice trailer , I personally stopped using racks because they limited the use of my trailer and my help would always forget to put a pen in the trimmer or something would never fail to happen and down the road and something hanging half off I keep all my stuff on the truck , but for racks I like the ideas behind the jungle jim trailer mate , the way it spaces a trimmer on each side one for you and one for your helper etc , its kinda pricey but you get everything you would just about need in one purchase and install , there a ton of racks for the trailers but you get what you pay for , do a search on the web it will give you an idea.

Thanks for the advice and I will checkout the JJ trailer mate. Thanks again!

Here's another pic of it with my plow on it. First thing I am getting is a spare tire. Picked up a nail in my tire today and turned into a slow leaker. Luckily it made it home fine.

We really like the trailer mate package. Only drawback is having a big mower next to your trimmer. Have had a few mishaps with banging up the trimmer unloading the mower.

12' Galvanized Trailer. Great durable trailer, no rust :)
I plan on adding a trimmer rack to the trailer. Can i bolt the racks to the wood sides or will that not be strong enough? I don't have any metal post/rail to attach it to like on most landscape trailers i have seen. Let me know what you guys think?

So long as you don't go very tall, you should be alright.

I'd highly recommend cutting off all the excess bolt length. A 4" grinder with a cutoff wheel would make short work of those. Also, I'd look at the Fastrap tie-down system, for your ZTR. It's so much faster and safer than what you're doing.

That's a really nice trailer, BTW.

Kinda expensive but they are simple, strong, and anti theft. For the trimmer racks I have a 3TR and all 3 trimmers lock with one lock, I really like that. Here is some links to my stuff.

I don't like those because it has 3 locks for all 3 trimmers. You gonna be unlocking all 3 every time and messing with keys when you stop at a yard. I would look at jungle Jims they have 3 bolts also and it operates on one lock.

Ryan I understand your OCD about rust, being from WI as well. It not only looks bad but left unchecked and damage equipment faster than you think. Not just looking bad, I'm under the assumption that customers up here know that rust "happens" and except it for what it is.

As for mounting the trimmer rack to wood. It will work but over time the wood gets soft (around the holes) and rounds out starting to wobble out. Easy solution you can do now during winter is use a metal bands on the inside of the boards and a fender washer and nylon locking nut on the outside of the boards.

Hey Swampy,

What do you mean by metal bands? Not sure if i understand exactly.. ?

The individual locks do not bother me. All my locks are keyed the same and I keep a small group of keys with me on a belt loop (mower key, tool box key & lock key). Any time I am not at my trailer EVERYTHING stays locked. Only thing not locked is an old trash can. I have some of the trimmer trap racks. But personally I don't like the spring system on their 3 handheld model. I've used them for years and that 3 piece unit has always been a pain.

That is a 14 ft if I remember correctly. I still have it but it is not currently in use so I can not say for sure. If you look through this thread or maybe my photo thread I have the photo of my new trailer as I simply out grew that one as you can see .

Do you keep everything out side in the weather?

The 36ft trailer is our toy box ATVs and side by side it has A/C and lights and all it is a perfect hauler for what we enjoy mudding I ran all the electric and A/C and built all the shelving and do dads for it as well..and no the lawn trailer is not stored outside it is stored under a steel carport shelter when parked ..we have 12 rain barrels that I rigged up for the wifes garden they are filled by the gutters..good eye :)

I concur that you are most likely not over by much. With my 48 and 36 Z ...all the extras your carry I was over a little for my 3500 lb axle . My main issues was the thought of DOT ,others safety and that the axle kept bending and having to be replaced

I kept my single axle but upgraded and had a custom trailer built with a 5200 lb axle..cause to be honest I do not want to pull all that weight for what is essentially lawn trailers. I like to keep things light and mobile and with as little axles as possible because a axle = more weight which is equal to more gas and of course each axle is more tolls and tires as well. My sod work is subbed out so honestly 99.5% of the time with my equipment all thrown on there...I am not even close to being overweight now.

Look at greentouch trimmer racks then...get the engine support kit while purchasing. Everything is held nice and tight. I think I have photos of my most recent trailer on this thread to see them or review in my photo thread. They stay right where you put them..no spin
