Well, I got myself a new 6x10 trailer for my operation. I'm solo so its big enough for me for this year. I picked it up for $725 'cause it was damaged. When they were unloading them off the truck they bent one of the front underbed supports. We took it home and put the backhoe down on it and flattened it right out, did a little reinforcement welding and its solid trailer again.

I really like the way its built, its made of 2" square tubing and the sides are removable (some what challenging) but they're strong. It's plenty beefy, but doesn't weigh a ton either.

It's made by SnowBear up in the great white

here are some pic's.

You will be surprised how much equipment will go on a 6X10 with a little preplanning. I have one and I added a landscape basket, Trimmer Traps 2 trimmer racks, handheld blower holder, and a E-Z Gate Gate assist. Daily I carry a 48'' Scag, 21'' trim mower, 2 trimmers, backpack blower, handheld blower, little wonder, rakes, shovels, brooms, and so on and it is all organized with it's own home.

yah, i just took delivery of this thing late last week. I'm going to take a trip to the scrap yard and see if i can find some material to make myself a trimmer trap, rack and something to hold hand tools like shovels,rakes, etc.

i thought about making something for the gate, its not really heavy, but you have to get right up against it to lift it up 3/4" and pull it back out of the saddle. I didn't think it would be bad, but the other day after it raiend I got covered in sand that had gotten stuck to the bottom of the gate when i put it down last.

I was thinkin of using 2 garage door springs with a mount on each of the side rails.

the other thing i need to do is get some tie downs welded to the side of this thing.
