10,000 lb trailers

Who makes a 10,000 lb lawn care trailer other than sure trac. They seem almost imposible to find and no one seems to be able to order one. Want a 7x18 with gate and ramps. Sure trac makes one but dealer knows nothing about and wants to sell a smaller one. Thanks

I bought a new PJ trailer this past spring with the 5200 lb axles, 1 ft sides, a landscape box, and heavy duty gate. Love it!! Great trailers!! After I bought it, I added the dealer to my list of customers.

rreyn 1812, did you get the gate with the ramps in it ? How heavy is the gate and did you get brakes on both axles.

Any dealer with a brain will order it with brakes on both axles. If your state has dot laws it most likely requires brakes on both. Order the trailer with the heavy duty gate so the mesh lasts longer and ask for a extra spring on the gate so it lifts easier. My 22ft has both of these and really doesn't cost a lot.

Got brakes on both axles! The gate has the "ramps" on it, and it is heavy. It comes with spring assists on the gate, so it's not too bad to lift for one person. But, if I had to lift it 20 or more times a day, I would still add a gate assist (Gorilla) just to save the body.

Second vote for Kaufman. They are very cheap due to only being sold at whole sale
