We had one of those a while back. Used it mainly for leaf clean-ups. Big and heavy!

That is the thing, you have got to use it alot or it will lose money. When gas was a $ a gallon who would care but a 4 ??????

The most efficient trailer I ever had for lawn care was a 7 X 14 single axle I had custom made, I went to a 7 X 20 when the economy was going good and miss my old 7 X 14. Should not have sold it.

Tongue weight could be an issue at times I would imagine.

You only want weight if you are going to use it, if you use the dump once a week I can see it other than that less profits overall.

1500 pounds can add 100$ + a month to your fuel bill quick.

That thing would be a nightmare to balance. Either to heavy on the back or the tongue.
