I use a single axle 10' to haul my Lawn equipt. which I like for mpg. reasons but I can't carry all my equipt.

I'm starting to wonder about the trade-off with plating & insuring 2 trailers for commercial use vs. the fuel savings & advantage of being able to haul all I need on one trailer. I could have a gate made such as yours that might make that descent not seem as spooky.

Any idea what your trailer weighs?

Jeff
It says the trailer weighs 2000lbs but I think its more than that. Its a 20' 12,000 gvw model. The gates and rail were added from the factory. A local welding shop added the stops to the gates. Heres some more pics.

Heres more pics of the ramps. They are built pretty strong and I can fit all my mowing equipment on it and have also been able to hold a kubota L48. I also put a skid steer on there but always back it up because of the slope.

Heres a pic of my ball. I had to raise it 4 inches because the trailer rides so high. Should have got the adjustable coupler

The racks will sway, just keep an eye on the bolts that attach to the trailer and keep them tight. The bolts will eventually break or come undone. If you have access to a welder you might want to run a bead down the side. So you don't lose your rack and your trimmers on the highway. IMO.

I love the trac-vacs. I think they are 45 gal buckets and I don't put a bag in it. It goes into the barrel and then I empty the barrel in my truck. Why would you use a bag?

Really nice stuff...I like the note on the trailer too...Do you mind the big 40-some gallon bucket in front of you while your mowing?
