Thanks Robert. At least all the fertilizer I put out will be kicking in. Plenty of sharp blades ready!

Placed my order last week. I was impressed at how easy it was to lift the gate. I like their attention to the small things like the construction of the gate.

That's pretty nice, I wish mine had that toolbox cage in the front, I'm sure it comes in handy.

I almost did not add the tool cage JF, but I added it after thinking about how many times I have left things unlocked and have gotten away with it. ANT, this is my second trailer from them. You are correct about small things like the gate. Good luck with yours.

We have a kaufman (think theyre brothers) thr spring worked good but eventually it was broken off because it would drag on a few sharp drives.

I looked at Kaufman but was concerned the dovetail they include would scrape going out of some steep parking lots.

That trailer looks well built. One thing to do is ditch those crappy bias ply tires for a decent radial. I wore mine out in a month.
