    We have them they hardly ever get used unless we are Downtown or up at the lake.

    Walker Why Don't You Have The W/b On The Front Sideways And Use The Side Gate On Yards That You Only Use The W/b

    I think they need to make a trailer (Maybe they do) where the sides come down, but not for a gate use. But to make loading pallets for example much easier

    I have one on my 7x12 Carry-On, and I have my 44" Toro wb on sideways and I can drive it right off onto the lawn.

    seriously.. I even ask my fabricator to do this.. He said that the reg open landscape trailer sides, he could but hinges on. Only prob would be keeping they study when in the up position, (Like how guys stand on them, they might wobble)
