    Around here that same exact trailer but 7 x 16 sure trac is $2,200. I personally love my sure trac, best made trailer out there. Mine is all square tubing though. In the spring im getting a 7 x 14 tandem all aluminum. About $3,000

    yes the wood sides on the trailer are nice. I was hauling stone, mulch, and soil with it all the time and they kept it all in. I had 4 yards of soil on the trailer one time.

    StihlBR, sounds like you get good pricing where you live. I wasnt going to do any better here. Other companies who sell for example, Big tex trailers, wanted 2 grand just for single axle 6.5 x 12's. Knocksoff 7 x 12 were only 200 cheaper. And people want basically new prices for their used trailers. I looked forever. It is what it is and the trailer has already paid for itself with how much I was able to do with it already. Theres other things to look as as well, heavy duty gate, and brakes on all 4 wheels. Thats a law in NYS. Some states only require brakes on 2 of the 4 wheels. Could be a reason its a bit more $. Or not, who knows. But around here thats what they cost. I tell you what though, I agree with you, they are awesome trailers. I almost bought a 7 x 12 tandem aluminum myself but did alot of reading about them and stuck with a steel trailer instead. They do look pretty shnazzy though I must admit.

    Yes brakes on both axles is a little bit more. Around here Big Tex trailer are insanely high as well. I just dont see why they are so expensive. They just use cheap angle iron with a tube top. An aluminum trailer is a perfect deal for me because they weigh about 1,000 pounds compared to a steel trailer thats the same size that weighs 1,800. I only have a Ford ranger so i cant get to heavy of a trailer

    beefed up my trailer a bit. added taller side, welded on some D-rings and slip them through those cut out holes in the wood. and a tool box on front. Just put a bagger on the scag this week too. for sucking up leaves. and some of my hand-helds. havent even used the one weed-whacker yet. I got a sick little 22'' pushmower too but its at my dads so no pics of it yet.

    Awesome stuff man! I'm thinking about a Deere Quik Trak next year. I also need to build a rack like what you have, for my brooms and rakes.

    Are those Echo 225's? Sorry if you gave the models and I missed it. I have a 225 and it runs great.

    yup they are both echo 225's. just the one has been holding it down all year. havent even had to run the second one yet. the trailer rack was a great move. it can hold every hand tool I need to bring. its build very strong. and its removeable. it slides into pockets welded to the trailer. and two bolts on each side for cheap insurance
