This is my mulching and landscape trailer. I only paid $4500 for it in 2006 when I had it custom built. I've spent more money building an extreme duty split ramp, adding additional braces to the 4' sides, and making the frame a little stiffer. It weighs 6000 lbs empty. It has triple 7K axles each with electric brakes. It was originaly built by C&M trailer sales in Ennis TX. Elliot Trailer Sales built me the split ramp, added side braces, and welded some stout square stock tubing to the frame between front axle and the upright for the gooseneck. I recently had Virgil Moore Steel in Niederwald add some 3/4 thick brackets to the inside of the trailer to reinforce where the floor meets the wall in the front of the trailer. They also boxed in the vertical I beams on the gooseneck to make them stiffer as well. I've carried 17,500 lbs in this trailer with no problem. This trailer means business. There are so many trailer builders in Texas it's ridiculous. From the small manufacturers to BigTex Trailers Texas is the heart of trailer country.
