    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 :hammerhead:

    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.

    Please let us know how you like using the 55 gal trash bags !!!! I am fighting my trac-vac now with the bags falling in to the can.

    thanks,

    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?
