    Nice job! Does it have a ramp?, hard to tell with the garbage cans there.

    yea its got a gate, its short because it the whole trailer tilts, it might prove to be a problem with more than one mower, but i will deal with that when it happens. And yes i do have some reflective tape on it. I have a few stripes on the back and a few on the tongue, I've walked into one two many times :dizzy: I will try and get some more pics up soon.

    It could be the view, but the tougne looks extremly light. Be sure to not overload it. Otherwise looks good

    How much did it cost to build it? Ive been thinking of building my own but it seems it wouldnt be worth it. Any suggestions on where to get cheap metal (material)?

    Looks great!!! Are the tail-lights on the trailer or the tailgate? I had mine on the trailer but broke them all the time. I moved them to the gate but that wouldn't work on a tilt trailer. Otherwise, nice job
