    I'm going to buy a new trailer. All signs point to PJ being the best and having the most features that I want. I did the search on this site but if anybody has anything to add I'd like to hear it. seems that PJ has some nice features. Radial tires,spring assist gate,powder coated, lights that are recessed, swivel jack so the tailgate doesn't hit it, channel iron as opposed to angle iron. i have to go 50 miles to get it but it seems worth it compared to what they sell close by. All opinions are welcome.

    I've had this same model new since 03 and never had any major problems with it. I think you'll be more than happy with anything made by PJ.

    do you have any problem lifting the trailer empty onto your trailer hitch or do you have to use the jack. I know it's a bit heavier than the angle iron trailer I have now.

    Its not too bad if its empty, due to the counter weight of the gate on the back. But if its loaded down you'll have to use the jack.

    Thanks. I should have said empty. No way with the mowers on.
