    You might check the weight capacity on that trailer. I believe they are only 2000#. That is a VERY light duty trailer. Whereas the "lawn store's" trailer might be heavier duty ie. 3500 lbs. Just a heads up! For racks and boxes, try Trimmer Trap or my personal favorite Gridiron (www.novaecorp.com).

    You will not get the same quality from Lowes. I used a trailer from Lowes 6x12 open. It was the cheapest thing on earth. The ramp needs to reinforced with angle iron or the mesh pops off of the ramp frame. It is only tack welded. Lasted one month before i had to put money into the trailer. Also no spare tire or jack. Found this out the hard way. If you do encounter a problem with your trailer who are you going to go back to and tear a new ass to at Lowes.
