What did you make the rake and shovel holder from? I cant tell by the pic, I like that idea.
Here's what mine looks like, its a 54" side gate. Hope it helps...
Here's an in-progress shot from when I built mine. That's a 36" walk behind on there. Only thing is the length of the ramp. A walk behind is real easy to wheelie up and down, but my Stander was a little more tricky to learn how to do it safely. Easy as pie, though, if you pull up curbside and gain 6-8" on height.
The space in the middel of the front is for another ramp that goes from the trailer to the truck bed (gotta get to that one of these days).
^^^ thats one Heck of an idea. more pics?
If NewJersey is referring to my stuff, it's not as nice as some of these other units. I don't have the ramp built yet from the trailer to truck. This trailer was a horse trailer in a former life before I got it (cheap). Really narrow. So, I started widening it from the front, and built this cage-looking deal for the front. Then I got busy- you know how it goes. Tough to rip into a trailer that's gotta be in service.
Then I got an enclosed, and haven't worked on this trailer. I did pick up a hoist/dump setup several weeks ago for $25. It's from a dumping grain cart, minus the running gear.
My plan is for this trailer to be a leaf rig. The entire back of the trailer will become a dump box. (..... if I get around to it!!!!) It's destined to look redneck until it sinks into the ground, but I'll get it looking decent.
The side ramp was a huge time-saver for me. At only around 60" wide, you can see that I had to line everything up single-file, and the equipment you wanted would generally be behind everything.
I was actually refering to the ramp from the trailer to the bed.
That is the perfect trailer.. Who built it?
It was built by B&B Truck Equipment in Byron Center, MI. They really only build custom trailers on occasion, not exactly their main business, but they really build a quality trailer, I've been very happy with that trailer since I've had it.
Thanks for the reply.. It looks great
i like mower brads trailer.
