    i posted the manufacture of this product a while back but here it is again it would be perfect for a crew of one or two guys. it could easily lift a wb and some small hand equipment:cool:

    while it seems like a great idea in theory i don't think theres much practical use for it.

    I've got to agree with jajwrigh here. i know plenty of guys that setup and break down 2 planks on every yard so they don't have to trailer. I'd rather pull a trailer all day than worry about the planks slipping off the truck or the machine off the planks.

    No matter what one thinks of the cost, I must say that's about the COOLEST thing I've ever seen! You'd probably get the money back just from new customers who want to see it work every week!

    I just bought a 7x14' trailer, tandem axle, undercoated, treated plywood floor and wall, double dome light/wall switch, extra ceiling height, 4 wheel elect. brakes, 36" side door, spring-assisted rear ramp door, and all with a 5 yr warranty for $3,995! Though I'll admit that is cool, I can't see it being more effecient than this trailer that will serve to protect, store, and transport my equipment, not to mention the advertising benefits. Good thought, though.

    Cleatus, he uses the trailer to carry his money, he cuts the grass with a lazer beam.
