    Does anyone know where I can get a GOOD lawn service trailer without paying out the rear for it, I would like to stay in the Minnesota/Wisconsin area. Right now we have a 14' 2001 Tomahawk lawn trailer that is already falling apart, and a 16' 1998 H&H lawn trailer that the welds keep breaking on...Im looking for a 18' lawn service trailer - dovetail would be nice, breaks the whole deal.

    Let me know if you can help........Thanks

    If you are looking for used, put an ad in the "Free" local paper. Also, ask at all the Equipment Rental places if they have a trailer for sale. That's how I bought my first trailer. I was going to order a new one, but needed a loaner right then. I ended up buying the loaner.

    I agree that used trailers are hard to find. Also, they don't come down in price very much.

    I'm always on the lookout for a used trailer at a good price.

    Good luck.
