That's a good looking trailer Brian, hope you are happy with it.


Finally decided to sell mine, had it for a long time and it's been a good one but haven't used it much since I gave up doing palms a few years ago. Galvanized so no rust.

Selling it to the guy that used to work for me, from mid 80's. His wife nagged him to leave and go out by himself, that was ok, he still helped me when needed.

Lasted about three years, then she nagged him to get a real job. That was ok, he got a job with the local council, full benefits and every second Monday off so he'd work with me and do side jobs on Saturday.

Then she packed up and left after 35 years, so he had to remortgage his house to pay her off.

So, looks like my trailer will live on doing tree work. And people wonder why you like being single.:drink:

I've used it a few times and it's really solid. Much better built than my other one. The only mod I've made is the tarp. I lowered the mounting location in front to get the spool below the height of the box, and relocated the back hooks to the back of the doors. I don't haul sand or gravel so tarp hooks on top of the box won't work if there is a log in the way. I also emailed the manufacturer to suggest these mods since they won't cost a dime to implement.

And comparing weight slips from the dump it appears this trailer is about 1100-1200 lbs heavier than the old one.

Axles are rated for 9000 lbs. They are not Dexters, not sure of the brand. I remember the guy I spoke with saying that Dexters may be assembled in the US but most of the components come from overseas.

So this belongs to a local guy that uses it for work on his property. The winch is behind the license plate. Another pulley/fair lead goes into the receiver and/or the two brackets on the bumper. Winch line goes over the cab and over the top pulley and down to the bottom front of the insert. Spool and dump. He says he can haul and dump about 1/2 yard of rocks or dirt capacity. I mean, it is a Toyota for Pete's sake. Said it dumps fire wood pretty fair as well......
