Easy to assembly, great workhorse
My wife and I recently moved on to an acreage. Along with that came a subcompact tractor and a whole lotta work to do. The trailer was delivered as promised, and was easy to assemble (I don't consider myself mechanically inclined). We also purchased the side/front railings, which I would highly recommend.
So far I have loaded it to the hilt with dirt, sod, compost, etc - heavy items - and no issue with stability at all.
The biggest issues I've had is hooking up the trailer after loaded, as I needed to detach the trailer to use the tractor's bucket to fill it. It would be nice to have some sort of hitch stand so that I could just back up the tractor after the trailer was filled. Having said that, I learned to load the trailer towards the rear, which made it easier to lift the tongue on to the tractor hitch. The "dump" feature is somewhat limited, and I always have to shovel out the contents.
Our next modification will be to add a 100-gallon watering tank to it to water our new trees. I expect that won't be any issue, given the quality and stability of the unit.
Overall, an excellently-made trailer that will benefit us for years to come.

dont leave the garage without it
Its a great trailer for my 4wheeler. I rarely leave the garage without it. Loading wood, dirt, leaves, brush, tools, etc.. The dumping part is less than perfect but the rest of the trailer makes up for it. Recommend the 4 wheel trailer over the 2 wheel. Seems to pull better in snow, mud and ruff ground. I also bought the recommend buying the rail extension kit.

This is a work horse! Load it a haul it over anything! This is a great trailer and easy to use. I pull it with a Polaris Ranger and over stack it with wood without an issue. Floats through the woods very easy.

This wagon is wonderful! It'll go wherever my 4-wheeler can go. I use it to get firewood from a logged out area. Uneven terrain is not a problem. (7) loads fills my 16 foot trailer. I don't believe you can overload this wagon with firewood.

Just what I Needed!
Have been using the trailer for three months now and it does exactly what I need it to do. Still small enough to get up the hill and into front yard to haul leaves, limbs etc. to the burn pile out back. Heat with wood only, and the trailer will haul about 1/4 cord wood at a time. So from the splitter to wood racks is a breeze now day's. Extension rails are a must. Now only two trips from wood racks to the deck every three weeks to keep wood in the house. Use it to haul the trash out once a week and it even does that. - Tandem wheels seem to be a must also if you get it loaded down and have to travel rough ground - Rides smoother. Has made my life much easier, and will take a lot of abuse.

polar tandom axle trailer
I bought this trailer for picking up sand .leaves and snow, etc. Great trailer for traveling over uneven ground and not tipping. Also added top side rail extension so I could add more brush I had to pick up. Like other reviews I've read the only real problem is with dumping, why does the tongue allow the dump to turn sideways when dumping sand especially. All in all it's a great ,heavy duty trailer that has numerous uses.

Great Wagon seems to do everything I wanted it for, wide track, good flotation good construction. Was shorted the tandem arms for the axles, or lost in shipping called customer service they promptly had the manufacturer send me a set of arms, but we used it with single wheels until we got the arms. Worked great. Going to buy the side extensions for it

One Great Trailer!
I purchased this product a year ago and have been using it very frequently through the winter to move my firewood from my storage area to my home. I have also used it during the summer and fall months to collect my stove length wood from my 100 Acres of woodlot that I live on. This is all to say that this trailer gets quite a fair bit of use!
The dumping dynamics are a bit of a pain and slows down the unloading of my wood, but the trailers ability to go almost anywhere and it's low weight makes up for any shortcomings in the unloading department. Oh and make sure to buy the accessory side board kit!
My biggest concern at this point (after 1 year of service) is the wheel bearings. I've noted a bit of a scraping sound in the wheels and this Fall, I took it out of service to grease everything. The bearings are shielded and won't really take a greasing, so I'm alittle disappointed at that. In anticipation of a bearing failure, I will have to do a bit of research and visit my local machine shop to see if there is a bearing option to replace them. As long as I can get my bearings replaced in the event of a failure, I would have no hesitation in recommending this.
I've been using ATV's all of my life and quite a few homemade trailers...this is the nicest general purpose ATV trailer that I've ever had!

Use this all the time moving dirt! But what it is great for we use it to move concrete over soft ground 1000 lb at a time.
