Polar Trailer Heavy-Duty Tandem Axle Trailer - 1500-Lb. Capacity, 22 Cu. Ft., Model# 8262
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.

A Must Have
I purchased this trailer with the optional sides and and it is by far the best utiliy trailer I have ever used. With the optional sides, I am amazed at how much brush and wood it will haul. Assembly was simple. My only regret is that I should have purchased it years ago.

One Rugged Tool
Purchased 3 years ago and still continues to impress. I have used this trailer to carry material (stone dust and rock) repairing and building miles and miles of trails. Also modified the tung and built a deck to haul 14 ft timbers over rough terrain. The tandem walking arm works amazingly well under heavy loads. A little on the pricy side but for heavy work this is your trailer! The Only bad thing I can say is the trailers Dump capability is poor. Be ready to shovel it out.

Could not ask for a better utility trailer. The walking beam axle is a must have for rough terrain. 20mph behind a Polaris RZR is nothing for this rig. Highly recommended! The side rails are also a must for utilizing the full capacity of this trailer. The 2" ball hitch adapter is also very convenient and secure.

Great farm tractor
I did a lot of research looking for the best trailer that would hold up to the demands of year round use.I settled on the Polar trialer and could not be more happy with it. I use it with my Quad and it performs perfect in all weather conditions, Mud, Snow, and rough terrain. This trailer hauls a serius load. Make sure to order the side rails

Received my trailer with the side rail kit. Use it with a quad to cut wood at home. Would say I am a person that cares for but definitely uses things to the limit. This trailer will haul some serious wood with the side kit. The dump is great for wood, but you will end up shoveling some if your hauling dirt. See NO ISSUES with the dump mechanism that I read about in another review. Had a bearing issue on one wheel last Friday. I called mfg and they shipped me new parts out same day. I have UPS tracking number that shows delivery will be Tuesday (4days) NO questions asked. You can't ask for more than that from any company!!! PS.. I heat home fully with wood, cut on 30 acres of two tracks behind my home.

Not a Happy Dumper
Just received this unit, and am VERY dissatisfied. Not complaining about the build quality, but the design is very poor.
It seems like this is common, but this cannot be classified as a dump trailer, as if you try to dump anything, you will soon realize what a poor design it is for that.
I loaded some dirt in it, and tried to dump it out, and ended up shoveling it out.
If it wasn't such a problem, and expensive, I would send it back.
Just my .02 worth, but I am extremely disappointed.
