Off-Road Utility Trailer - 800-Lb. Capacity, 12 Cu. Ft., Model# 108380
I had bought a metal trailer a few years ago and it needed alot of work to maintain it to be operable. It had folded in half over the axle once but I was able to bend it back and sell it for $50.00. It also did not have the ground clearance that this one has.
I use this my new trailer for hauling fire wood and hauling compost with the tree I plan to plant on my ranch sitting on top of the compost to it`s final destination. I also haul around alot of river rock and this trailer will accomidate a good load of rock compared to my old one.
I would definitely recomend this trailer but you will have to buy a ball hitch for the tong.

tongue needs redesigned
Tongue that hooks to the trailer is not designed heavy enough, nor is it long enough. Even slight turns, the wagon would hit the tractor tires or the tractor fender and it would rub. The tongue is thin and not wide enough. The tongue bent the first day I used it with only about a 500 pound load. Might be good for hauling leaves, nothing more.

Great trailer for the expense
After a super quick assembly, (the bucket on backwards the first time...oops!), I put this trailer to work hauling supplies; 6 x 80 pound bags of concrete and tools up and down the wooded hills of my property for two days straight. I was installing 8"x8"x8' bullards for "fencing" to keep poachers off my place. It worked hard, as designed,and towed beautifully behind my ATV. I was considering purchasing this model over the others available before it went on sale, but saving $50 made it a slam dunk. I've been looking online and in stores for a few months in preparation for this most recent job and couldn't be happier with the construction and quality. It is worth far more than I paid!!!

great trailer for the money
I like how the wheels are not mounted on an axle which would get hung up on stumps/ rocks/ uneven terrain. Tires are nice and wide to support heavy loads in soft soil. Plastic dump body is quite thick and rigid. I use it for picking up branches; hauling firewood, dirt, & stone.

This is a good trailer for use around the yard. I pull it behind a beefed up gas golf cart. I takes any punishment I need it to handle. My only negative comment is that it does not emply well when dumped. I still have to rake the contents out or remove the tounge from the hitch and stand the trailer on its end. Both methods will completely empty the trailer. I had a trailer from a big home improvement center. It was steel and had week wheels. It did, however, have a tail gate. When dumped, it emptied most if not all of the contents. With this design you do loose the strength. Size being equal, this trailer is stronger and takes punishment better.

Easy assembly. The trailer is well made and sturdy. Love the fact that the trailer swivels. Because of the angle of the back of the trailer, you will need to shovel a little to get heavy, compact items like soil completely out.

I bought one of these trailers from a diffrent company about 15 years ago. It is about the same size and caliber and has been used and abused steadily over the years and I thought if one is good two would be better.
I recieved this trailor and was very dissapointed. The 15 year old trailor will still outlast the new one hands down. The plastic tub is to thin and the dump is a joke. When dumping the tub will not break over far enough to dump (you end up shoveling half the load off) and if you try to push the load over manually the sides of the tub will bow out to the extent of damage.
I will get my moneys worth from it by using it for very light duty only while the 15 year old trailor handles the bigger jobes easily. All in all I would should have kept my money.

A little small
I think the picture in the catalog is "actual size". I wish there were more pictures, in the catalog/online catalog, indicating the size of the trailer. I was expecting bigger. The trailer will be good for small projects. I was also expecting a better dump height. There will be work involved to get all your material to dump. I'm going to try a taller tire and see if that helps. This is pretty much a tow behind wheel barrow but you can dump all your material with a wheel barrow. Well made though.

Dont tell anybody, but this is made by Polar with the same standards.
This trailer is bullet proof. If you break it, its because you ran over it with the skid steerl
Not big, but just righf for an atv. About the same as two wheelbarrows.
If you get it on sale, its a no-brainer.

Good product but not as advertised
As noted before this is NOT a 12 CF tub. The outside envelope of the tub is approximately 12 CF---the same as the box that it ships in. However, the useful volume of the tub is a little over 6 CF by my measurement---a little bit of fudging. Also, the grease fittings (zerks) on the wheels are useless---they appear to be metric and don't work with my gun. I had to replace with SAE units. The wheel bearings are sleeve type; I wish they were genuine roller type. Otherwise, OK.
