Farm-Tuff Utility Trailer - 2200-Lb. Capacity, Model# 03813
Wagon first impression: EXCELLENT!
I just got my Farm-Tuff running gear today (on sale) and I am very impressed with the strength and quality of the frame. I was expecting cheap welds on a cheap frame with cheap paint however this wagon running gear is MADE IN CANADA and is a cut above the cheap China stuff I was expecting. Nice welds, strong frame, good paint. The box was packed well and the parts and hardware complete. A refreshing change from the CHINA stuff I am used to. As usual the Customer Service at my West Allis WI store was wonderful.
I'll add more comments as I build this running gear into a vegetable wagon.

I read a lot of the negitive reviews before I ordered, but thought I would try it anyway. Glad I did. It took about 15 Min. to put together and it's great.

All Purpose Trailer
I received my Farm-Tuff Trai ler very promptly and assembly was a breeze. One note to a fault however, the grease fittings on the wheels were loose and one of them (right front) had stripped threads. Overall this was the only negative in the product. I installed an oak floor on the trailer with pressure treated timber sides with removable panels (stake body brackets). I use it primarily for hauling firewood that is harvested from my property. I can tow it either from my John Deere 4100 tractor or my lawn tractor depending upon the load. I am very pleased with this product and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone.

Overall a nice product
Pro's - Easy to put together, setup to help you customize, strong and stable (if you use your common since).
Con's - Don't agree with some of the hardware provided (get yourself some locking nuts to save yourself in the future), low ply tires (easy to get flat).

Farm-Tuff Utility Trailer
I picked up my trailer at my nearest Northern Tool Store. The workers there were very friendly and helpful to me. I got the trailer home and it was very easy to assemble. It is well built. I made a small scale farm barge box wagon to pull with my garden tractor. The grandchildren love to go for rides in it. I would buy another one in a heartbeat. I am very satisfied.

good product for the price
I used this trailer to build a water buggy to water my garden. A 200 gal. water tank is just about it will carry. The trailer was easy to assyemble and put a deck on with the supplied brackets. The grease fittings on the wheels needed to be adjusted out away from the hub just to get a standard end on them other than that no major issues. I expect to get many years of use out of it.

small but strong- good value
The farm tuff utility trailer became the base for a chicken tractor. Had to use a couple of 5 by 5's to get above the wheels, but then was able to build a 4 foot by 8 foot chicken coop on it. It pulls around easily with an ATV or lawn tractor. The small attachment tab in the back, allows me to pull the chicken run with the coop. It does not turn very sharp as the wheels have a stop, but I am very pleased with the trailer.

Good sturdy trailer
I just bought this trailer during the winter and haven't used it yet. I'm currently deciding on a platform to build on it. The frame is very well built and looks rugged. The front wheels have a sturdy steering linkage and the large tires will be great going over rough terrain. I'm going to use it behind my tractor to get firewood.

This is a great tool to have. I have used it in parades and at the farm to haul out firewood. and the best part is using it at church camp to haul kids around camp and to church. this wagon took about 6 hrs to build and another day to paint.
Great all around wagon.

Farm or ATV Wagon
I needed a small farm wagon to move car bodies around when rebuilding old cars. Found this wagon at Northern Tool. It is 4" wide outside wheel to outside wheel and works great for holding a car body and allowing you to move it around. Built a mounting frame by simply mounting 2 4x4's the length of the wagon. Specs say it will haul 2200 pounds and I think it will. I can now roll the car bodies in and out of my shop with no help. Trailer could be used to haul hay, firewood or most anything around a farm or shop. Took me about 30 minutes to unbox and assemble when I received it. I am very happy with my purchase.
