New Trailer


Looking to purchase a new trailer. I've seen some 8X10 at lowes for 700. Has anyone bought one of these before. How are they?

Re: New Trailer


You should be able to get a real landscape trailer brand new for 50-60 bucks a month. Get bigger than you think you need now.

Where are you located? I'm in PA and there is a shop called The Hitch Man. They can help you find the right size and brand for your landscaping gear - https://thehitchmaninc.com/. Looks like they have MD locations too.

Wow, and I thought I was the only one who had one. I LOVE my 5'2"x8'. Strong enough to have trimmer, hand tool, and an overhead basked mounted to rails. Could never buy a cheaper one.

And when I get a dump trailer, it will be a Quality Steel and Aluminum brand one too!

We need a fan club.
