ATV Forest & Farm Dump Trailer
« on: August 12, 2014, 12:41:46 pm »
You may have seen our newest product on some other threads but here is all the info about it.
 

  
Here is Kevin coming out of the woods after cleaning up a tree that came down with the last storm.  All his tools fit in the tool box located under the trailer. 
 

 
Tool box holds 3 cubic feet of cargo space with an additional 5" of space to bottom of trailer.  Logrite suggests using it for your chainsaw, gas, safety gear and of course a Logrite cant hook and a bottle of Bluecreeper. ;D



 
Empty for your viewing pleasure. ;D
dims:  110" L x 50" w x 44" tall, (50" trail rated)
max gvw: 2000 lb.

 

 
Full of firewood with back panel removed for viewing.

 

 
It features four removable sides in case you want to load it and strap down your cargo.
 

 
 

 

 
Here is a good pic of the spacious tool box and the scissor jack we use for dumping.  We use a scissor jack to make it simple to use and maintain. No wiring or batteries required! It also provides for control of the load.


All this could be yours for an introductory price of $2100.

Nice design, and nice build!

Is the 50" width for the trailer box, or to the outside edge of the wheels?

Any thought of offering a walking beam axle set-up as an option?

In addition to selling top of the line equipment I see Kevin uses the best gas can avaible.

Neat idea!

I have a question would it work to turn the jack so the handle is on the side instead of the front, I realize it would require a different block on the end of the jack to provide the pivot.

That jack is well protected where it is. Would the handle be prone to snagging on things if it was out to the side?

That is true, the reason I was asking was it looked like the box contents would be in the way of turning the handle, perhaps it is not as close to the box as I thought.

 Nice trailer, how is the center of gravity once loaded,  I have onesimilar to this that may have a little bit narrower wheel span from side to side, I really need to watch it when coming out of the woods with a load on ...  Need to do some modifications and spread the wheels out some on  mine  ;)

It looks like a really nice trailer.  It reminds me of the old Pronovost trailers a little bit, but I don't think they offer those with a single rear axle anymore.  I like the single axle. 


Is the cart able to be dumped "freely"?  In other words, bypass the hand crank?  So if you were filling it with something like leaves or other lightweight/high bulk items you wouldn't have to stand there and turn the handle to slowly dump it.

Also, you mention holding the cant hook.  Is there a spot for the cant hook?  My 48" doesn't look like it would fit in that box.   ;D

I like it!  smiley_thumbsup

How much does this trailer weigh? 

It looks pretty lightweight but very strong.  It may be a good match for my "ATV".   ;D

In my opinion the handle on the jack would be harder to use if it was on the side

50" to outside edge of tires

It has torsion flex axles so that it has suspension

The current problem the three tractor users in my family have (dad, my brother, and myself) is that we have not yet found a trailer that will empty when dumped. We have to dump what will come out, pull forward, return the trailer to its travel position, then push the remainder out by hand or with a shovel.

Question: If full loaded with dirt, grass clippings, or similar will it full empty when dumped?

I do not think dirt and grass clippings will all  dump out (assuming level ground), however put in something more valuable like corn, soybean, oat, barley, or wheat seeds and the probability of it all dumping out increases.

The bed goes up past 45º and will stay in that position so you can pull forward.  That should dump anything in the box.

you can see one at Windy Ridge in Tamworth, NH as he has one on the floor or at the Fryeburg Fair on Woodmen's Day.
