Keep the trailers around the kid will use them for things and hauling around and then when 1 breaks you have the other to use till you fix the first one. Been there and done that a few times now. Heck even my Big ATV Wood hauling trailers have there moments when the dont answer the bell for a full 15 round day. They may make it to round 7 or 8 and then are done till they get some Loving Repair work or a blown out tire fixed.

I know but I have backup trailers for trailers,

as you plan to use it for a day and blow out a tire or snap a axle and have to go to the backup unit to get the job done till you find time to fix the problem.

The Allis Chalmers Trailer which I have had 3 years has had the Hitch reworked where it attach's to the axle frame. 1 tire snapped axle off twice and other tire snapped axle off 1 time. If It only saw use behind Garden Tractor it would be okay but it gets put behind ATVS and kids go mach 3 down the trail regardless of the bumps and the trailer is catching air as it bounces along. Im sure the sudden bumps due the axle no favors when they are hit.

This is the backup to the Allis trailer and needs some loving as well. 1 tire goes flat over time and rear gate will fall out till I put chain across the back holding it in tight. Have had wheels fall off as well the cotter pin holding them on will fail and off comes the wheel. That is a 5 min fix and not to bad.

It's always nice to have back up's especially in your case. Checking out yard carts in stores they definitely don't make them like they use to. I really like the 2 gorilla cart wagons I have. I always thought of getting another one to make it look like a barge wagon, or a dumping poly wagon.

Is that cart an agrifab?

Fox the Cart was free from CL like 5 years ago. I have no idea the brand name on it. I pretty sure there is not a sticker on it at all. I had 1 tire not hold air and I put a tube in it took me like 3 hours to get the tube in it was not fun that I remember. The other tire now holds air for like a month before its flat.

I have like 8 or 9 small trailer's around here.

I did a trailer roundup count on another message board so sorry for the long post but I went and found that to copy paste here.

there's like 9 trailers so I have more trailers than ATV's

Heck Ill due a quick rundown just to make sure.
1.Wheel barrow Trailer Used mostly with the Honda 125 for youngest kid. Free from My Dad
2.Small Yard trailer for Garden Tractor Used with small ATV's Free has 1 tire goes flat after 1 week.
3.Orange Trailer Used with kids ATV and Hauls the Maple sap have 5gal bucket frame made so buckets dont slide around n spring as it tracks behind ATV tires so not alot of drag. Cost $100 I think or $200
4.Wood Trailer center balanced axle which is nice can load with wood and still able to hook up to ATV when loaded. Free from a friend
5. Wood trailer with spring axle. Biggest wood hauling trailer I have with spring axle that I have a bench made for kid hauler as well. Free 1/2 mile down the road from my house 15 years ago
6.Single Place ATV trailer tilt deck 4x8 has hauled alot of ATV's for me over the years, My Brother bought it new when he got his 2002 Honda Foreman 450 Have has this one the longest.
7. Snowmobile trailer 2 place I got this when I went up to 2 atvs' and need to haul both from the in house town out to the woodland. I think I traded a computer for it.
8. Trailer for lumber hauling just a frame with long tongue and a axle pretty much.
9. Log cart axle and tilt deck as a log arch for if I get into the needing to haul trees to the sawmill for cutting still need to get sawmill set up.
10. theres a trailer 5x9 I think under the pine trees that I made a cover for and has a bunch of the wifes' outside decor stuff in it that came out of the outhouse shed that got taken over to be the chicken feed storge shed.

There that is the trailer count that ATV's use.

there is also the car trailer but I don't know if that counts but the ATV's have moved that around the yard when needed

I should go and take pictures of all of these so I would know what I all have.

Lol you got me beat by far. My wife wonders why I need the atv with the dump box, the now 3 dump carts, and the flat rack. I just tell her it all depends on the job. My neighbor has 3 single axle trailers all different sizes, a car hauler, a skidloader trailer, and a gooseneck. Same reasoning as me......

Had to try out the cart tonight. I know I did a good job on a buy or project when the wife says " I wasn't expecting that to be so nice" or " is that the same one you had in the shop ?"( said that about my digger, the plow and now cart. I'm tempted to buy a junky farmall h for 500.00 show her, then a month later replace it with a 2500 restored one ) Started out small. Jr wanted to build a fort with the ice chunks left from plowing. It held him, the wife, and dog, so about 215 lbs.

Great to have a cart you can use as hard as you want without being concerned about aesthetics... (y)

Also like the "self clean-up / self disposal" nature of the fort construction...:LOL:

Chuck
We built one similar and the next week it was 40 degrees out. This time it should stay a little bit longer lol

It's going to be cold this week so I wanted to make sure there was enough wood in the house for the fire place. I figured it was a good time to push the cart a little bit. I could tell there was some weight in it. Made it out of the shed and to the house no issues.
