Another great Craigslist deal...(Tractor hauler)

Recommended Posts

I just brought home this 6'x10' utility trailer. It was advertised on Craigslist as a 5'x8' for $200 which was a good deal... but when I saw a 6x10 I was thrilled.


The only repair needed is 1 broken deck board...The lights all work, tires & wheels look new.

That is a steal for a 6 X 10! Nice buy! I have a 4 X 8 and it is nice for one tractor, but too small for any more than that. I would love one the size of yours, but not sure my little Corolla would pull it with two tractors and a few other things on it. Steve

That's one heck of a deal. I've seen a bunch of ratty looking homemade trailers that people wanted $1000 for. Really a nice little trailer just right to go get those tractors you happen to run across. Easy to pull too.

Nice trailer at a nice price. Would never do for me though :O:O;);) You need at least 6 1/2 by 18 to get six on without stacking....(6 x 16 if they are all short wheel base foot draggers):D:D:D

Steve a 4 x 8 Menards trailer is what I used for many years. Is ok unless you find a pkg. deal with mower, blower, tiller, etc...I've been there a few times

Greg, I'm sure the trailer I use is WELL beyond that. Its either a 1994 or 95, can't remember. It is used by no less than a half dozen people regularly, and probly another half dozen occasionally. I know I alone have had it as far east as the Cholchester Ct. show, and as far West as the Fort Worth Texas auto auction, and I don't own it. It's on its third set of wheel bearings, 4th or 5th set of lights, who knows how many tires, needs its 3rd deck, needs a new set of spring shackles and bolts, and has hauled literally everything I can think of, from scrap to full size trucks to lumber, rock, small buildings, small farm tractors, garden tractors etc. Little trailers just don't cut it around here LOL

The best (or worst) part, It can't be replaced for less than double what it cost new. It was bought at dealer cost and picked up at the factory in Ky? or Tn? Brand new it was just over $800 :O:O Of course, for that price it came without rims and tires.

I'm afraid it'll cost ya more than double...this 6 x 10 I got is priced here at Menards and Lowes for well over &1000. Yours likely has brakes, twin axle, and much bigger...size & price $$$

Ya know Brett I was actually worried about that until I found out the seller was a ex-cop. It was his new wifes ex's husband's trailer. She got it from him & I got it from her with the best dicount ever: DIVORCE The cheapest things you can buy come from an ex who's dumping "THAT BAST-RD's" belongings...:D

Even though it is made of steel, I'll bet it's lighter than aluminum. Heat rises, and that trailer must be HOT for a price like that!:D

Real nice Greg---I too have been scouring the (Ohio) ads/Craigslist for a 5 x 10---and decent ones are running $500 to 1k. I would also like to eliminate the tall end gate and use a couple of separate ramps if possible and maybe add a toolbox on the front for my old engine parts etc... Looks like you have a real nice house too!!

Thanks Steve. I was amaized driving home how much drag that big ramp/gate has with no equipment onboard. I like the toolbow idea! The p.o. had a car battery mounted in case he needed to jumpstart a tractor. (It was used for a mowing buisness)
