    Here's a couple of rear shots.......

    BTW, the best use of this trailer is moving machine tools that don't like to go up a ramp easily. I've moved milling machines and metal lathes with this trailer. Up to 2000 pounds...........real nice loading at ground level. The next one I build will have a simple plate of steel or aluminum for the deck. In this way it will be dead flat to load. This trailer has a deck with structure that is 4" high......

    In the rear view pictures you'll see the spare tire. That is a counter weight to get the rear of the trailer down when it's empty. For a winch I used a side winder type so I can have total control of the lowering process. This type of winch is very easy to control with a load on it. And if you let the handle go it simply stops. You need to manually unwind it. I actually had an electric winch on it at first, but it was more bother than it was worth.





    I'd take more pictures, but a neighbor of mine moving out to Californi bought it from me last summer and used it to move his bikes and outdoor furniture from Massachusetts to LA..........I got the parts to build another one this spring......

    Thanks

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
