    This looks interesting.(the trailer)

    Can't see too much from the photos, but looks like it could be improved by beefing up the whole thing, and balance doesn't look right.

    Might be worth a look for anyone down that way, if just for curiosity.
    i reckon the drawbar weight would be huge with that HUGE box up front of the axles.

    shame its so over engineered, you'd be able to carry tools, and about a quarter of that tip bin full of clippings before you would be illegally overweight.

    bigger isnt better with trailers, often more trailer, means less carry capacity.

    I thoroughly agree as we just went through the whole process of designing a balanced trailer as far as ball weight goes and that trailer goes against all the principles what we learnt in the process.

    Recently someone was asking how we all secured our push mowers in our trailers.

    At the moment I'm still using HD bungee cords but this little idea looks pretty good. Would be easy enough to weld up yourself too if you had some scrap steel lying around.

    Been looking around for a sprayer, particularly for liquid fertilizers like Seasol and Powerfeed. Have come across some brass siphon injectors similar to this
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Hozon-Siphon-Mix...item1c1d6fa7df
    Thought they might be good. I particularly like they way the yanks attach it at the tap and not at the nozzle, means you can use a regular spray with a trigger. I am looking at getting some at cheaper prices then this if anyone is interested.
