look awfully nice but from being a lawnmowr dealer and repair shop the tailgate looks like the majority out ther the load angle will catch most mower decks out ther because of to steep angle. the gates that are expanded mesh when empty really catch the air and make then suck for pulling long distance for fuel mileage. i modified mine so at least when empty it lays down into the bed. it really makes difference in fuel usage. for lawn mowertrailers drop axles are the way to go far as what we have seen here.

You are sort of right here. The pic doesn't show the true angle on the ramp cuz the front of the trailer is a bit low and the drive has a fair crown right there that you can't really see in the pic. If I had made it specifically for lawn tractors I would have used a 2000# axle with a lower drop and 13" tires which lowers the deck about 5" and makes it nice. When I built it it was more intended for 4-wheelers and utility type. It wasn't til it was done that I thought to list it here. On flat ground you can load mowers fine, but it is marginal, you have to watch not to have the wheels on a hump or the ramp in a hole or you can have trouble. As far as the ramp goes I never thought of the fuel thing. When I last built these for sale gas was $1.25/gal. lol.

It has a torsion axle. Most torsion axles are adjustable for how much drop you want. I guess no one should ever buy a closed in trailer because it would use so much fuel. I just don't understand why people are so bent on finding fault with Jons trailer??? 99% of the people on this forum couldn't even dream of bulding a trailer as nice as Jons.
