So I have this old flatbed lawn tractor trailer that I've decided to make into a neat little utility trailer, mostly for hauling scrap and yard stuff.

Anyway I thought I'd address the axle first because it was pretty bent:Utilty Trailer Project Img_2102

Not only am I rebuilding the axle...
Utilty Trailer Project Img_2105
Yep! Leaf spring suspension! This is the one I took out of the MTD.
But, back to the pics:Utilty Trailer Project Img_2106
Utilty Trailer Project Img_2107
It'll have the c-channel slide method that the MTD kinda had.

Done!

Tested 'er out and it works great! I still have some bracing to do but I'm planning on working on other stuff on the trailer soon first. So stay tuned and let me know what ya think!

Well I've been using the 'ol suspension trailer a bit lately, but last weekend me and my cousin kinda screwed it up when we loaded it with scrap steel.Utilty Trailer Project 20170322
Basically the U-bolts shifted and the axle flipped forward.
But I decided to fix it by welding the flat steel to the axle so the U-bolts couldn't move:
Utilty Trailer Project 20170323
Utilty Trailer Project 20170324
That should cure that problem. I also thought I should make a panhard rod setup because the axle walks a bit.
Utilty Trailer Project 20170325
I actually used the old tie rod from the MTD! Hahaha!
Utilty Trailer Project 20170326
Utilty Trailer Project 20170327
Utilty Trailer Project 20170328
Utilty Trailer Project 20170329
Works really good so far! Let me know what ya think!

Looks good to me. That ought to take care of the axle moving or flipping again.

Yeah hopefully! Next maybe I'll make a latch for the deck, it's hinged to dump but there's no latch so if you put too much weight at the back it'll just dump all the stuff off haha.

Yeah, haha. If I let people ride on the trailer, I have to remind them not to sit on the back of the trailer cuz if I dont, they're going a$$ over Billy goat for sure hahaha!

Well I got the ol' suspension trailer out and about today

Utilty Trailer Project 20170429

Also I finally got around to making a latch for the deck:

Utilty Trailer Project 20170431
Utilty Trailer Project 20170430
Utilty Trailer Project 20170432

It works really good so far, I can sit at the very back of the trailer without touching the ground and the latch holds the deck down.

Took this really cool picture as well:

Utilty Trailer Project 20170433

Just thought I'd show you guys that hahaha. Let me know what ya think!

Looks good. Nice shot at the end. Also, if you wanted to "lock" it down you can put some kind of pin through the trailer and that hole in the latch.

Thanks mighty! Yeah I was thinking pbout maybe drilling a hole through the board and putting a 3/8" pin through the hole. We'll see haha, I need to make some tie-down points on the side of the deck next. There's nowhere to really tie stuff down. All part of the fun hahaha!

Been a while since I've updated this ol' thread, haha.

Not much new with this little rig, still works great.

Utilty Trailer Project 20180351

The suspension is holding up great too, the axle hasn't come outta place or anything since I last fixed it.

Utilty Trailer Project 20180352

I never did make a pin or anything for the latch, but it still works good, haha.

Utilty Trailer Project 20180353

Just thought I'd post a little update I guess. I kinda wanna start working on this thing again soon, but I got other tractor stuff going on too so who knows when it'll happen hahaha.

An enthusiast you are. Have you ever thought about removable sides for the trailer? Like weld some pockets in there to slip sides into?

I actually have thought about that, like just some simple wooden gates or what have you. It'd be pretty handy at times I imagine.
