Engine braking isn’t enough?

For 90% of the places you would go, engine braking is sufficient. Just keep it in low gear and crawl down.
I was just thinking for extreme hills and muddy conditions, a bit of added safety would be good.

Here we are using the firewood test trailer for hauling rock.
Worked well for this and with the rocks wedging into the bottom, they didn't even need to be tied down.

Moving the rocks to another location for another crazy project

The trailer held the weight no problem. So far it's held up great.
Banging over logs and rocks at haspin, towing another tractor, hauling wood.
Takes a beating and keeps going.

Looking at the trailer full of stones just gave me an idea. Thank you Mr Modified. Smile I was just moving stone around in my yard by hand the other day, thinking I need a trailer for this, LOL. Looks like I'll be building a trailer too, a little different ofcource since it will be used mainly for yard work, but you got some nice features I would like to use too, if you don't mind.

Oh no problem. Originally I was gonna put a piece of plywood on this thing to move the rocks, but the bars across the floor actually hold the stones in place so it worked out decent the way it was.

Of course on a larger scale, you'd probably want some sides and a gate and then be able to dump it.

I'm thinking the same size as yours, but move the wheels back more so it will double as a dolly too. I'll keep the open frame like on yours with a small gate and sides that go to the gate instead of angling like yours. Maybe even steering that can lock when off the mower to use in dolly mode. 6 inch rims and maybe tires or just rims with flat sheet metal on them. And your little side bumpers to kick the trailer over to the side so the wheels don't snag on stuff too.

Keeping the trailer fairly close to the tractor helped out a lot in the woods, doesn't get too far out to the sides. Although I guess it does make backing up a bit harder.
