Picked this up over the weekend from a Brit getting ready to move back "across the pond". Going to see how it works at making it easier to load a deer or hog while using my smaller (250cc) ATV. I'm getting too old and broke up to lift dead animals.

Rated to carry up to 400 lbs.

A bad photo on my part. It has a trailer tongue with a simple pin-type hitch that's not clearly visible from the angle that I took the photo. I may need to remove the front handle if it ends up too close to the rear rack of my ATV. The tongue actually folds under the rest of the body so that you can just use it like a wheel barrow using the front handle. And of course, the bed tilts for easy loading and unloading.

It's rated for just 10mph towing speed, but I suspect I can get a little more if needed. Besides, there's no need to get crazy when pulling a dead hog or deer anyway.

They run $199 plus tax at the store, and I got this one for half that price ($100). I would have offered him less but it showed such little use. I believe in paying a price that I would see as fair if I were the one selling it.

Yes, it appears best to remove the handle bar to give more turn clearance. I have an extension for the ATV hitch that will add another 4-6 inches of clearance, but that may still not be enough. The end of the trailer hitch is also sitting atop the ball on the ATV, giving the trailer a little steeper angle than normal.

Very good find. I think consistently finding good bargains on CL is a skill in itself. My attention span is too short I guess and I tire of all the garbage too soon.

Looks like it'll work just fine.

I may have to get me one.....I'm getting old and broke up too.

That will also work good for hauling bags of corn to your feeder.

Yes, there are times when the ATV racks are full and more space is needed.
