Home Depot Trailers for ATV?

3 posts in this topic

Does anybody own a 4x8 trailer with the fold down ramp from Home Depot? How does it pull? Enough room w/ATV on it? Thoughts?

I am not sure which trailer they have now. I own one of the previous trialers they had(Snow Bear?) that are 4x8, and the front and rear gate can be put down to convert it to 4x12 within a minute. They are a welded design and they are excellent trailers rated to #3500 pounds. The only issue I have with mine is the tailgate spot welds break eventually and I had to have them properly welded.

I think the newer ones have a folding rear gate which is probably due to breaking welds of the 1st trailers.. their way of making it more convienient and durable. I am sure they are a great trailer. I am not unhappy with mine, its been a great trailer and has hauled my atv's, and many heavy loads in its time. Its origional tires are now bald and need replacing.. other than the gate needing rewelded, no issues at all.

I like the long, narrow flatbed design. It allows me to pull 2 ATV's, on in fron of the other, or 1 with a ice house connected. The longer trailer pulls much nicer down the road vs side by side.

Good trailer.

I also have a Snow Bear (Home Depot, made in Canada) older style as mentioned (2000). Got it used from a coworker who used it to haul his ATV. As far as I know it worked OK for that, I use it for a utility trailer. It's actually 4-1/2 x 8 and you can lay 4 x 8 sheets flat in it with the tailgate on. It's built good and heavy duty. The only drawback I've found is the extendable tounge design for making it longer also makes it less stable and may vibrate. Overall I'm happy with it, especially since I got it for less than half the cost as new laugh.gif

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
