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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
