    Been getting really tempted for a small trailer to haul mulch and loom with lately. Anybody got experience with these and what to expect to pay for something that could haul say 3-4 yards.

    A John Deere x500. I bought it second hand because there's no way I can spend what those cost new!

    It has a locking rear differential which is awesome for a lot of spots where my last one struggled.

    great choice, I have its little brother x350 and have had zero issues in the last 5 years of ownership. The Kawasaki motor is smooth and reliable.

    Yup, this has a 25 HP Kawasaki on it and the 48" deck rather than the 54 (which is good for me, I have a few tighter spots).

    It has a few cosmetic things but nothing bad and mechanically seems like it was very well cared for. Transmission fluid, belts, air filter, and blades all seem brand new. I put new plugs in it last night even though the old ones didn't really look bad and will change the oil tonight so I have a starting point. I also ordered a new seat because the one that's on it has some cracks.

    Are you looking for something for the truck or your lawn tractor?

    Harbor frieght build a trailer is the best and cheapest way to go. You can also build sides that you can take off and on....that is what I did....works like a charm.

    There are 2 different ones that you can get.

    One of them holds 1195lbs, like this:
    https://www.harborfreight.com/1195-lb-capacity-48-in-x-96-in-heavy-duty-folding-trailer-62648.html
    the other, holds 1720lbs. this is the one that I have.
    https://www.harborfreight.com/1720-lb-capacity-48-in-x-96-in-super-duty-folding-trailer-62647.html

    Both of them can fold up and be rolled away for easy storage. All you have to do is cut a 4x8 sheet of plywood (yes I know how expensive wood has become unfortunately), cut is in half and bolt it to the front and back of the platform. The frame also has side girders that fit 2x4's uprights so you can build sides and hold whatever you may need. Then the sides can be taken on or off to carry something wider then the trailer itself if need be. I can take some pictures of mine when I get home today. It really is the most economical way to go and it takes up the least space due to it folding up.

    Seen some cool builds with those.

    PS - I have a chunk of plywood, don't remember the exact size, yours for the taking I can pull the dimensions tonight. Not a full 4x8 closer to half that size.

    I thought about buying one of those for a heavier duty yard trailer to pull behind the ATV. They have a smaller one that's more like 4x4. I might just get their $120 cart, though. Not nearly as heavy duty, but I mostly just use it for small amounts of dirt and such where the dump feature would be helpful.

    My current contraption is made of road signs, 2x10s, and mismatched (not even the same size) lawn tractor wheels. I bet if I put it on the side of the road with a free sign, it'd go quick though.

    And then there's me: "That thing looks like it works fine why you need more?"

    I also only have 1/3 acre to contend with for my yard. So I don't have to worry about all these shenanigans :D

    Looked up weights for mulch and rock, think i might actually need something more heavy duty lol. But for the price it'd take years of paying delivery fee to make it worth it...hmmmm

    Mulch you would not have a problem.....especially with the 1700lb one. Rock, yes you would but you could make a couple of trips.

    Around the house and at slow speeds, absolutely. When I did work on a farm, or at my parents' house growing up, we never gave a second thought to 'overloading' something. On the road, obviously the stakes are higher and I wouldn't do it but around the yard you do what you need done with the tools/equipment you have available (aka, just send it).
