That looks like a well built unit. Bolt on wheels and heavy axle.

I also noticed the bold on wheels, looks like a good solid trailer. Good luck with it!

Nice sturdy looking trailer. Did someone paint it yellow or was that the original colour?

Painted yellow by owner should be red

Yep, you can see where he taped off the decal, leaving the original red just around the OE stencil painted yellow lettering.

Nice.
For sure, a treasure, to compliment any Bush Hog collection.
Are you going to turn it into a red trailer?

Yes it will be painted back to the original colors......will be needing Daniels services for the decals on this one.

The girl that sold it too me said they find, use, sell alot of the lawn trailers and she said she had never seen one that had as few dents in the floor, not rusted out in the front of the trailer, etc like this one......I got the impression she thought this one may be better built or at least heavier built than the simplicity trailers that they find and collect. ( she made this comment after I had already agreed to buy it Posted Image )

I do have a factory sheet uploaded on the bush hog dump cart in the bush hog manual section.

Just a lucky find for me......just happen to be cruising craigslist at the right time.

Congratulations on a nice addition to your collection. This has got to be a very unusual piece considering how hard it is to find Bush Hog tractors in decent shape. You were able to find what I'm sure is a hard to find trailer in what looks to be good shape.
