Now I haven't been around the GT world for as long as some of you BUT I'll bet NONE of you seasoned GT nuts have ever seen a dump trailer that not only follows behind your tractor BUT as the ad would seem to infer, it even helps clean up. I do have a question (or two or three).....

 

1) Do you have to train the trailer to follow your tractor or does it come "pre-trained"?

 

2) Since you don't have to "tow" the trailer, can you be doing something else while the trailer picks up the yard?

 

3) And finally, do you have to get close to the objects needing to the cleaned up or just in the general vicinity?

It makes you want to call them & ask where the engine is at.

Wow...and to think, I was starting to have kids to do that kind of work.  Instead of shelling out hundredds of thousands for 2 decades, I could have forked over $75, and gotten better results!

I've heard old folklore about these beasts but I've never seen one.  You would think it would cost more for such majesty.  Truely the holy grail of yard clean up.  I love how it looks so...   normal.

Those chores that trailer has mastered are incredibly amazing for only $75.  I won't be around much this weekend, I'm doing a road trip to go get it.  A deal like that comes up only once in a lifetime.

I had one of those and it was great till it discovered whiskey and women. Last time I saw it poor thing was hitched to a JD hauling manure for tips.

Man! That looks a lot like mine before I modified it. I think I must have broken it!

Yes, you have to watch modifications on these things.  It resets the training process, it won't follow the tractor very well anymore.

 

Can't believe you did that.  It was not very smart to ruin a valuable trailer that way.
