I got this with my Gravely purchase. It is a very cool trailer, 36"X60". I've been snooping for info but have not found a thing on it. It does dump and has zerks on the wheels. It came with the Gravely ball hitch. I would like to keep it, so I made a regular trailer hitch that goes on with one bolt. That way, I can change it back if needed.

Here's the new hitch, paint is drying.

I am trying to get a good pic of the decal so I can have a new one made.

Bigger tires? ( just a bit bigger). Wooden sides?

Those are 4.80X8 tires on narrow wheels. Might find some of the 5.30?X8's to fit it.

I have thought about wood side boards, not real tall though. Maybe a 1X6 a couple inches above the sides?

Nice trailer find and it's a very good size. Great for hauling firewood out of the woods. I have one of those 10 cubic feet agri-fab trailers. It great, but some times it would be nice to have something a little bigger. Noel

I did not see that one, thanks! Looks like this is the Model 235. It does have stake pockets too!

Looks like model 210?
170 lbs
$102.50 in 1970

I just got the same trailer given to me.
Mine is painted over. I thought it might have been home made, but now I know!

Thank You!
Joe

The 210 is 48" long. The 235 is 60" long, which my cart is!

In pic #7 above, I was looking at that hook for pinning the trailer to the tongue. Thought it was something the PO had stuck in there. But, upon closer inspection, it has the green paint on it. So it is the original pin, with a chain on it so it can't be lost. Does that look like a Forest Green, or is it a bit darker?

I have one of those too. Panzer made a cart that looks just like it . I have talked to Jim @ dandy sales who owns all the panzer rights. He had giving me the prints from panzer to make my own cart. They are so close To me I'm not sure if they where made by both Panzer or Kensico.

Ok, now I've got it straight, mine is a 210.
Sure would like to have that 225!
Mine has the same pin to hold the tilt. But, it's hooked in there backwards.
Must be to keep it from working loose.
My tailgate is secured differently to.
Mine was probably Jacobsen orange when new.
