    Not much for action, but I needed a barrel of off road diesel for my baby Deere and Lo Trac

    We're pulling out big chunks of falling down fence. The Bantam trailer behind the quad is perfect for gathering up posts and wire:

    Pulled about 1000# of sheet goods, hardwood, and chicken food on the small trailer today. Felt good.

    At todays prices, that's a lot of money. Hard to believe how much lumber and romex has gone up.

    Used the Bantam to rake up pine cones and other detritus so we could grass seed this area:

    Do you have to shovel it out, or does the bantam have a tailgate? I'm in need of a floor for my Spen, but I'm looking forward to using it for jeep adventures soon! Does anyone know where to find a reasonably priced replacement floor? Was thinking about trying to cut one out of a pickup, or just flat sheet.

    The civilian trailer has a tailgate so we can shove it out the back. Definitely a nice feature. The load is pretty well centered on the axle so it's not too hard to hand dump it.

    You can get a new floor for the military version here, but it's not cheap: MBT FLOOR PANEL - D&L Bensinger. I like your idea of using a truck bed floor.

    Still don't' have my M416 done yet. But here's a picture of it the day I picked it up.

    i just rebuilt my harbor freight trailer for the third time. Here’s the most recent mod, completed last weekend.

    we took it camping this past week and it performed great. Lots more space than before. But I forgot to take pictures of it in action.

    I *finally* got a hitch on one of the Jeeps so I don't have to tow the Bantam with the quad!

    Used it to haul some mulch tonight:

    This is the third trip like this in 6 days. This jeep is a little workhorse, and the tires on the trailer are somehow still holding air.

    There’s one on the bottom that’s a full 12’ long; that one was heavy. :sleep:
