How to Build a Lawn Mower Trailer Plans
These plans are for a garden tractor trailer or aka a lawn mower trailer.
This kind of garden utility trailer is a great little thing to have around the house for hauling dirt, rocks, kids, etc. Without one, the usefulness of your lawn mower is surely limited.
It would cost about three times as much to get similar features in a commercial cart, and you can cut building costs in half if you can swipe a wheel or two from obsolete wheelbarrows.
Built to the dimensions suggested, the cart has a heaped capacity of about 7-1/2 cu. ft., or roughly 1000 lbs. of dirt or stone. With the stake sides in place, it will haul a huge pile of leaves, grass clippings or trash.
It takes 5.5-7 hp to haul half-ton loads, so if your power unit has less, you'll either have to make a smaller trailer or be careful how you load this one.
The body is 3/4-in. plywood, and we would suggest using marine grade wood.
These plans were scanned from an old magazine and converted to a convenient downloadable digital PDF file format.
