What was a rough cost Fuji, need something similar for my place for wood and the likes as well

GG



The trailer was $1050 with high sides 18inch, Add two LT tyres $100, toolbox and added 1feet to drawbar $320, Jockey wheel and spare $140, leds and $130 reg as I added the extra foot to drawbar.
Total 1750. Alot of $$$ but it will see me out. Went to Victorian trailers and they were okay but quality didnt seem to be there.  You can save a few bucks by putting in your own tool box and not getting the LT tyres and extra foot on drawbar, no reg. about $500 there.

I am now the proud owner of a new 6x4 trailer with 18 inch sides. Complete with tool box, spare tyre, jockey wheel, extra long drawbar, new LT tyres on Ford rims :'(. Purchased from Europe trailers. Now to find some wood to cut.

Yay now you just have to find somewhere to store it but Scarps is an ideas man about getting the security cables for it.  Wont be long until firewood season.

Seeing I’m a city dweller I’ve annoyed builders doing house renovations around my local area and with their permission taken old hardwood studs/noggins which were only going to be thrown in the rubbish skip.

Nails can be a pain, but cut is into short lengths and seeing its 40+ years old it burns for ages.

Yes nice trailers for sure. Could have spent more for sure, but where do you stop? Hanging out to collect. Now does anyone know where I can get an insert so I don't scratch the paint from the wood?

Or just do what I did, buy 1/2dozen cans of their touch up paint when you pick it up. $15 per spray pack:-)

 Would you want me to tote said wood from where l stacked it after splitting it after l loaded it in the trailer after l had cut it up . Then l could place  it in  the heater & return to rubbing you tired feet that  have not used for so , so long  . :'(


 The Price has just gone up yet again , buy Beans & use Gas to heat the family  >:D >:D :cheers:

Nice looking trailer fuji san. I'll break the news to my trailer gently...  :D

Now to organise that firewood run. Better service and sharpen the Huski!

BTW if you are looking for a place to put it let me know, might be able to crane it on top of ya roof, will make it hard to steel then!
