thoughts on trailer for yard debris
I want a trailer for the numerous trips I make to the yard debris drop site in my neighborhood. Thinking along the lines of a low bed with a ramp that I can push a wheeled container onto. The container can get kinda heavey. I am concerned about stability and strength with that much load- there is a downhill while loaded. Another idea I had was adapting a golf bag hand cart and allowing the container to sit at angle. I would like to hear if someone has done something similar and how it worked out.
I use a Carry-Freedom Yframe large (20"). I strap a plastic bin to the flatbed and fill that with stuff. I have carried bricks, topsoil, building waste. There is a limit to how much you can carry in a brakeless trailer and one binload is my limit. The bin/flatbed IS my wheeled container.
For large loads, I can strap directly to the flatbed. I use a variety of hacks to keep long things at the correct angle to prevent them striking bike or ground.
