Heavy Duty "Dump Wagon"
"It lets you dump loads up to 1,100 lbs. at the touch of a button, whether you're on or off the ATV," says Keith Evans, Bosski, Inc., Caldwell, Idaho.
The model 1600UT ATV Wagon bed measures 73 in. long by 45 in. wide. An electric motor, operated off the ATV's 12-volt battery, drives a screw jack that cranks the bed up or down.
The ATV Wagon rides on huge 25-in. tires and has four-wheel independent suspension using a superior torsion-bar axle, allowing it to float over rough terrain. The bed load is dumped simply by flipping a switch located on the ATV's handlebar, or upgrade to the wireless controller which easily hooks to your key chain. Electric power brakes provide the stopping power needed to control big loads, another feature found no where else.
"It comes in handy for a lot of different jobs and has more features for its price than anything else on the market," says Evans. It's built from 14-gauge steel and has a frame made from 2-in. sq. tubing; all parts are powder coated. A brake controller and brake/taillight is built into the trailer so all you do is splice your ATV's brake or tail light wire into the included wiring harness.
"Horse owners like this trailer because they can clean out their stalls without having to buy a specialized manure spreader. The wireless option allows you to stay at the trailer to dump a stubborn load, like manure, and precisely control your spreading. The double hinged tailgate can be used in three different ways - spreader style like a dump truck; laid flat like on a pickup; or removed with spring-loaded, quick release pins." Comes in Forest Green and Sport Red.Sells for $1,699. Mention this article at time of purchase and receive a Free Wireless Remote Control Dump - a $160 value.
