The box and the pin threads and Mating surfaces wear out. If the pipe is used long enough the recirculating sand will wear the inside of the pipe out which may cause it to break while drilling.

Not really big and kinda dumb...
After 2 years my free harbor freight trailer decided it no longer liked having 300 gallons of water on it. It was mostly fine untill the tank slid back beyond the rear axle going up the hill.

Good to know the HF trailer can carry a compact car in a pinch.

No joke. That's like 2500lbs. I'm about to load a 17kw generator, a compressor, a 255 Lincoln and a plasma cutter on my HF trailer. Sounds like I'll be way under it's working load limits.

Having used them a couple times in person (as opposed to just looking at them in the store) I think welding the joints and a welded steel deck would go a hell of a long way toward stiffening it up at which point you'd probably bend the axle if you tried to actually use it hard.

I have a small HF trailer I bought to use behind an atv for moving firewood, etc around at our cabin. I welded it up and painted it with rustoleum and it has really held up well to some rough use.

I've had mine setup for dirt bikes. But since selling both the dirt scoots and the Prius I use to pull them with, it has just sat around. I have some pipe projects here on the farm to weld up and dont want to build a skid for the bed of my truck. I also don't want to get my box van stuck in a field. I figure the HF trailer behind the tractor will be perfect. They really do seem to hold up well though. I figured up that mine had around 1100 lbs on it when I had it loaded up with bikes and gear. It made the trip out to Utah and back like that without any issues. Pretty impressive for a $350 trailer.

Knowing how heavy my 5500lb warehouse forklift is. That's crazy that you didn't even have trailer brakes.

Jesus, dude. How heavy is that trailer? 5-6k lbs? Looks like a mostly steel deck, hydraulic tilt 24'?

26' and your right about everything else. I didn't tow it far, power wise the truck seemed fine. And the brakes felt decent. I did have a load leveling hitch on it, that helped for sure. I sure as hell have towed loads that felt worse. I had I picture on this thread with a old D6 behind my 2500 on a bumper pull. That was just shit.
